Crowns and Bridges Q & A

Dental Arts of Orange County

What are crowns and bridges?

Crowns and bridges are types of oral prosthetic fixtures that get cemented onto your existing teeth or implants.

A crown is often made of durable porcelain and provides protection and reinforcement to compromised teeth. You usually get a crown to cover a damaged tooth or implant.

Bridges are also commonly made of porcelain and act as a false-tooth set between two crowns. Bridges are used to fill the gap of a missing tooth.

Why are dental crowns used?

Beyond strengthening your damaged tooth, dental crowns can also enhance the shape, alignment, and appearance of the tooth. Crowns can also be fit on top of your dental implant, allowing Dr. Batorfalvy to create an identical shape and structure of a natural tooth.

Dental crowns can be used to:

  • Protect a weak tooth from cracking or fracturing
  • Replace a large filling when not enough of your original tooth remains
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a discolored, stained, or poorly shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that’s had a root canal

When is a dental bridge used?

Dr. Batorfalvy may recommend a dental bridge if you're missing one tooth or multiple teeth.

The gaps left behind by missing teeth will ultimately cause your remaining teeth to move or rotate into the empty spaces. Such gaps can result in a misaligned bite and cause imbalances that could lead to oral issues such as gum disease.

Some of the benefits of a dental bridge include:

  • Maintaining the natural shape of your face
  • Restoring and improving your smile
  • Restoring your ability to speak and chew
  • Properly distributing your bite force
  • Preventing your remaining teeth from shifting
