Dental crowns are made of porcelain or metal and are used to save a tooth and strengthen it. It is placed on the tooth like a cap and is helpful in restoring function and aesthetics. Few instances where crowns are used:
- Tooth decay
- Large fillings
- Trauma such as a fall
- After root canal treatment
- Age related wear and tear
Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth and typically consists of an artificial crown anchored to the adjacent natural teeth. A bridge is also made of porcelain and gives a very natural option for missing teeth. Alternatively, you may discuss with our dentists the option of dental implants.
