Prosthodontics

Fixed prosthodontics can be used to restore single or multiple teeth, spanning areas where teeth have been lost.

A crown is a type of dental procedure which completely covers or encircles a single or several teeth.
Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.

A dental crown may also be needed in the following situations:

  1. To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  2. To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  3. To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
  4. To hold a dental bridge in place
  5. To cover damaged or severely discolored teeth
  6. To cover a dental implant
  7. To make a cosmetic modification

As new technology and material science have evolved, crown and bridge fabrication results are becoming more aesthetically satisfactory.

 

All ceramic crowns and bridges can ensure a winning final smile.

 

Dental bridges are false teeth, known as pontics, which are fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in areas left by missing teeth. Two crowns hold it in place, these are attached to adjacent sides of the
false tooth.

This is known as a fixed bridge. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out in the same way that partial dentures can.


Bridges can reduce the risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech.


Bridges require commitment to serious oral hygiene, but may last up to ten years or more.
