Crowns & Bridges

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth -- to cover the tooth that is broken, cracked, or decayed to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.

A dental bridge uses a false tooth that is attached to one or more crowns on either side to securely replace a missing tooth or gap in the smile.

  • What

    Crown : it is used to entirely cover or cap a weakened tooth to reinforce its strength and help restore the normal functioning of the tooth.

    Indications for placing a crown are as follows:

    - Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining

    - Protect a weak tooth from fracturing

    - Restore a fractured tooth

    - Attach a bridge

    - Cover a dental implant

    - Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth

    - Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

    Bridges : Bridges, as the name suggests, bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They cover the space where the teeth are missing and are cemented to natural teeth or implants by one or more crowns.

    Both crowns and bridges are made from similar materials, they only differ in the number of units.

  • After Care

    While crowns and bridges can last many years, they do sometimes become loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your crown is to practice good oral hygiene. Keep your gums and teeth healthy by brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily, because your gums and teeth are the foundation of your crowns and bridge, and their health is crucial in maintaining them. See your dentist regularly for checkups and professional cleanings.
