Dental Crown

Dental Crowns or caps as some call them, are custom-made covers for teeth that have had a root canal treatment, cracked or weakened teeth or teeth that are so decayed that a regular filling isn’t sufficient.

Generally, we use a porcelain material to make the crown because it blends best with your other teeth. It takes two appointments to fit a crown.

At the first appointment, we prepare the tooth by making it small enough for the crown to fit over it. Next, we mold an impression of the tooth so that the crown fits between the teeth on either side of it and is basically the same size and shape as the one being capped. At the end of this visit, we attach a temporary crown to protect the tooth until the permanent crown is ready.

At the second visit, we cement the permanent crown and make sure that it feels comfortable and natural and that your bite is correct. That’s it!

What is a Dental Crown?

A tooth shaped ‘cap’ put over a tooth, weakened or cracked, to restore shape, size and appearance, is known as a dental crown. It adds strength to decayed teeth.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is made up of two crowns on either side of the missing tooth connected to an artificial tooth in the middle. These three ‘teeth’ form the ‘bridge’ that is matched to the color of your teeth and then cemented into place to provide a permanent solution to your missing tooth dilemma! A false tooth, generally made from porcelain is used to fill in the gaps caused from missing teeth. It is held in place by the teeth on either sides. These two crowns on either side, with the artificial tooth together form the ‘Dental Bridge’. It can be traditional, cantilever, maryland or implant-supported.

Why is a dental bridge needed?

It is a restorative process that leads to augmented bite, speech, facial symmetry. It prevents other teeth from misalignment.

What's the Procedure?

First, the doctor has to examine your mouth and the areas around the missing tooth to determine whether a dental bridge is appropriate for your situation. If you are a good candidate for a bridge, the teeth that are on either side of the missing tooth will be prepped for crowns.

An impression is taken so that the bridge will fit exactly into the space and blend perfectly with your existing teeth. The first visit ends with the insertion of a temporary bridge to protect the area until the permanent bridge is ready.

At your next and final visit, the permanent bridge is cemented into place and you’re all set! If you take care to practice good oral hygiene and maintain your proper dental cleaning and examination schedule, your new bridge should last for a good many years, providing you with a winning smile and a gigantic confidence boost!

How is a dental bridge different from dental implant?

Every 5 to 15 years, a dental bridge needs to be replaced. Improper dental hygiene would reduce the life of a bridge. An implant on the other hand is a lifelong permanent solution.
