What are Dental crowns?
Dental crowns or dental caps are custom-made tooth covers that fit over the top of your natural tooth which has undergone RCT (root canal) leaving very little tooth structure, or for covering the cracked or weakened teeth in cases where a regular filling is not sufficient. Its main purpose is to protect your teeth from fracture, helping to strengthen the affected teeth and to avoid further damage.
In some cases crowns can serve as fillings, protecting a weak tooth from breaking, and may also be used to cover stained or misshapen teeth. They are designed to improve the functionality and appearance of one or several teeth. Dental crowns can be used to replace a large filling, help prevent damage such as cracking to a weakened tooth and even cover or hide a misshapen, discolored, or worn-down tooth.
What are the best dental crowns?
These are the dental crowns that are the most life-like and aesthetically pleasing. They are very popular for the front and back teeth and they reduce temperature sensitivity over metal-type crowns. Much like gold, they are non-reactive for patients with metal sensitivities and keep your gums looking healthy.
Two types of porcelain crowns are used in dentistry, e.Max and zirconia. These crowns are greatly esthetic and bond to tooth structure when cemented. They match your surrounding teeth in shape, size, and color. The best option for front teeth restorations. They are biocompatible: that means no metal is used, so they are toxic-free. They are the safest dental crowns available so far.
Zirconia is currently the strongest porcelain used in dentistry and has been made to look more esthetic than before. Although extremely strong, the bond tends to be less than that of e.Max. The downside of all porcelains is that they tend to fracture easier than other materials, they can be damaging to opposing teeth, and more tooth structure has to be removed for the procedure. These crowns typically last 5-10 years.
What are Dental bridges?
A dental bridge is usually made up of a man-made filler tooth known as a pontic, held in place by two surrounding crowns which form an abutment. Once completed, the assembly is cemented permanently into place. Dental bridges are often a great way to fill in a large gap created by one or more missing teeth. They look natural and provide a solid foundation to help you chew and speak clearly.
What’s the procedure to get crowns and Bridges?
The Dental Crown and Bridge or tooth cap is a custom-made cover for teeth usually made up of porcelain material as it blends perfectly with your natural teeth. It takes two appointments to fit a crown.
At the first appointment, Our Dentist prepares the tooth by making it small enough for receiving the crown over the top of it. Next, we mold an impression of the tooth so that the crown fits between the teeth on either side of it and is the same size and shape as the one being capped. At the end of this visit, we attach a temporary crown to protect the tooth until the permanent crown is ready.
On the second visit, we cement the permanent crown and make sure that it feels comfortable and natural and that your bite is correct. That’s it!
All you need is to take good care of your new bridge and maintain good oral hygiene to make these bridges more durable and your smile everlasting.
