In this regard, your dentist will make a decision by evaluating the condition of your teeth. Today, the most preferred materials are crownings (zirconium covering) made of porcelain completely or metal-supported porcelain crownings. The difference between them is that full porcelain (zirconium) crownings are more aesthetic.

Crowning operation is completed at 3 appointments on average. If it needs to be done quickly, it can be completed on 2 appointments too. It should be 2-3 days between appointments. Your dentist make preparations on your teeth as needed, cleanses any decay parts if there exists, and takes measurements to obtain a complete tooth model. According to the obtained model, the crown is placed into its own position after it is made. Once you and your dentist are satisfied with the appearance and position of it, the crown is cemented permanently.

Why is the bridgework needed?

They are necessary for your appearance, dental health and dental-jaw function. A bridgework can help at the protection of natural shape of your face and supporting of the lip-neck. The loss of a molar tooth can cause your face to look older and more worn-out than you are. The more important thing is that, if the missing teeth are not resolved, it impairs the mouth and dental health . Each tooth is designed to complete one another. When one tooth is lost, the other teeth move or bend over within time towards the gap that the missing tooth has formed. The tooth on the opposed of jaw also extends to the gap. These unusual tooth movements lead to tensions in both the tooth and the gum. In addition to all these, destruction occurs on gums and bone tissues. Because natural tooth contacts are impaired and therefore physiological cleaning is also inhibited, the teeth become prone to decay.

Missing teeth affect chewing and talking negatively. Speaking properly is possible with a complete tooth structure as they help to make many voices while talking. In addition, one-sided chewing has a pathological burden on the articulations.

What exactly is a bridge denture?

It is a form of treatment based on the principle of covering bycutting the adjacent teeth in order to fill the gaps occured in the case of multiple tooth loss. The bridges are cemented onto the natural teeth that has been cut.

How should we protect the bridge?

It is very important to protect the healthy teeth in our mouths. We should brush at least twice a day and clean with interface cleaners. The cleaners help to clean the sticky bacteria layer that we call plaque. Plaques cause gum disease and tooth decay. If the bone holding the tooth or the tooth is damaged in any way, the tooth may lose the bridge support. In particular, it is necessary to clean carefully the area around and under the bridge and the connection areas with the natural teeth. Dental floss and a special brush will help you reach to these areas. Above all, you should visit your dentist regularly. Please note that the factor of dentist during the planning and construction of the bridge is the most important factor to determine the life of bridge.
