CROWNS & BRIDGES

What is a crown and why you might require one?

A crown is a laboratory-fabricated cap that gets fitted onto your natural tooth root or in case of a missing tooth on an artificial structure also known as an implant. A crown may be needed in the following situations:

To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth

To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down

To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of natural tooth left

To provide structure and strength to a root canal treated tooth

To cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth

To cover a dental implant

To make a cosmetic modification

What is a bridge and why you might require one?

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 toward the space. This can cause:

  • Bite problems.
  • Chewing difficulties.
  • Pain from the extra stress on your teeth and jaw.

A bridge is a permanent restoration designed to fill in the space if you are missing one or more teeth.
