Do you often look at your uneven smile in the mirror and wish you had a better-looking one? Dentistry not only aims at helping you maintain optimum oral hygiene but also ensures you sport a beautiful and attractive smile. Perhaps, two of the most popular cosmetic dental restorations are crowns and bridges.
What are crowns?
Dental crowns are ceramic restorations that are used to cover the outer surface of a severely damaged tooth completely. They look like natural teeth but are hollow on the inside. Dentists use crowns to restore teeth that are cracked, chipped, worn out, weak, or spaced too far apart from each other.
What are dental bridges?
Bridges are a simple means to restore extracted natural teeth. They are a combination of a solid prosthetic tooth combined with crowns on either side. The crowns hold the tooth in place. As opposed to dental implants, bridges do not require surgery to be bonded.
