How are crowns and bridges different from partial dentures?

Your dentist in Darwin, NT offers tooth replacement options to help you restore your smile and the function of your bite. We want you to be able to enjoy your favourite foods and a happy, healthy smile.

What Is A Dental Crown?

While dental crowns in Casuarina have many uses—from general dentistry to cosmetic—they also support dental bridges to complete your smile if you have missing teeth.

What Is A Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a restoration tooth or teeth fitted between dental crowns. Dental crowns in Casuarina cap healthy adjacent teeth, allowing the restorative teeth to fill in your smile gap.

A dental bridge is similar to a partial denture because both stand-in for missing teeth. However, a dental bridge is attached and cannot be removed. A partial denture, which relies on clips and supporting healthy teeth for stability, may be removed for cleaning or during sleep.   

Caring for a dental bridge requires a floss threader and a small cleaning brush. Partial denture maintenance relies on denture pastes, a denture brush and a cleaning bath. Your dentist in Darwin recommends daily cleanings for both appliances. A member of our team or your dentist in 0810 will provide more specific instructions.
