Crowns and bridges

Protection and reinforcement with a crown

Crowns and bridges

If a tooth or molar has already been largely repaired with fillings or if a root canal treatment has been carried out in the tooth or molar, the dentist can advise you to provide such a tooth or molar with a crown to strengthen it. thus reducing the risk of breakage. You can imagine a crown as a cap that goes over the part of your tooth that protrudes above the gums.

A bridge is made when you are missing 1 or more teeth. You can see the bridge as several crowns that are attached to each other. The bridge is then secured to the teeth next to the missing teeth. How the manufacture works is explained in the following steps:

Step 1
The dentist will first grind the tooth or molar to make room for the crown. Then the dentist will take an impression of the ground tooth and the opposite jaw. The dentist will then work with you to determine the color for the definitive crown or bridge and finally the dentist will place a temporary provision on your tooth.

Step 2
You will return after approximately 2 weeks. The dentist will remove the emergency device and place the permanent crown or bridge after it has been properly fitted and approved.

Frequently Asked Questions about Crowns and Bridges

In which cases is it recommended to make a crown or bridge?

  • When a tooth or molar has already been extensively repaired with fillings.
  • After a tooth or molar has undergone root canal treatment.
  • When you are missing a tooth or molar and would like to replace it.
  • When you want to correct the shape or position of your teeth.
  • If you have lost a lot of tooth tissue due to wear and tear
  • If you have severe discoloration of your teeth or molars, for example because your enamel has not formed properly.

My dentist has advised me to make a crown on my tooth, is this really necessary?

Usually the dentist will advise you for the above cases. It is important to know that long-term scientific studies have clearly shown that the lifespan of an extensively repaired tooth can in many cases be extended by placing a crown or bridge on it.

What is the best way to clean my crown or bridge?

Just like with your other teeth and molars, it is important to also properly maintain teeth that have a crown or bridge placed on them. This means that in addition to brushing twice a day, you must also clean the space between the teeth once a day with, for example, toothpicks, dental floss or small brushes. The dentist or dental hygienist can work with you to see what is most practical in your case.

What material is a crown or bridge made of?

There are different materials that a crown or bridge can be made of. Including gold, metal-porcelain, zirconium-porcelain or full porcelain. The different materials each have their own advantages and disadvantages, the dentist can discuss this with you and make a choice.

How long does a crown or bridge last?

Scientific research has shown that a crown or bridge can last an average of 10 years. For this it is important that the crown or bridge is well maintained.

What are the costs for a crown or bridge?

Very glad I switched to this dentist. I have always been afraid of the dentist, but here I am so put at ease and cavities are filled so quickly and well that I sit there with a relaxed feeling. Almost no holes anymore because of all the good advice, so that's great. Recommended!

Very nice practice. When you are in pain, they immediately make room for you, and the dentist and dental hygienist are very patient and friendly. They also explain very clearly what they are doing and why, which I always find very pleasant. I'm a pretty anxious patient, but I feel in good hands here!
