What is a Crown?
A crown is a type of covering which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Typically, crowns are needed when a cavity jeopardizes the ongoing health of a tooth.
Crowns are often bonded to the tooth using an adhesive or dental cement. Besides improving the strength of teeth, crowns are also used to improve appearance of teeth. When you are looking for Crown and Bridge dental services here in El Paso, call us first. .
What is a Bridge?
A dental bridge fuses 3 or more dental crowns together to replace missing teeth. Essentially, two crowns on the existing teeth act as a “bridge” where a false tooth is held between them in the area of the missing tooth.
Bridges allow you to chew as you normally would before the tooth was missing. Placing a permanent bridge in the empty space will not only help you to chew as you would before, but it also prevents teeth from shifting, which can occur in a tooth’s absence. Bridges offer a lower cost alternative to implants while providing the same aesthetic benefits.
