Dental Crown and Bridge treatment is a long-term method of replacing missing teeth. A crown is placed on an individual tooth, (somewhat like a thimble over your finger) where there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. A bridge spans a space where one or more teeth have been lost in the dental arch. The teeth on either end of the span are crowned, and are referred to as abutments. Ceramic Crowns are used to restore the shape, strength and function of a decayed tooth.
After a tooth has had a Root Canal Treatment, the tooth has a tendency to fracture. To prevent this, the tooth is reinforced with a Crown. The most commonly used one is the Ceramic Fused to Metal crown.
The strength comes from the metal, and the natural look which matches that of the adjacent teeth comes from the Ceramic that is fused to the metal. The tooth then can be used normally for both looks and for eating.
Ceramic Bridges are used to replace teeth that have had to be removed for some unavoidable reason. In those cases where a tooth that has been previously removed and needs to be replaced, the commonest, quickest and a very efficient option is that of a Ceramic Bridge.
Dental Crowns and Bridges are types of Dental restoration which completely encircle and protect a tooth or implant. They are typically used when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth. Crowns are implanted with dental cement.
Dental crowns restore the Anatomy of the tooth, restore tooth functions and aesthetics. Dental Crowns can be used for replacement of both fixed teeth and missing teeth. Dental crowns or caps are available as Metal ceramic Crowns and the latest Zirconium Crowns.
