Dental Crowns And Bridges Treatment
A dental crown is commonly used to repair a tooth’s function and appearance after a root canal, a large filling or repair to a damaged tooth. Dental crowns look and feel exactly like your natural teeth, with the advantage of the added strength and maximized protection for your repair work and tooth. Dental crowns get their name because they are adhered to the top of the natural tooth.
Why do you need a dental crown?
On decaying, your teeth might need “caps.” These are nothing but dental crowns that restore the tooth’s shape, size, strength and appearance. You may need a dental crown for several reasons, including protecting weak teeth, restoring a decayed one, holding a dental bridge, covering misshapen and discoloured teeth or covering a tooth after a root canal.
Are there different types of dental crowns?
Dental Crowns help us maintain teeth that have the potential to break down due to large fillings, root canal treatment or fractures. There are many types of materials that can be used in the fabrication of crowns. After an examination, your dentist will recommend the best choice of crown to be used for your particular situation.

A dental bridge is a standard fixed prosthetic solution to replacing one or more missing teeth. When two healthy teeth remain on either side, we can utilize them as anchors to ‘bridge’ this gap to give you back the use of the tooth/teeth that are missing. Once the bridge is secured, it functions and appears just as your natural teeth do. Dental bridges get their name because they connect two sides of a gap seamlessly.
Why do you need a dental bridge?
Your teeth work together. If a tooth is missing, nearby teeth can move into the empty space. The teeth in your opposite jaw can also move up or down and toward the empty space. If not filled by bridges, these empty spaces can cause bite problems such as chewing difficulties, pain from the extra stress on your teeth and can affect the way your smile looks.
