Crowns and Bridges Q & A

What are Crowns?

If you’ve experienced damage and need an extra layer of protection, you can have a crown placed to cover the sensitive teeth. They’re custom made to match the shape and size of your tooth. Most crowns are made from porcelain or porcelain composite, so they blend in with your natural tooth color.

Crowns provide reinforcement to vulnerable teeth and cosmetic enhancements for dull teeth that have been discolored.

How Do You Take Care of Crowns?

Crowns can be treated much like your natural teeth. You’ll brush and floss normally, but when you do it’s important to avoid jerking the dental floss so you don’t accidentally pull the crown loose.

Since crowns are made from porcelain, they can be scratched. A soft-bristle toothbrush is recommended.  

Dr. Liao will check on your crown at each visit. If you notice your crown is feeling differently or is uncomfortable resting in your mouth, call Sunrise Dental to get it corrected.

What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are a long-term tooth replacement method because they’re cemented into place using the surrounding teeth. Bridges are used to replace one or more teeth.

Usually, a dental bridge replaces small groups of teeth that are missing. For example, if the front 2-3 teeth are missing, a bridge may be the best way to create a natural-looking replacement. For this, we would recommend a removable partial denture.

Dental bridges are typically made from porcelain, as it can be made to match the shade of your natural tooth.

You can inquire with Dr. Liao about getting a bridge for yourself at your next appointment.

How Do You Take Care of Dental Bridges?

Bridges can be cared for when you brush and floss your natural teeth. Just remember to be gentle with the dental floss to avoid loosening the bridge, and use a soft-bristle toothbrush to avoid scratching the porcelain. If the bridge is well placed, you’ll forget that it’s even there.

If you’re dealing with damaged or missing teeth, crowns or dental bridges can be your ideal solution. Use the easy online appointment maker or call Sunrise Dental to arrange an appointment with Dr. Liao.
