Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
A Dental crown, also known as “cap” is a hollow, artificial tooth used to cover and fit over tooth. Dental crowns can be made of metals such as gold or Zirconia, ceramic, porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal. You may need a crown if you have a root canal, a large filling in a tooth, broken tooth or a tooth with large decay. The crown restores the tooth and protects it from further damage. Crowns can also be used to cover a discoloured or misshapen tooth. A tooth that has been fixed with a crown looks and works very much like a natural tooth. With careful maintenance and proper oral hygiene crowns can last for long period of time.
A bridge, also called a “fixed bridge” or a “fixed dental prosthesis”, is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth. It extends across an area that has no teeth and is typically made up of an artificial tooth fused between 2 crowns. (A crown is a hollow, artificial tooth that fits over a natural tooth or a dental implant). The bridge is held firmly in place by your own teeth or by dental implants on each side of the missing one(s).
