Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are classic fixed prostheses, which are cemented onto existing teeth, and can only be removed by a dentist. Sometimes, crowns and bridges are cemented or screwed onto dental implants to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function.
A crown is used to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth for strengthening weakened tooth structure. Crown can also be used to improve appearance and shape of tooth. Material of crowns includes ceramic/porcelain, gold, and metal alloys.
Bridges are 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.
