What is an emergency dental crown?
A dental crown is a customized cap created to cover a damaged or decayed tooth. Crowns can restore problem teeth to their ideal size, shape, and strength. They are made of many different materials such as porcelain, gold, ceramic, resins, and metals. Speaking with your dentist will help you determine what material is best for you.
What is an emergency dental bridge?
Similar to crowns, bridges correct damage done to your teeth. The difference between the two is that bridges are designed to quite literally bridge an unnatural gap. When a tooth goes missing, leaving an empty space on your gum line can cause teeth to shift significantly. This affects your smile as well as your bite. A bridge is a false tooth inserted to replace a missing tooth, held together by two crowns on adjoining sides. When it comes to emergency crown and bridge services, it’s important to choose Ranieu Family Dental in Vancouver WA. At Ranieu Family Dental, our dentists always provide top-of-the-line care.

What is the Difference between a Crown and a Bridge
As stated above, emergency crowns and bridges are similar in that they offer relief and repair to damaged teeth. But differ in their respective functions. A dental crown is a cap created to fit perfectly over a damaged or decayed tooth and protect it from further deterioration. It will restore the tooth’s natural shape and appearance with the help of metals, gold, and other materials. A dental crown is a permanent solution used when a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a standard filling or other restoration techniques. The crown is custom-made to match the patient’s existing teeth and is held in place with a dental adhesive. Emergency crowns are most often completed in one visit. This offers immediate relief for the patient. A dental bridge, on the other hand, is a prosthetic device used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. As opposed to offering protection to an existing tooth like a crown. Bridges are held in place either with two crowns on adjoining teeth or implanted directly into the jawbone with dental anchors. Bridges are a permanent solution to missing teeth. Not only can they improve the appearance of the patient’s smile but dental bridges restore the ability to bite and chew properly. Bridges are finished over the course of multiple visits due to their more challenging installation process.
