Crown & Bridges

What Is A Dental Crown?

So what is a dental crown? It’s a cap, or cover, that dentists put over a tooth. Dental crowns restore the tooth in question to its normal size, shape, and function. Crowns can even make your teeth stronger and improve the way they look.

There are a few reasons you might want to get yourself a crown: cavities that are too large for fillings, teeth that are cracked or worn down, after having root canal treatment done, or to cover a badly shaped or discolored tooth and improve your smile.

Dental crowns can be made from ceramics, metal alloys, porcelain, porcelain that’s been fused to metal, or composite resin. Whatever the material, it will likely be colored so that it blends in with the natural color of your teeth.

Tooth Extraction

In a large number of patients, a successful early treatment ensures that all permanent teeth get accommodated, and more often there is no need to extract permanent teeth at a later stage for creating space.

Broken/Chipped Teeth

Broken/chipped teeth may require specialized treatment i.e. root canal treatment. Early orthodontic treatment corrects such teeth rapidly thereby prevents permanent damage.

Bunny-Rabbit Appearance

This tremendous facial improvement is always accompanied by a wonderful personality change. Thus, there is not only a dental but also a mental advantage too. These conditions go unnoticed if you wait till 12 years of age.

What Is A Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is made with two or more dental crowns on either side of a gap made by a missing tooth, with a false tooth (or teeth) placed in between. These type of fake teeth are called pontics, and they can be made of multiple materials such as alloys, porcelain, gold, or a combination of them. The purpose of a dental bridge is just what its name implies, to bridge the gap created by a missing tooth or teeth. The bridge is supported by natural teeth or implants if that’s the case.
