A complete spectrum of smile solutions is available at West Morris Dental in Hackettstown, New Jersey, including custom dental bridges and crowns. Let’s take a closer look at these two restorative treatments and how they can help patients throughout Warren County achieve their very best smile and oral health.

Dental Bridges vs. Crowns

Every tooth is essential; each works to help you chew and keep other teeth aligned. Failing to replace missing teeth in a timely manner can result in all sorts of problems, from shifting teeth and chewing difficulties to bone loss and changes in facial contours. That’s where dental bridges come in!

A dental bridge is a permanent replacement for a missing tooth that “bridges” the gap in your smile. Typically crafted form porcelain, a bridge is made to look like a real tooth and is secured in place by abutment teeth on either side of the gap. Because a dental bridge impacts the surrounding teeth, having two healthy adjacent teeth is essential. Once a bridge is placed, no one will be able to tell that you had a tooth missing and normal chewing function will be restored. A bridge must be maintained by flossing and following our recommended cleaning schedule so tooth decay doesn’t damage the gums and surrounding abutment teeth. In most cases, a dental bridge requires a minimum of three appointments to design and fit. 

Dental crowns are another popular cosmetic solution. Unlike dental bridges that address missing teeth, a crown (or “cap”) is used to cover a damaged tooth and improve its shape, alignment, and appearance. We may recommend a crown for a few reasons:

  • To address a significantly decayed tooth that requires more than a traditional filling
  • To cover and preserve the stability of a fractured tooth
  • To bolster an infected tooth that has had its pulp removed (a procedure known as a root canal)

Dental crowns can be made of porcelain or ceramic to match the natural appearance of your teeth. A crown is typically done in two visits, but another visit or two is often necessary to ensure the crown fits precisely.
