Types of Dental Crowns and Bridges

At EDentist Dandenong, we offer two types of dental crowns: onlays and inlays. Onlays cover the entire top of the tooth and are best for teeth that have sustained cracks or chips that have worn down the top layer of the enamel. Inlays fit inside the tooth’s top surface and fill holes too large for typical fillings. Both inlays and onlays require the dentist to remove tooth material before securely bonding the crown to your tooth with a durable dental cement.

While crowns cover a single tooth, bridges fill gaps from missing teeth. Bridges typically have one or two false teeth that connect to crowns on each end that anchor to your existing teeth. Bridges and crowns together are permanent replacements for missing or damaged teeth that restore your smile to its original appearance. The typical porcelain dental crown can last upwards of 15 years if you practice good oral habits. 

What to Expect When Getting Dental Crowns

The entire process of getting crowns or bridges takes a few days. First, your dentist takes X-rays of your mouth and removes a small amount of existing tooth material to prepare the site. They then take an impression of the tooth and place a temporary crown. We send the impression to a lab that fabricates the permanent crown or bridge. At the next appointment, your dentist removes the temporary crown and affixes the permanent crown.

After the procedure, you will have to avoid hard brushing for about two weeks. You should also stay away from hard and sticky foods like popcorn and gum because these can crack your fixtures or pull them out.

Frequently Asked Questions

You are not supposed to remove crowns or bridges unless they are temporary placeholders for permanent fixtures. Dentists can remove crowns or bridges if they break or cause a dental issue.
Most people are good candidates for dental crowns, even if they have some tooth decay or cavities. If you do not have enough tooth structure and mass to anchor the fixture, dentures might be the more appropriate solution for missing or broken teeth.
