Dental care, with advances in science and technology, has outgrown the conventional treatment styles and can now provide the most elicit and precise procedures for each patient alike. At our center, our dentists offer consultation and recommend a surgery or procedure, based on the analysis. If you have a case of damaged tooth but haven’t lost the tooth completely then our team of dental experts would suggest a dental crown, in case of an individual tooth and a bridging type, in case of a loss of two or more teeth, to ensure a fuller mouth and good oral hygiene.
Both, crowns and most of the bridges, are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist.
Why do you need a dental crown?
As the word crown suggests, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth, to protect it from further damage and to help the tooth in restoring its strength, size and appearance. They often come in the picture, when excessive cavity in even a single tooth, threatens to disrupt the oral hygiene and compromise the health of other teeth.

Here are a few reasons why dental crowns may become an immediate necessity:
To cover a large-filling tooth and to support it, in case of a partial or very meager tooth remaining.
To restore a broken tooth if it has severe worn down.
Crown helps to hold a dental bridge in place.
To help cover a severely discolored tooth and avoid misshaping of further kind.
To create a cosmetic modification or even cover an existing dental implants.
Dental crowns also help in protecting a weak tooth from breaking, to ensure that the tooth can be held together and broken parts still stay intact. With the help of dental crowns, further damage or breakage in a tooth can be very well achieved.

Bridges: As the name suggests, dental bridges are made up of two or more crowns, to bridge the gap between the missing teeth in a mouth. These false teeth can be made from various alloys of metals or even using gold and are referred to as pontics. Dental bridges gain their support, once they are placed, with the help of the natural teeth in once mouth.
Here are some of the benefits that dental bridges can offer:
Withhold teeth from drifting out of their original position
Allow the patient to chew, speak and carry out day-to-day activities smoothly
Restore the patient’s smile and enhance facial structure
Replaces missing teeth and helps distribute the force of a bite.
There are typically three types of dental bridges: the traditional bridge, cantilever bridge and the Maryland bonded bridge. Often the bridges last up to 15 years or longer based on good oral hygiene and regular checkups and updates.
