Crowns & Bridges
MISSING OR CROOKED TEETH?
Crowns and bridges can be used to fix broken, missing, or decayed teeth, as well as after root canals. Furthermore, they can prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position. We offer a variety of new dental materials such as,
- E-max Crowns: E-max crowns are made from lithium desilicated ceramic and are metal free. It offers superb esthetics with beautiful translucence. It’s ideal for veneers, single crowns and 3 unit anterior bridges.
- Zirconia Crowns: Zirconia is the hardest and strongest material used in dentistry. They are extremely durable and also esthetic because they don’t contain any metal in them. The zirconia core structure can be layered with porcelain to make them even more esthetic. Zirconia crowns are ideal for cases that need the extra strength.
We will choose the right type depending on the clinical indications to give you the best esthetics with best long term result.
FAQs FOR CROWNS & DENTAL BRIDGES
Crown placement is typically completed in two visits. First, we will remove a thin layer of enamel to make room for the thickness of the crown. Then we make an impression of the teeth, which is sent to a dental lab where a crown will be custom made from a strong and esthetic material. The dentist will put a temporary crown on the tooth until the second visit. At the second visit, the temporary crown will be removed and the new permanent crown will be cemented.
With today’s materials, crowns and bridges are natural looking and are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Both dental crowns and bridges will last a long time if they’re properly cared for. Good oral hygiene is needed to prevent gum disease and cavities from forming under the crown. If you want any dental work to last in the long run, brushing and flossing on a regular basis is very important.
