Crown and Bridges: Restoring Dental Integrity and Aesthetics

Crown and bridge restorations are valuable dental treatments that restore the strength, function, and beauty of your smile. Whether you’re dealing with a damaged tooth or missing teeth, our Dental Clinic offers expertly crafted crowns and bridges to help you regain your oral health and confidence.


The Dental Crown Procedure

  1. Tooth Preparation: The damaged portion of the tooth is carefully removed, creating space for the crown.
  2. Impression: An impression of the prepared tooth is taken to create a custom-fitted crown.
  3. Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth.
  4. Crown Placement: Once the permanent crown is ready, it’s securely bonded onto the prepared tooth, restoring its strength and aesthetics.

Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is a fixed restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth by using adjacent teeth as support.

When Are Dental Bridges Needed?

  • To replace one or more missing teeth, improving your ability to chew, speak, and smile.
  • To prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of alignment due to the gap left by missing teeth.
  • To restore facial proportions and maintain your smile’s aesthetics.

The Dental Bridge Procedure:

  1. Abutment Teeth Preparation: The teeth on either side of the gap (abutment teeth) are prepared to support the bridge.
  2. Impression: Similar to crowns, impressions are taken to create a customized bridge.
  3. Temporary Bridge: A temporary bridge is placed while the permanent bridge is being fabricated.
  4. Bridge Placement: The permanent bridge is cemented onto the abutment teeth, effectively filling the gap left by missing teeth.

Benefits of Crowns and Bridges:

  • Restored Function: Crowns and bridges improve your ability to bite, chew, and speak comfortably.
  • Aesthetics: They enhance the appearance of damaged or missing teeth, improving your smile’s overall look.
  • Preservation: Crowns protect weakened teeth from further damage, while bridges prevent remaining teeth from shifting.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a customized restoration that covers a damaged or weakened tooth. Crowns not only provide protection but also enhance the appearance of the tooth.

When Are Dental Crowns Needed?

  • To restore a severely decayed or damaged tooth that cannot be effectively restored with a filling.
  • To protect a tooth after a root canal treatment.
  • To reinforce a tooth with a large filling, preventing it from breaking.
  • To enhance the appearance of a discolored or misshapen tooth.
