Crowns are recommended for:

  • Root canal treated teeth
  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Cosmetic enhancement
  • Decayed teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • Large fillings


Spaces in the dentition after extraction of a tooth causes a tendency for the adjacent teeth to shift and rotate and the opposing tooth to supra erupt. This causes derangement of the bite which gives rise to temporo-mandibular disorders causing discomfort to the patient.

Therefore, missing teeth should be replaced by artificial teeth as soon as possible.

Bridge is one modality which helps restore missing teeth in a permanent manner.


Metal Crowns

  • Used for posterior crowns (back teeth)
  • Strong
  • Less removal of tooth structure for placement of cown
  • Cost effective

Porcelain fused to metal

  • Used for both anterior and posterior teeth (back and front teeth)
  • Porcelain crowns having a layer of metal inside
  • Metal gives strength and supports porcelain
  • Because of the metal layer light is not able to pass through, which makes the crown dull

All-ceramic zirconia crowns (CAD/CAM)

  • Excellent esthetics for anterior teeth
  • Absolutely natural looking
  • Made from thinner material which makes it lighter
  • Material is kind to gum tissue


Success of crowns and bridges depends on the health of the surrounding teeth and gums. Maintenance of oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing is the key to success. Mostly crowns and bridges have a ceramic outer layer or are completely made of ceramic. These materials are very strong but they still have a potential to fracture the same as a natural tooth. As a rule, don’t bite anything with a crown or bridge that could damage natural tooth.
