Both crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. In contrast to removable appliances like dentures, that require an added effort to remove and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants and do not require any patient involvement. We offer crowns and bridges treatment in Mumbai.
How do Crowns Work?
A crown is employed to cover or "cap" a broken tooth entirely. Besides strengthening a fractured tooth, crowns are often customized to improve its appearance, shape, or alignment. A crown is placed on the tooth to reproduce and replicate the structure and function of the original tooth. Ceramic crowns are precisely matched to the colour of your natural teeth.
Your tooth doctor might advocate a crown to:
- Replace an oversized filling when there is not enough tooth structure remaining
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Restore a broken tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Cover an implant
- Cover a discolored or poorly formed tooth
- Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
How do Bridges Work?
A bridge is also suggested if you are missing one or a lot of teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty areas, leading to an incorrect bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth may cause gum diseases and diarthrosis (TMJ) disorders.
Bridges are usually fabricated to replace one or a lot of missing teeth. They span the area where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants — these teeth, known as abutments, function as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth, known as a pontic, is connected to the crowns that cowl the abutments. Your tooth doctor will assist you in deciding which material to use, help improve the esthetics and cover any cost-related queries you might have. Ceramic bridges are often matched to the color of your natural teeth.
How are Crowns and Bridges Made?
Before a crown or a bridge is fabricated, the tooth (or teeth) requiring a crown should be reduced in size so the crown or bridge can fit over it correctly. After completion of tooth preparation an impression is made to fabricate the customized prosthesis. Your dentist confirms the proper shade for the crown or bridge with the help of digital and manual devices to match the colour of your existing teeth.
A temporary crown or bridge is placed to protect the prepared teeth, while the permanent crown or bridge is being created. Once the permanent prosthesis is prepared, the temporary crown or bridge is removed, and the new one is cemented over your prepared tooth/teeth.
How Long do Crowns and Bridges Last?
Crowns and bridges are fabricated with CAD-CAM technology to give a precise fit to the crowns over your prepared teeth. This digitalization of fabrication of the crown minimizes chipping and micro-leakage thus enhancing longevity of the crown. All our crowns come with a free replacement guarantee so that patient can comfortably chew without the fear of losing the crown to fracture. We also advice the patient to maintain good oral hygiene to ensure longer functionality of the crown.
