Crowns and Bridges Q & A


What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are protective caps for your teeth. Typically, the coverings protect a damaged tooth or are used for cosmetic purposes to improve the tooth’s appearance. Crowns come in different materials, including:

  • All metal (classic gold crown)
  • Ceramic on metal
  • All ceramic

The material choice depends on various factors and personal choice, but an all-ceramic crown looks the most natural. At Warminster Dental Arts, the preference is the ceramic-on-metal crown because it’s the most durable while still looking natural. 

What are dental bridges?

If you want to replace a missing tooth without wearing dentures or undergoing surgery, a dental bridge is an excellent choice. Dental bridges connect the gap created by a missing tooth. 

A bridge consists of attaching two crowns on either side of the missing tooth and a false tooth in between. Once in place, the dental bridge looks natural. It’s made of ceramic or porcelain material to match the surrounding teeth.

What are the types of dental crowns?

When it comes to choosing the right dental crown for your teeth, you have a few different choices at Warminster Dental Arts, including the following. 

Ceramic or porcelain 

Ceramic or porcelain crowns restore your front teeth and blend with your natural tooth color. 

Porcelain fused to metal

Porcelain fused to metal crowns provides a durable choice that’s stronger than regular porcelain. 

Gold alloys

These crowns use a mixture of gold, copper, and other metals. They offer a strong tooth bond while ensuring they never fracture or erode the tooth itself.

Base metal alloys

These contain non-noble or non-precious metals that are highly resistant to corrosion and allow you to keep most of your healthy teeth before being applied.

What are the types of dental bridges?

Like crowns, dental bridges come in a variety of materials and style choices. During your initial consultation, Dr. Motwani helps you make the right decision for your teeth and smile.

Traditional bridges

Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge, using two or more crowns on either side of the missing tooth to secure the false tooth in place. 

Cantilever bridges

Cantilever bridges are used when there aren’t adjacent teeth on one side of the missing tooth. 

Maryland bonded bridges

One false tooth has wings on both sides and is then bonded to the surrounding teeth.
