Can dental crowns help replace missing teeth?

Yes, in some situations. 

While a dental crown is not enough by itself to replace an entire missing tooth, our Fairfax dentist uses crowns for teeth to complete other dental restorations. 

If you have a missing tooth, a crown can work alongside a dental implant or a dental bridge to strengthen and support your smile.

Dental Crowns Replace Missing Teeth on Implants

Dental implants consist of three individual components that join together to form one durable, reliable restoration. 

The crown is the portion of the dental implant that you can see, as the titanium post is below the gum line, and the metal abutment is covered up. Crowns for teeth help dental implants look and feel natural, and they are the component that comes into contact with your food when you chew. 

Dental Crowns Replace Missing Teeth on Dental Bridges

Dental bridges help “bridge” a space between natural teeth. When you lose a tooth, a bridge can fill in the gap left behind using a false tooth called a “pontic.” 

A dental bridge can have one pontic or several pontics, and the pontic always rests between two neighboring dental crowns. These crowns can be from natural teeth if those teeth are healthy enough, but the tooth crowns can also be artificial dental restorations that Dr. Fairfax attaches to your natural teeth or even to a dental implant post.
