Crowns and Bridges

Our Services

Crowns and Bridges

A dental crown is principally a type of restoration wherein a tooth-shaped cap is placed over the affected tooth. After shaping the affected tooth appropriately, it is used as an abutment for the crown to be cemented over it to restore the form and function of the tooth.

Crowns

When a tooth has considerable decay or has been massively restored, a crown may be recommended to cap or cover the damaged tooth. It not only strengthens the damaged tooth, but can also improve its shape, alignment, and appearance. A crown can made of zirconium, ceramics, gold or other metal alloys, or a combination of these. Crowns may be recommended by your dentist in the following circumstances as well:

✓ To cap over a tooth with extensive/ multiple restorations

✓ To safeguard a cracked tooth at risk of getting fractured

✓ To restore a person’s fractured tooth

✓ To restore a poor-shaped or discolored tooth

✓ To reinforce a tooth with root canal treatment

Inserting a Bridge

Bridges

When you have one or several missing teeth, a bridge may be recommended. A bridge replaces the missing teeth between the existing natural teeth, using the natural teeth as abutments after shaping them like that for a crown. A bridge may be an alternative to implants and dentures in tooth replacement therapy.

Both bridges and dental crowns are fixed prosthodontic procedures. This means that unlike dentures and other removable prostheses, bridges and crowns are cemented to the existing teeth/ implants. These can be only removed by a dentist.

The ORAL Concept

Options and Optimization

For our patients, we discuss treatment options and the clinical approach to be taken for their treatment needs, before finalizing their treatment plan. We practice the philosophy of optimal dentistry, which we believe will benefit our patients for the long term.

Restoration

We are committed to restoring periodontal health as well as restoring the form and function of teeth for our patients. Very often it will require a multi-pronged approach. These include the control of caries, periodontal disease and root canal infections, as well as the reinforcement and replacement of teeth.

Aesthetics

Much consideration goes into the aesthetic outcome of the restorations. Often, it’s not only about the tooth and nothing but the tooth, you’ll be amazed how the appearance of the teeth can have a huge impact on facial aesthetics.

Longevity

We strive to maintain your oral health and aim to save as many of your teeth and have your restorations serve you for a long time to come. The goal of professional dental care is so that you as a patient can derive overall holistic health for life as a result of good oral hygiene and healthy masticatory function. Oral health maintenance should be done via regular dental checks biannually and any disease patterns can be detected early.
