Crowns and bridges are a treatment through which teeth conditions are repaired. In crown treatment, new teeth are implanted on the decaying or damaged tooth. In bridges treatment, a gap between teeth is filled by implanting a specific number of teeth in the gaps. The crowns and bridges are fixed onto existing teeth and can only be removed by a professional. These devices are usually made from the ceramic material but sometimes gold, silver or acrylic can also be used.
Dental crowns treatment is done widely to protect a weak tooth or to restore a broken tooth. On the other hand, dental bridges are used to restore the shape of the face, improve or recover person’s ability to chew or talk and at the same time to stop remaining teeth from shifting out of position. These devices are implanted on the already existing teeth by a dentist. Dentists around the world recommend dental crown and bridge treatments owing to the comfortable and efficient process compared to other measures and the result patients get are better than other devices.
