Crown and Bridge

CROWN is a tooth-shaped "cap" that's placed over a weak or damaged tooth to improve its shape, size, strength, or appearance. Most crowns last five to 15 years and can be made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, resin, or ceramic. Before a crown is seated, the existing tooth is filed down; then the crown is cemented over it, fully encasing the tooth. Onlays and three-quarter crowns cover the underlying tooth to a lesser extent

Benefits of Dental Crown

  1. Protect a weak tooth from decay/breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth.
  2. Restore a broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  3. Cover and support a tooth with a large filling
  4. Hold a dental bridge in place
  5. Cover misshapened or discolored teeth
  6. Cover a dental implant
  7. For cosmetic improvement

Dental Crowns can be made of stainless steel, full metal (such as gold or another alloy), porcelain-fused-to-metal, full resin, or full ceramic.

  • Metals crowns uses gold alloy, other alloys (for example, palladium), or a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium). 
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns can be color matched to your adjacent teeth (unlike the metallic crowns). 
  • Full-ceramic or Zirconia dental crowns provide better natural color match than any other crown type and may be more suitable for people with metal allergies. 
  • Temporary versus permanent. Temporary crowns can be made in your dentist's office, whereas permanent crowns are made in a dental laboratory. Temporary crowns are made of acrylic or stainless steel and can be used as a temporary restoration until a permanent crown is constructed by a lab.


DENTAL BRIDGE is often the first choice for restoration of one or more missing teeth. It is cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty gap created by the missing teeth. Dental Bridges are convenient and improve one’s cosmetic appearance. It also can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech.

Other types of dental bridge are CANTILEVER BRIDGE and MARYLAND BRIDGE. In areas of your mouth that are under less stress, a cantilever bridge may be used. Cantilever bridges are also used when there are teeth on only one side of the open space. Maryland bonded bridges have porcelain teeth supported by a framework.

As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Our dentist will recommend you which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
