A crown or a cap is actually a cover placed over your damaged or weakened tooth to bring back its natural look and prevent further deterioration. It is used when your tooth is broken, chipped, cracked, discoloured, misshapen, heavily filled or if fillings have been lost. It helps to cover the unprotected area of a tooth with a root canal treatment for replacing old filings or for cosmetic reasons. In simple words, crowns are a restorative and cosmetic method since they replace a tooth without removing the natural one.
Different types of crowns are available depending on the need of the individual that will wear it. Our dentist will suggest the best option based on the location of the crown. They may recommend a resin, ceramic or gold crowns. Our dental surgeon will use his expertise and modern technology to try and match the new crown with the shape of your present teeth and their colour.
Crowns are used the patients who suffer from the following dental concerns:
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth used to restore the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They are connected by crowning the teeth on either side of the gap and attaching a false tooth in the middle. The three types of bridges are – traditional, cantilever and Maryland-bonded. They are the perfect choice for people who are missing one or two teeth and do not want a denture. Bridges help to get back the lost smile with natural-looking restorative teeth on both sides of the gap.
Our dental surgeon will take X-rays and impressions of the affected area that require a bridge. He will also take photographs to plan out bridge restoration for you. Depending on the number of consecutive teeth that you are missing, your bridge may be three or more units, two crowns attached to the teeth on either side of the space known as abutments and one or more artificial teeth called pontics, for filling any empty spaces. He will create a customised bridge for your mouth that will function and look just like your natural teeth. Besides that, our dentist may also take extra impressions after he makes abutment teeth ready for the bridge.
