A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
Dental bridges bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. These two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth and have the false tooth or teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
We also offer a variety of other high-quality restorations, including:
When there is not enough tooth structure left or the chewing demands in the mouth are too great for laminates, a stronger, more extensive restoration is needed. Here we need a porcelain jacket crown. Porcelain jackets are pure porcelain crowns placed on a fully prepared tooth. They are the most life-like of all full crown type restorations.
The technique initially consists of preparing the teeth. Next, an impression is taken and then sent to the dental lab where the porcelain jacket is fabricated. Finally, they are placed in the patient’s mouth and permanently cemented onto the teeth.
Porcelain fused to metal dental crowns is one of dentistry's primary restorations of choice because, when properly constructed and seated, they are strong, reliable and esthetic and a good choice for either front or back teeth. These crowns are strong enough to withstand heavy biting force, and at the same time can have an excellent cosmetic appearance.
Made of a gold alloy, these crowns are ideal for the back teeth. Less tooth structure needs to be removed with gold crowns as they wear less easily than ceramic ones. Gold crowns rarely chip and can endure heavy pressure biting and chewing. The color remains its main disadvantage, making gold crowns the desirable choice for back teeth.
