A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.
Why Is a Dental crown needed ?
A dental crown may be needed in the following situation……..
TYPES OF CROWNS ARE AS FOLLOWS :-
While a crowned tooth does not require any special care, remember that simply because a tooth is crowned does not mean the tooth is protected from decay or gum disease. Therefore, continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily — especially around the crown area where the gum meets the tooth — and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash at least once a day.
A dental bridge is a fixed dental procedure used to replace one or several missing teeth. A bridge restores your bite and maintains the natural shape of your face and jaw by preventing the tilt or drift of adjacent teeth into the empty space.
1.Bridges are fixed restorations that do not require periodic removal for cleaning.
2.Bridges are small and lightweight dental restorations which makes it easy for the patient to adapt to it.
3.All chewing forces are passed to the abutment teeth and not to the gums underneath. Therefore, teeth perform the
mastication function in the natural way.
4.Aesthetically superior when compared to missing teeth.
5. Only few appointments are needed to complete the procedure.
