Crowns and Bridges
Dental Crowns and bridges:
classic dental In dentistry, Crowns and Bridges are two restorative techniques that repair damaged or missing teeth. The procedure refers to the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed or lost. The benefits of crown & bridge are they restore tooth function and appearance. Crowns and bridges can correct missing teeth, bite dysfunction, and functional or structural problems.

Crowns, also known as caps, are custom made to match over your whole enamel after the cosmetic dentist has organized it. they may be usually created from acrylic or porcelain that has been fused to metal to resist biting strain. Crowns may be utilized in cosmetic dentistry to treat teeth which can be poorly formed, badly decayed, broken, chipped, have had large fillings, or to cowl areas in between tooth.

Crown and Bridges can improve the esthetic appearance of the teeth. These restorations are cemented onto the teeth and are referred to as "fixed" dentistry rather than using a removable appliance or partial denture.
How are crowns and bridges done
Tooth structure is removed around the damaged tooth to allow space for the porcelain. An impression is then made of the prepared tooth, which our dental laboratory technicians use to custom build your crown. While the technicians are perfecting your crown, you will wear a temporary crown made of acrylic to protect your tooth. The crown is shaped to look and feel natural, then is attached with a special dental cement.

It is possible that a darker line will appear at the edge of the crown, near the gum, as it recedes with age.
Captek (The Crown with Gold lining)
