Crowns And Bridges
A crown or a bridge is a prosthesis that is placed over a tooth and held in place by dental cements to treat problems of decay, fractured teeth, as well as to protect teeth which have undergone root canal treatment or large fillings.
REASONS FOR CROWNS OR BRIDGES
Bridges are planned when one or more teeth are missing and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open space.
A normal process for a full crown restoration needs 2-3 appointments. Although the majority of crown treatments are completed in two visits, there is sometimes a need for a third visit to ensure that it is properly fit.
Types of Crowns & Bridges
These Are One Of The First Bridges To Be Used In Dentistry. They Are Still Used, But Only For The Back Teeth Where Aesthetics Do Not Matter As Much. They Provide Great Stability And Durability.
Porcelain Fused To Metal
Porcelain Fused To Metal Bridges Are Aesthetically Superior To All Metal Bridges. These Bridges Have A Layer Of Porcelain On Top Of The Metal Bridge. The Layer Is Shade Matched With Your Teeth.
All Ceramic Bridges Remove The Metal Element From Porcelain Fused To Metal Bridges And Therefore Give Superior Aesthetics.
The Material Combines Ceramic’s Aesthetics And Metal’s Strength. Zirconia Is Also Very Bio-compatible And Has No Adverse Reactions To Being Placed In Your Mouth.
Let’s take a closer look.
An All-ceramic Bridge (Or Porcelain With Ceramic Substrate) Is The Most Aesthetically Pleasing Among All The Bridges. There Is 100% No Metal, So Translucency Is Usually Excellent (Depending On The Type Of Materials Used For The All-ceramic Bridge). It Gives The Exact Replica Of Natural Tooth.
These Bridges Are Usually Indicated On Front Teeth Or Teeth That Are Highly Visible. We Use Only The Best Materials (A Combination Of Beauty, Biocompatibility, And Strength) For Our All-ceramic Bridges.
