What you need to know about crowns and bridgework

Today’s dental crowns and bridgework provide both increased chewing function and increased beauty for your smile. If you have crowns and bridgesdamaged or badly decayed teeth, you don’t have to put up with bulky, unsightly metal fillings when a crown is a much better option. If you have missing teeth you don’t have to live with open spaces in your smile when dental bridgework can restore your full, beautiful smile. Dr. Brenda Faulk at The Baltimore Dental Center in Pikesville, Maryland wants you to know how crowns and bridgework can help you.

Your new crowns and bridgework can be matched to your existing teeth, to provide a completely natural and beautiful look. Modern dental materials and techniques create dental work that is both strong and beautiful. Dr. Faulk offers a full range of materials for you to choose from for your new crown:

  • Full gold, which is the strongest crown material and typically used for back teeth that don’t show when you smile
  • Porcelain-fused-to-gold, which is both strong and beautiful, called a PFG crown; these can be placed on any tooth
  • Full porcelain, which is the most beautiful crown material and usually placed on teeth visible when you smile

Dr. Faulk wants you to know crowns are a much stronger solution than fillings because a crown literally holds your tooth together, keeping it from breaking. Large fillings can make your tooth weaker and susceptible to fracture.

Dental bridgework can restore your full smile. If you have missing teeth, a dental bridge can give you back full chewing function and make your smile complete and beautiful. Bridges are usually preferable to removable partials because a bridge doesn’t move around. You will be more confident when you speak and eat, knowing your teeth will stay in place!

Dr. Faulk will match the color of your crowns and bridgework perfectly, so your restorations look natural. You want people to notice your smile, not your crowns or bridgework!
