Crowns and Bridges
Treatment in Surat

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.

Dental Onlays turns out to be a minimally invasive and durable option compared to full coverage crowns for covering the cracked or weakened teeth in cases of large decay where a regular filling is not sufficient. Such modern restorations are extremely conservative, preserve healthy tooth structure, cosmetically favourable and can set your damaged tooth up for years of health. Its main purpose is to protect your teeth from fracture, helping to strengthen the affected teeth and to avoid further damage. Actually it's sensible to choose partial coverage restorations over full coverage crowns.

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. Dental bridges are often the least expensive way to fill in a large gap created by one or more missing teeth as compared to dental implants. They look natural and provide a solid foundation to help you chew and speak clearly. Overall, while dental bridges can be a good option in certain situations, dental implants offer many advantages that make them a superior choice for most patients.

If you're considering dental restoration options, I would highly recommend discussing the benefits of each with your dentist to see if they are a good fit for your individual needs and situation. As an expert, at Nxtdent, we can accurately help you to determine what course of treatment is a good fit.


Lithium-Disilicate versus Zirconia - which is better?

Overall, metal-free dental restorations offer a safer, durable, more conservative, and highly aesthetic alternative to traditional restorative techniques making them a top choice for many patients. Here are some differences between the two:

  • Material: Zirconia is a type of ceramic that is incredibly strong and durable, while eMax is a type of glass ceramic that is known for its aesthetic properties.
  • Strength: Zirconia is much stronger than eMax, making it ideal for use in the posterior teeth where the bite force is higher. Emax, on the other hand, is more brittle and may be more suitable for use in the front teeth.
  • Aesthetics: While both materials can provide good aesthetics, eMax has a more natural translucency and colour matching properties that can make it a better choice for front teeth. Emax crowns are preferred by those who are looking for real smiles. Zirconia though has a natural look but performs better when they are used to hide discolorations.
  • Preparation: Both types of crowns require tooth preparation, but eMax can be milled using CAD/CAM technology, which can minimise the amount of tooth reduction required. In addition to its inherent material properties, zirconia do require a greater thickness and a slightly more aggressive tooth reduction for material stability, while Emax ceramic glass allows for more conservative tooth preparation.

Ultimately, the choice between zirconia and eMax crowns will depend on the individual patient's needs and preferences, as well as the dentist's recommendation based on the location of the tooth being restored, the amount of tooth reduction required, and the desired aesthetics. These crowns typically last up to 10 years. In addition to the materials used, your eating habits affect the lifespan of the restoration.
