Dental Crowns & Bridges
We are pleased to offer a variety of Restorative Dentistry Services to our patients.
A crown is an aesthetic covering or a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over another tooth or implant to provide it stability. Crowns are generally used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. When a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth, a crown is a good option. Crowns are also used to restore the shape and size of chipped or damaged teeth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement.
We offer a wide variety in dental crowns and ensure you receive the best possible dental care from the minute you walk through our doors.
When is a dental crown required?
You might need a crown for any of the following circumstances:
- To cover discolored or misshapen teeth
- To support a tooth with a large filling
- To cover a dental implant
- To support a worn out, cracked or broken tooth
There are several types of Dental Crowns to choose from
In our office we offer several options of different materials for Dental Crowns. We offer porcelain, gold and semi-precious, Lava and Bruxir crowns, and Zirconia crown materials.
Video: Crowns & Bridgework
Dental bridges are false permanent teeth that are used for filling dental gaps caused by missing teeth. They are usually anchored to the adjacent healthy teeth with cement and resin or metal bands. There are three types of dental bridges – fixed, cantilever, and resin bonded. The quality of the teeth, position of the dental gap, and condition of the teeth at the two sides of the gap decide which type of dental bridge is suitable to replace the missing teeth.
Different types of dental bridges are available in a wide budget range. As it is a safe way to substitute replacement tooth for a better denture profile, convenience, appropriateness, and proper fittings are essential pre-requisites for quality bridge fitting. The cost of dental bridges may therefore vary depending on the material, position of the bridge placement, etc.
