Crowns and bridges are an optimal way to repair broken or weakened teeth by a result of tooth decay or a very big filling.
Both crowns and most bridges are fixed instruments of prosthesis. In comparison to removable instruments such as dentures that can be removed and cleaned daily, crowns and bridges are cemented on current teeth or implants and can be removed only by a dentist.
A dental crown is an artificial restoration that fits over a prepared tooth’s remaining portion, making it strong and offering it a natural tooth shape. Sometimes a crown is known as a 'cap.’
In addition to root canals and wisdom tooth extractions, dental crowns are often needed .
There are several types of dental crowns that are used for solving the problems of teeth and surgeons will recommend according to suitability and the patient's desire.
At Hermosa Clinique we provide:
Porcelain Crown -
Porcelain crowns easily mix and tie with the precise colour of your teeth and are also most valued as compared to the other materials. They are also known to be well-suited to the human body, in terms of being harmless.
Ceramic Crown - This kind of crown is usually used to repair front teeth. They are widespread in all parts of the world because they become an easy match of the natural colour of your teeth. Ceramic crowns are made with the porcelain-based material and are not as durable as metal crowns.
Metal Crown - Although metal crowns are thinner than porcelain crowns yet they can better endure chewing activities. They are also easier to fix on a tooth because less material is required to be removed from teeth for its placement.
Combination Crowns - The last type of dental crowns is a combination of porcelain bonded with metal crowns. This is the best form of the dental crown because it maintains the beauty of the porcelain and still utilizes the strength of the metal crown. Tooth loss has a great impact on personal appearance and dental health.
Missing teeth can be replaced by a bridge, which consists of one or more replacement teeth anchored by crowns on either side.
A bridge can be recommended if one or more teeth are missing.
