Restore and rejuvenate your smile back with Porcelain Dental Crowns & Bridges

If you have a tooth or several teeth that are damaged or missing, you might be curious what you can do to restore both the function and the look of your smile. Two of the ways we do this for our patients is to use dental crowns and bridgework. Let’s discuss more about what each of these procedures entail.

What are Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges?

Both crowns and almost all bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are used to restore smiles. Unlike dentures, these are permanent devices that you cannot take out and clean daily. Instead, crowns and bridges are cemented onto your existing teeth or implants and can only be removed by your dentist.

Dental Crowns

dental crown is a dental restoration that is placed over a severely damaged tooth when more conservative restorations such as porcelain veneersinlays and onlays are not sufficient to restore the proper form and function of the tooth.

Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain crowns are the most popular because of their natural look and durability. All of our porcelain crowns are handcrafted by world-class Master Dental Ceramists to provide the perfect fit and the most exceptionally natural appearance.

Porcelain crowns are capable of:

  • Repairing the original shape and size of badly broken and fractured teeth
  • Restoring teeth with large cracked fillings
  • Protecting and preserving the remaining natural tooth structure for teeth with excessive decays after root canal therapy
  • Providing an outstanding wear-resistance and durability as well as an exceptional natural appearance

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge offers a great permanent solution to replace your missing teeth and restore your facial appearance, proper function of your mouth and overall dental health.

A traditional bridge is a device that consists of two crowns placed over two adjacent neighboring teeth and an artificial tooth in between them to fill in the gap of the missing tooth.

Dental bridgework can:

  • Fill in spaces left by missing teeth to restore a patient’s chewing and speaking ability
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of their normal position allowing them to maintain a proper alignment and bite
  • Maintain your facial structure and prevent a wrinkled sunken facial appearance associated with missing teeth
  • Help prevent bone loss and gum disease
  • Be a cost effective alternative to dental implants with a faster completion time and the option to treat several teeth with one procedure

We love improving Smiles too!

Do you have damaged or missing teeth that are ruining your smile? We can help you with precision-crafted custom porcelain dental crown or bridge. Don’t let a damaged or missing tooth kill your  smile

When the size of a “filling” exceeds a certain proportion of the tooth, it must be replaced with a “cap,” also called a “dental crown.” We use porcelain crowns that look very natural and don’t have a dark metal line around the edge at the gum line. A porcelain dental crown reflects light with a natural healthy glow.

Replace old crowns and bridges with metal-free restorations. There’s a huge difference between metal fillings and new porcelain restorations that reflect the translucence of natural teeth.

If you have a tooth or several teeth that are damaged or missing, you might be curious what you can do to restore both the function and the look of your smile. Two of the ways we do this for our patients is to use dental crowns and bridgework. Let’s discuss more about what each of these procedures entail.

Dental crowns are an effective means of restoring and reshaping damaged teeth. Dental crowns are used to provide your teeth with essential protection and support.

Both crowns and almost all bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are used to restore smiles. Unlike dentures, these are permanent devices that you cannot take out and clean daily. Instead, crowns and bridges are cemented onto your existing teeth or implants. Made of natural, tooth-coloured materials, a dental bridge looks like a real tooth would. Cosmetic dental bridges are used to fill in a missing or badly decayed tooth by “bridging” the gap of the surrounding teeth. The bridge would consist of a pontic  (tooth filler) and be fitted to the two adjacent teeth or abutments surrounding the missing tooth using dental crowns.

A crown is a restorative that covers, or “caps,” to strengthened a damaged tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. Crown can be used to improve the tooth appearance, shape or alignment. Crowns are necessary when a tooth is generally broken down and fillings won’t solve the problem. If a tooth is cracked a crown holds the tooth together to seal the cracks so the damage doesn’t get worse. Crowns are also used to support large fillings when there is not enough tooth surface remaining to attach a bridge. Crowns protect weaker teeth from fracturing or restore fractured teeth and they also cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth.

Porcelain Crown Procedure

The porcelain teeth crown procedure takes place over two office visits.

  1. FIRST APPOINTMENT -PREPARATION, IMPRESSIONS, TEMPORARY

During your first visit, we will prepare your tooth, removing any decayed damaged tooth and preparing the existing tooth for the crown.

To prepare the tooth for a crown, it is reduced so the crown can fit over it . A one to two millimeter dimension all around the tooth and on top is removed to fit the crown while strengthening and preserving the remaining natural tooth structure

We will then take a precise impression or mould of the remaining tooth material, which will be used as a guide to creating your new porcelain crown.

A temporary crown is fitted over the tooth until the permanent crown in made.

This impression of your tooth will be sent to a specialty dental laboratory, where your natural looking porcelain crown will be fabricated to your exact needs.

  1. SECOND APPOINTMENT -CEMENTATION>

Once we have your finished porcelain crown from the lab, you will return to the office, where we will apply a special dental adhesive to bond your new crown to the existing tooth structure. Once permanently cured, this adhesive will create a strong, permanent bond, and your new porcelain crown will be complete and it becomes your new tooth.

All-porcelain is generally not as strong as porcelain fused to metal. It has to be bonded to the tooth in order to have adequate strength for oral function. The bonding technique is very demanding.
With porcelain fused to metal, the porcelain has to be opaque in order to block out the appearance of the metal underneath. They all also eventually develop an unsightly dark line at the margin where the edge of the crown meets the tooth.

Some of the all-ceramic systems that have an inner ceramic core with an outer layer of porcelain baked on require more tooth reduction. Grinding away more of the tooth is often not desirable.

Some of the ceramic materials that are very tough and fracture resistant are also quite abrasive against the opposing teeth. Of the crowns listed above, the Empress is the kindest to the teeth it chews against. There are several factors that need to go into the selection of a crown material: strength requirements,  aesthetic requirements, the abrasivity of the material against the opposing teeth, and the skills of the dentist.

There is not a single crown that is clearly superior for all situations. Many cosmetic dentists will have several types that they will use, each for a different situation.

When a tooth gets damaged, it requires a cap or a covering to protect it. This covering is known as a dental crown. It is a permanent cap cemented on the tooth, and it is designed such that it gives the tooth a natural appearance.

There are several reasons why a tooth may need a dental crown, and they include the following:

  1. After the root canal treatment, the tooth becomes brittle. Hence, a dentist places a crown to protect the underlying tooth and lower the risk of cracking or fracturing
  2. A discolored tooth which does not match the other teeth, a crown can be used to cover the blemish and ensure that it blends with the other teeth
  3. Sometimes a crown is used instead of a large filling.

Though crowns can be costly, they are a profitable option that reinforce strong and durable teeth. Imagine achieving back the strength and durability of your natural teeth in two dental visits. That’s worth making an investment for!

Preparing teeth for the crown requires a lot of knowledge and experience. The entire process is very delicate and requires a lot of attention to details on the part of dentist and a team. It also involves very significant expense for the laboratory fees and supplies. Given the amount of effort, it is only fair for the dental practice to charge meaningful fee for this type of service.

Some of the reasons for the high cost of dental crowns include:

  1. Time: Around 45 to 90 minutes are required for preparing the tooth which has to receive the crown.
  2. Instruments and dental materials are expensive
  3. Lab charges: Lab charges are included in the costs charged by the dentist. These charges differ according to fabrication and customization process which differs for each tooth

If you have not got your needy tooth correctly protected with a dental crown then you may face the following problems:

  1. Dental discomfort
  2. Tooth fracture
  3. Poor aesthetics

The functions served by a dental crown make it worth paying a big amount for.
