Restore and improve your smile with dental crowns and bridges.
Crowns and bridges are a fixed solution to missing or damaged teeth. This restorative procedure uses prosthetic devices to return your smile to its natural state. A crown is used when the tooth structure is damaged or fractured. A bridge is used when one or more teeth are missing.
The Dental Roots is a multispeciallity dental clinic which offers a wide variety of crowns and bridges. We ensure personal care and provide a detailed treatment plan for each of our patients.
PORCELAIN FUSED TO METAL (PFM) CROWNS – Porcelain fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are widely used type of dental crowns. They provide great aesthetics and durability. They are less costly than all porcelain crowns.
ZIRCONIA CROWNS – Zirconium is a relatively new material that combines the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain crowns. High translucent zirconia and layered zirconia crowns have become a more popular choice lately. They provide great aesthetics and are long-lasting.
PORCELAIN CROWNS – These are the most popular type of crowns used nowadays. Porcelain or ceramic crowns provide the best and most natural look. They match your surrounding teeth in shape, size, and color.
E-MAX CROWNS – The newest type of crown in dentistry today is known as E -Max. It is a type of all-ceramic crown made of lithium disilicate (which is also light and thin). They provide great aesthetics and durability.
GOLD CROWNS – Gold crowns are in fact a combination of copper and other metals, such as nickel or chromium. The main advantage of gold crowns is their strength and durability.
While crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, they do sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your crown is to practice good oral hygiene:
Life of your Crown and Bridge depends on the effectiveness and regularity of your dental hygiene. As a general rule, they last between 7-15 years but longer periods are certainly possible with outstanding oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups.
The name bridges is quiet self-explanatory. A dental bridge bridges the gap which is created by one or many missing teeth. These bridges constitute two or more crowns for the teeth and are supported by either natural teeth or by implants. A bridge enables you to reinstate your chewing ability and also helps in improving aesthetics hampered by damaged or missing teeth.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped implement made of porcelain and is placed over a tooth to cover it and restore its shape, size, strength, and improve it’s appearance enhancing the smile. A Crown is a very good option if you have broken or discoloured teeth and can be used to cover dental fillings (inlays) as well as dental implants. A crown is also mandatory after the root canal treatment.
