Crown & Bridge

Dental Crown

Dental Crown
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Dental Bridge

Dental Bridge
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns one on each tooth on either side of the gap — these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between.

Recommendation of Crown :

* Replace a large fillings when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
* Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
* Restore a fracture tooth
* Attach a bridge
* Cover a dental implant
* Cover discolored or poorly shaped tooth.
* Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
