What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?

Ahh Smile crown and bridge dental applications are customized prosthetic devices cemented onto a patient’s teeth or implants that generally cover or “cap” damaged teeth or cover implants, as well as cover space that results from missing a tooth or several teeth. While different, both crowns and bridges each share advantages for patients and are excellent options for covering gaps, damaged teeth and implants.

Dental Crowns

Ahh Smile dental crowns are protective covers or “caps” that fit over broken or decayed teeth. Dental crowns are drilled into a pin and the tooth-shaped crown is placed over the prepared tooth. The result of an Ahh Smile dental crown applications is a full coverage and restoration of the alignment, strength, and shape of a tooth or teeth. Ahh Smile dental crowns come in a variety of customized materials and finishes, including porcelain crowns, ceramic, crowns, acrylic crowns, golden crowns, and metal alloy crowns. Though different options vary in aesthetically pleasing characteristics and durability, all of Ahh Smile dental crown choices are known to be strong and long lasting.

Ahh Smile dental crowns give patients many advantages, including an overall aesthetic enhancement of their teeth and smile, a natural look that resembles natural teeth, significant protection to the deficient tooth, and a long lasting restoration and solution.

Dental Bridges

Ahh Smile dental bridges are a great solution to covering gaps between existing natural teeth or implants. As gaps from missing teeth can cause an all-around undesired rotation or shifting of the teeth into the empty spaces, patients are highly encouraged to receive a dental bridge application. Neglecting to do so can continuously cause unfavorable effects, such as a bad bite and gum disease that could easily be prevented by a dental bridge.

Ahh Smile dental bridges are pasted onto the natural teeth or implants immediately surrounding the gap. A replacement tooth is then inserted, thus covering the empty space, ultimately creating an enhanced dental appearance and restoring the alignment of the teeth.

Among the benefits that Ahh Smile dental bridges offer, some include an impactful restoration of their smile and overall appearance, restores regular mouth actions and movements including chewing properly and speaking, and highly prevents a patient’s remaining teeth from misalignment.

The main difference between a dental bridge and a dental crown is that the dental bridge uses the existing teeth to fill in the empty area, as the adjacent teeth serve as the anchors to the inserted prosthetic tooth; a crown is a “cap” inserted onto a tooth without removal or implantation and restores a tooth to its original appearance and prevents future damage.

Just like with dental crowns, Ahh Smile dental bridges are also offered in various materials and finishes, including porcelain bridges, acrylic bridges, and metal alloy bridges.

How Long Do Ahh Smile Dental Crowns and Bridges Last?

Ahh Smile Family Dentistry dental crown and bridge applications are known to be highly durable and long lasting, and can last anywhere between five and fifteen years, even longer if a patient maintains good oral hygiene and receives regular dental checkups and examinations.

Ahh Smile Dental Crown or Dental Bridge Replacement Process

Though exceptionally long lasting, Ahh Smile dental crowns and bridges do have a lifespan. Poor oral hygiene as well as other bad habits such as chewing on fingernails or ice can cause a deterioration of the application. The best way to avoid this and ensure the maximum lifespan of a dental crown or a dental bridge is to regularly schedule dental exams and checkups. Fortunately, in the case that a dental crown or dental bridge has reached the point of replacement, Ahh Smile can perform a gentle removal process and rapidly start working on making a replacement. During the process, the patient will receive a thorough cleansing of any decay or built-up unwanted residue before the application of the new dental crown or dental bridge.
