Porcelain Crowns & Bridge

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re–establish its original function and to create a natural appearance. Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth, when a traumatic event has caused damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. Dental crowns are a way to strengthen teeth and method by which the cosmetic appearance of teeth can be improved.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridge is very useful when replacing a tooth or a couple of teeth that are no longer viable. Dental bridge can be sculpted to replicate the look of natural tooth enamel and using this durable material gives your bridge a strong base to rely upon.

Types Of Dental Bridges

  1. TRADITIONAL DENTAL BRIDGES
    Traditional bridges are the most popular kind of bridge. These bridges consist of one or more pontics (fake teeth) and are held in place by dental crowns. These dental crowns are also called abutments, and they are cemented onto the teeth adjacent to your missing tooth.
  2. CANTILEVER BRIDGES
    Cantilever bridges are another option for replacing missing teeth. They are very similar to traditional bridges, but the pontic is supported by an abutment on only one side, rather than on both sides. So if there’s only one natural tooth next to the gap, a bridge can still be secured.
  3. MARYLAND BRIDGES
    Marlyland bridges also called a resin-bonded bridges or a Maryland bonded bridges. These bridges consist of a pontic that is held in place by a metal or porcelain framework. This framework is bonded onto the backs of the two teeth adjacent to the missing tooth.
