Crowns

Crowns are recommended for:

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

Bridges

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.

TYPES OF CROWNS AND BRIDGES

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

CARE FOR CROWN AND BRIDGES

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.
