Crown and Bridge Work

Crowns and bridges are intended as durable replacements for teeth. They aim to replicate the original form and function as closely as possible. Treatment for a crown or bridge is more complex than for a regular filling. You will need to visit your dentist several times for this treatment.

What is a crown?
A crown is a cap made of metal and/or porcelain that fits precisely over a trimmed tooth or molar. The cap is cemented onto the tooth or molar. A crown restores the tooth or molar to its original shape.

When might a crown be necessary?
1. There is insufficient support for a filling. Due to tooth decay, a large part of the tooth or molar may have been lost.
2. Improvement of appearance. (Usually this concerns discolored and/or poorly shaped teeth or molars that are located at the front of the mouth).
What is a bridge?

If one or more teeth are missing, they can be replaced by a bridge. A bridge consists of two or more crowns that fit onto pillars and a bridging element. This bridging element is also called a 'dummy'. The two crowns with the dummy are then placed as one piece.

When might a bridge be necessary? 1) To improve chewing. 2) Enhancement of appearance. (Usually concerning discolored and/or poorly shaped teeth located at the front of the mouth.) How does the placement of a crown or bridge work? The placement of a crown or bridge occurs in steps. This requires two or three visits to your dentist. You won't receive a crown or bridge immediately. This process takes about one to two weeks.

An implant resembles a titanium screw and can be compared to an artificial root, which can be placed in the location of the root of the tooth or molar that has been lost in your mouth. This titanium is highly biocompatible, meaning the body does not reject it, allowing bone to grow directly against it. This process is called osseointegration. The surface of many implants is made rougher, which accelerates bone growth around the implant and ensures that it will be more securely anchored in the bone after healing.

What are Implants? Implants are artificial roots made of titanium. A crown, bridge, or denture can be placed on them. An implant serves as a replacement for the natural root that is anchored in the jawbone and holds your teeth and molars in place.

A denture leads to bone resorption. When your teeth or molars are broken or even completely missing, they can be replaced by a crown or denture. To place a crown or even a complete denture, an implant is the best solution. If a root is damaged by the broken tooth or molar, your jawbone may shrink over the years. This will drastically change your facial appearance.

Preservation of your jawline Through years of practical experience, supported by clinical research, it has been shown that titanium artificial roots are well accepted by the bone and will essentially become one with the jawbone through bone growth. As a result, your jaw will shrink less, and the shape of your face will not change. You will retain your jawline and thus your appearance.

Implants feel natural: With implants, your teeth and molars feel natural and retain the strength and resilience they've always had. Implants help you continue with confidence in your daily life.


When is a dental implant used? If you are missing one or even all of your teeth and want to be able to speak, laugh, and eat what you like without hindrance, then implants are the solution for you. An implant is an artificial root that is placed in the upper or lower jaw. The placement of an implant is a simple procedure under local anesthesia.

Accidents during sports, at home, or at work: Due to our busy and active lifestyles, risks are becoming greater. Sports are healthy, fun, challenging, and sociable. However, they sometimes also come with risks; the golf swing that goes a bit too far, the hockey ball, the elbow in football or squash. Additionally, a large portion of accidents occur in and around the home. An accident can happen in the blink of an eye but can sometimes have far-reaching consequences.

You are missing teeth due to natural wear and tear. Teeth and molars wear down through daily use. That's why older people usually have one or more missing teeth and molars. And everyone wants a complete set of teeth, right?
