Crown And Bridge
Both dental bridges and dental crowns make use of prosthetic devices to bring back your lost smile. According to the dentists, a crown is used when a tooth is damaged or fractured, while a bridge is used when one or more than one tooth is missing.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic appliance that is used to treat patients with a missing tooth. Bridges are made up of porcelain and are fused to metal for improving the chewing ability and look of the teeth. A bridge comprises false teeth that are firmly fixed between two crowns.
Others will only pay for treatment if the teeth in question have never received a dental crown or bridge, or, only if the previous crown or bridge are of a certain age. To be sure, visit your dentist for a personalized treatment plan and to have an estimate (also called a predetermination) sent to your insurance provider.
