Damaged teeth, missing teeth or other tooth problems can interfere with your quality of life. As you’ve probably experienced for yourself, these dental concerns can reduce your self-esteem, impact your work life and personal relationships, and make it more difficult to eat and talk properly. These experiences don’t create conditions for living life to its fullest.
Fortunately, certain dental solutions can fix these concerns to give you a better smile and a better life. Crowns and bridges are two of the solutions available to you. In the Medina, OH area, our dentist Dr. Jeff Evanko can provide a consultation and help you figure out if these options are right for your situation.
How Can Crowns or Bridges Help?
These solutions offer differing benefits, as crowns can be used alone or as part of a bridge. Our dentist may recommend covering a problematic tooth with a crown, while bridges work with crowns to fill in spaces where there’s a missing tooth.
Crowns are often made of porcelain or ceramic to mimic the natural look of teeth. They add strength and a better appearance when used to cover a tooth that’s fractured, discolored, misshapen or has other problems. A crown can also be used when a tooth is missing when attached to a bridge or a dental implant.
Bridges fill in gaps from missing teeth by attaching to the natural teeth or implants on each side of the gap. With a bridge, the dentist covers the surrounding teeth with crowns that are attached to a replacement tooth to fill the space in between.
