Dental Crowns Glenview
A dental crown (cap) is a restoration to replace lost teeth structure. There are various types of crowns, ranging from full porcelain to full metal crowns. Your dentist will detail the advantages and disadvantages of each kind for you.
Crowns can also be utilized for attaching a bridge if the structure of the surrounding teeth is fragile. A bridge is a dental appliance that is used to replace multiple missing teeth. They are designed to be cosmetically appealing and provide proper restoration. Like crowns, bridges are completely customizable and prepared from various materials, including porcelain and metals. Although not as permanent as a cap, bridges are bonded to the surrounding teeth and can only be removed by your dentist.
Both crowns and bridges are fabricated to match the color, height, texture, and overall appearance of your teeth. Most crowns and bridges will last for decades, eliminating the need to replace them unless they fall out or become unsecured. You may extend the lifespan of your crowns and bridges by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting your dentist for regular examinations and cleanings.
