FAQs

A crown is a cap that covers a damaged tooth to restore its appearance and function, while a bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring to the adjacent teeth or implants.

With proper care, including good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups, crowns and bridges can last 5-15 years or even longer. The lifespan depends on the material used and individual habits.

No, both crowns and bridges are designed to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable from your original teeth.

The procedure involves numbing the area around the tooth, so you shouldn’t feel pain during the process. Some mild discomfort or sensitivity may be experienced after the procedure, but this usually subsides quickly.

Yes, but with care. While crowns and bridges restore most of the function of your teeth, it’s important to avoid overly hard or sticky foods that could damage the restoration. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits are essential to maintain them.

Care for crowns and bridges as you would your natural teeth. Brush twice a day, floss daily, and see your dentist regularly. Special flosses and brushes are available to help clean around bridges effectively.

Crowns and bridges can be made from porcelain, ceramic, gold, metal alloys, or a combination of materials. The choice of material depends on the location of the tooth, aesthetic considerations, and functional needs.

If your crown or bridge becomes loose, falls out, or is damaged, contact us immediately for advice and to schedule a repair or replacement. Avoid trying to fix it yourself, as this could cause further damage or complications.
