The Difference Between Dental Crowns, Bridges, Inlays, and Outlays

Dental crowns and bridges are both fixed oral devices. An inlay crown fits in the indent on the top of your tooth to protect a tooth if a cavity is too large for a traditional filling, while onlays cap the entire surface of the tooth for more severe damage. We use crowns to strengthen a fractured tooth, cover an implant or discoloured tooth, or protect a damaged tooth after root canal treatment. Bridges, on the other hand, replace missing teeth. We can use bridges to fill the gap left by one or multiple teeth. Dental bridges restore tooth structure by giving you an entire row of usable teeth.

At EDentist Canterbury, we use dental bridges in conjunction with dental crowns. We first install the crowns on healthy existing teeth on either side of your gap. We then attach the dental bridge to the crowns to stay firmly in place and ensure strong oral function.


Procedure for Dental Crowns and Bridges

Our procedure for dental crowns and bridges starts with an initial consultation. During this meeting, we’ll pinpoint the colour and obtain a 3D model of your existing tooth. We send these details to a laboratory to begin the construction of your permanent crowns or bridges. The colour and 3D model ensure that your crowns or bridges will fit perfectly and match the shade of your teeth. We then place temporary crowns or bridges to help your teeth function while you await the permanent devices. While you have your temporary crown or bridge, we recommend avoiding hard and sticky foods as they’re less durable than your permanent restorations.

The next visit typically occurs a week or two later. We’ll use dental resin cement during your second appointment to fix your permanent crowns or bridges. You may feel slight discomfort after the placement, but over-the-counter pain medications can help.

Why Get Dental Crowns and Bridges From EDentist Canterbury

Bridges or dental crowns in Canterbury will restore the aesthetics of your smile and allow you to eat, drink, and speak normally. These dental devices can also prevent future issues. For example, missing teeth can cause your remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the gap, causing a misaligned bite and possibly leading to gum disease. Dental crowns and bridges also have the advantages of never decaying or experiencing cavities, looking just like your natural teeth, and lasting years.

If missing or damaged teeth affect your ability to chew, eat, smile, or partake in any other everyday activity, schedule a consultation with EDentist Canterbury.
