A dental crown is a prosthetic cap that covers a tooth.
A dental bridge, on the other hand, is a prosthetic device that literally bridges the gap created by missing teeth. It is usually 3 crowns that are attached to each other and they get glued on the adjacent teeth of the missing tooth.
We are proud that all our crowns and bridgework are sent to Sydney’s Laboratories for fabrication which delivers high standard results.
Often used to restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of a compromised tooth, a dental crown is cemented into place, fully encasing the dental structure that appears above the gum line. Among the most popular material from where dental crowns are created include porcelain, ceramic, gold, metal alloys, and acrylic. It is ultimately up to your experienced dentist in Annandale to assess and recommend what crown material best suits your condition.
Typically a dental bridge consists of anchor teeth called abutment and in-between false teeth called pontics. Abutment teeth are usually made up of two dental crowns that anchor the entire bridge structure from both ends of the gap. Built between the abutment crowns are pontics, which are basically false teeth that fills the gap.
Dental bridges are usually used to address tooth loss that results to multiple missing teeth. Much like dental crowns, there are several materials available in creating dental bridges. These include porcelain, gold, and base-metal alloys. Also, much like dental crowns it is your dentist Annandale that assesses what bridge material works best for you.
