About Crowns and Bridges

Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are fixed into existing teeth or implants. Crowns are commonly used to replace a large filling, protect a weak tooth from fracturing, cover a dental implant etc. Bridges on the other hand are commonly used if you are missing one or more teeth. They cover the space where the teeth are missing and are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space. The most important steps you can take to ensure that your crowns and bridges lasts longer, is to practice good oral hygiene, brush and floss daily, go for regular dental check-ups and cleaning and avoid chewing hard food like ice.
