Bridges and Crowns Treatment in Wakad
What is BRIDGES AND CROWNS?
Crowns are used to replace missing teeth. They can be made from gold, metal, porcelain, and white (Tooth) colored Zirconium. White crowns can greatly improve your confidence and smile.
Crowns or “caps” are traditional and commonly used restorations in dentistry today. Because the enamel has to be completely removed for a crown or “cap,” the stronger and more conservative commonly or porcelain veneer restoration is generally the treatment of choice whenever possible. However, when teeth are badly broken, extensively decayed, or simply in need of replacing existing caps, crowns are the treatment of choice. Crowns can be made of all-porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, porcelain fused to zirconium or all gold. The best crown material is often determined by an individual’s bite and aesthetic considerations.
A bridge may be recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space.
