Crowns and Bridges Q & A

What are crowns and bridges?

Crowns and bridges available at Freeman Dental are tooth restorations that repair or replace damaged teeth. 

Crowns fit over the top of affected teeth to improve their strength and overall appearance. Crowns also attach to dental implants, which are artificial tooth roots your dentist places within your jaw bone. 

Dental bridges replace missing or extracted permanent teeth. They contain artificial teeth attached to two crowns or multiple implant-supported crowns linked together.

What are the benefits of crowns and bridges?

The many benefits you can expect after receiving crowns and bridges at Freeman Dental include:

  • Healthier teeth and gums
  • No more tooth gaps
  • Stronger teeth
  • Beautiful smile
  • Less adjacent teeth shifting
  • Clearer speech
  • Easier chewing
  • Lower risk of future oral health issues
  • Full set of teeth

There’s no pain and minimal to no downtime associated with getting crowns and bridges, but these restorations often dramatically improve the look of your teeth and smile. 

Are crowns and bridges right for me?

Your Freeman Dental specialist lets you know if you’re a candidate for crowns and bridges after reviewing your oral health history, examining your teeth and gums, and reviewing the results of your dental X-rays. 

They also ask about your lifestyle, preferences, and desired outcome before personalizing your restorative dental treatment plan. 

What happens during the placement of crowns and bridges?

Your dentist numbs the treatment area, as necessary, before removing any dental decay and digitally scanning your teeth. This allows a dental lab to make a custom-fitted crown or bridge that comfortably fits in your mouth.

If you’re a candidate for implant-supported restorations, your provider places metal tooth roots into your jawbone. After a healing period, they scan your mouth, develop new crowns or bridges, and firmly secure them to the dental implants.

How can I take good care of crowns and bridges?

To take good care of crowns and bridges, you should brush your teeth after meals and floss every day. Don’t chew on ice or other hard objects. 

Be sure to call the Freeman Dental office if your tooth restoration gets damaged or falls out, and plan to see your dental specialist every six months for dental cleanings and exams.
