Crown And Bridges




Crowns are used to cover teeth that are weakened by decay, severely damaged, chipped or discolored. Crowns cover, protect, seal and strengthen the existing tooth. We recommend crown is needed when a filling of tooth just will not work. Crowns are frequently on teeth required after root canal therapy on molars on premolars to protect them from fracture

These crowns can be metal containing gold alloy, other alloys (for example, palladium), or a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium) or metal-free fused with ceramic or zirconium, these type of crowns are used for people with metal allergies. Whereas the 3M LAVA metals crowns with new dental work provides strength and avoid the stains on teeth.


There Are Many Situations That May Call For A Crowning Of Teeth:


  • » Large decay. If a tooth has decay so deep and large that a filling will not stay, or if the tooth structure is weakened, a crown must be placed on the tooth to save it.
  • » Large decay. If a tooth has decay so deep and large that a filling will not stay, or if the tooth structure is weakened, a crown must be placed on the tooth to save it.
  • » Cracked tooth. When a tooth is cracked, a filling will not seal the crack. A crown has to be placed over the tooth to hold it and the crack together. If a crown is not placed on the tooth, the tooth will become sensitive to chewing pressure, or will eventually break. It is important to crown a cracked tooth before it breaks, because in some cases a broken tooth cannot be crowned and must be extracted.
  • » Broken / Fractured tooth. A tooth that has broken is usually too weak to hold a filling. A crown will hold the tooth together and prevent it from breaking again. If the fracture involves the nerve, Root Canal Therapy may be required before the tooth is crowned. In some cases, a broken tooth cannot be saved and must be extracted.

  • » Root Canal Therapy. A tooth that has undergone Root Canal Therapy will need a crown to properly seal and protect the tooth. A tooth with Root Canal Therapy is more brittle than a tooth with a healthy nerve and blood supply. A crown provides the necessary support to the tooth.

A Permanent Bridge Replaces One Or More Missing Teeth:


The loss or absence of a teeth or tooth can be congenital or early removal of deciduous teeth and also due to removal of grossly decayed teeth.


  • » Keep teeth from drifting into the space created from a missing tooth
  • » Help preserve normal function and normal bite for the jaw joint

A Permanent Bridge is usually anchored to the teeth on both sides of the space from the missing tooth. This gives the bridge strong support. Brushing a bridge is no different than brushing natural teeth, but special flossing instructions are given to keep the bridge and surrounding tissue healthy. We make your oral health best.

Chewing and general health can be affected. The appearance of the front teeth and the smile can deteriorate. Teeth adjacent to spaces may drift and tilt into them. Teeth in the opposite jaw, over the space, can grow longer because there is no opposite tooth to bite against, and keep it in place. The bite can be affected, and the front teeth can be forced forward.
