Crowns and bridges

What are dental crowns and bridges?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over decayed or damaged teeth to restore their strength, shape, and appearance. They are custom-made from materials like porcelain or metal alloys and cover the visible portion of the tooth above the gum line.

Dental bridges are fixed prosthetics used to replace missing teeth. They come with artificial teeth that are held in their place by dental crowns attached to adjacent natural teeth or implants.

Both dental crowns and bridges provide durable, customized solutions for dental restoration, enhancing functionality and aesthetics.

When does one need dental crowns and bridges?

Here are some cases where a dental crown may be necessary:
Severe tooth decay:  When a tooth has extensive decay that cannot be adequately restored with a filling, a crown might be used to strengthen the tooth.
Fractured or cracked tooth:   If a tooth is cracked, fractured, or weakened, a crown can provide stability and prevent further damage.
Root canal treatment:  After undergoing a root canal procedure, a tooth may become weak and brittle. A crown is placed over the tooth treated to prevent future damage.
Large dental filling:  If a tooth has a large filling and there is limited natural tooth structure remaining, a crown may be recommended to provide additional support.

What are the advantages of dental crowns and tooth bridge service?

Dental Crowns

Crowns protect and restore teeth with severe decay, fractures, or large fillings, allowing them to regain strength and function.

They are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of natural teeth.
Crowns are made from materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys, which are strong and long-lasting.

Dental Bridges

A tooth bridge service helps maintain proper tooth alignment, preventing issues like shifting teeth, bite problems, and jawbone deterioration.
Unlike removable dentures, bridges are fixed in place, eliminating the need for removal or special cleaning routines.
