A beautiful smile can be challenging to achieve when you have experienced significant tooth damage or lost teeth altogether. An excellent way to address these cosmetic issues is to use ceramic crowns and bridges.

Ceramic Crowns and Bridges

What is a Ceramic Crown?

A crown is used to cover or cap a damaged tooth. When facing extensive dental tissue loss, they are a good option for a tooth that has fractured or cracked, for discolored or poorly shaped teeth, etc. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant.

What is a Ceramic Bridge?

A ceramic bridge is used when one or more teeth are missing. The “bridge” fills in the gap left by these missing teeth. Without a bridge, the teeth on either side of the gap are prone to shifting into the empty space, causing issues with your bite. Leaving missing teeth without a bridge can also lead to TMJ or gum disease.

Why You Should Consider Ceramic Crowns and Bridges

When you have damaged or missing teeth, it is vital to treat the issue, whether with a crown or bridge. Leaving the issue untreated can cause additional damage to weakened teeth, tooth loss, jaw and gum disease issues, etc.

Choosing a ceramic crown or bridge gives the added benefit of a beautiful smile. Ceramic crowns and bridges are made to look like real teeth and, when properly placed, will hide the missing tooth gap or damaged tooth. A dentist clinic can also match the color of a ceramic crown or bridge to your existing teeth – giving a uniform look.
