CROWN

A crown is an artificial cove or cup made of metal (gold or alloys), metal fused to porcelain or full porcelains. They fit on the outer or inner surface of prepared crown and will be similar in shape, color, size & function as a natural tooth.

Indications of crown are included but not limited to the followings:

  • The outside of each tooth is made of enamel, which is extremely hard, however trauma, such as a fall may chip or break them
  • Tooth decay may also severely weaken a tooth
  • Root canal treatment can also weaken a tooth
  • Teeth may also wear down over time.

A crown in many situations is the best way to save and strengthen a tooth. A crown fits over the existing natural tooth crown.


BRIDGES

Bridges are prosthesis that replaces one or more missing teeth with artificial teeth (pontics) that will be fixed on the prepared crown surface of adjacent crown (abutments) to the missing tooth or teeth. The bridge may be attached on one side or both to natural or implant crown (cantilever bridge).
