Crowns & Bridges

A crown is used when the visible structure of your tooth is fractured or damaged. A bridge helps to replace one or two missing teeth in a row.

Crowns can be described as a replacement tooth structure to cover and strengthen your damaged teeth. It is generally made of porcelain or ceramic and can be customized to match the natural color of your teeth. It helps in improving the strength of the damaged teeth and also enhances their natural appearance.

  • That patient had large fillings, which has left the teeth weak and vulnerable to breakage.
  • The patient is suffering from severe dental decay.
  • Missing tooth due to an accident, aging, or extraction.
