Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns and Bridges are used to treat patients with damaged or missing teeth. The need to repair or replace teeth may arise when the teeth suffers damage or has been lost due to injury, gum disease, or excessive decay.

Crowns are used in cases where the tooth cannot be restored using dental fillings, such as the presence of large cavities, broken, cracked, chipped or discolored teeth. Crowns are also used to strengthen weak teeth, anchor bridges, replace missing teeth, or seal teeth that have been treated using root canal. Crowns are fabricated so that they resemble natural teeth and sit neatly on the problematic tooth to cover it. Our dentists fabricate crowns individually for each patient, so they provide optimal fit, appearance, bite and function.

Bridges are used as a dental prosthetic to replace missing teeth. They consist of one or more artificial teeth that are anchored onto the natural teeth that are adjacent to the missing teeth, with the help of dental crowns. Dental implants may also be used to support dental bridges in some cases. Once the dental bridges are placed you will be able to resume your speaking and mastication habits as you would with natural teeth.
