Home > Dental Services > Dental crowns and bridges

Dental crowns and most of the bridges are fixed prosthetic devices.

Dental crowns and bridges are cemented on the existing natural or artificial teeth and can be removed only by the dentist.

The dental crown is used to completely cover a damaged tooth. In addition to supporting the tooth, the crown also fulfills an aesthetic function and corrects the shape and the evenness of the tooth. The dental crown can be attached to a dental implant, giving it the shape and functional structure of a natural tooth. The colour of the dental crowns can be chosen in order to fit the natural colour of the teeth.

1873: The American John B. Beers submitted a patent for the first golden dental crown. The crown is a replacement which covers the entire surface of the tooth.

 

You will need around two or three sessions for a dental crown to be applied.

The operations of preparing the teeth and impression are performed during the first treatment session.

The tooth is prepared by a dentist through polishing, then the area in question is impressed and the colour is decided, all the information is then sent to the dental laboratory.

 

The dental technician builds a crown which will perfectly fit the tooth that was previously prepared.

 

The crown is then tested and the dentist inserts the final product on the tooth with the help of special adhesives.

When several missing teeth need restoration, a bridge type of appliance will be needed.

This is usually called “covering two teeth and inserting ‘n’ teeth which are missing”.

The dental bridges are generally used to substitute one or several missing teeth. The bridges cover the space created by the lost teeth. The bridges are cemented on the natural teeth or on the implants.

These supporting teeth are called posts and are used to anchor the bridge.

An artificial tooth is attached to the crowns which cover the stumps. Similar to the crowns, the bridges can be made of different materials. The dentist will help you choose the material taking into consideration the place of the edentation, the position of the teeth you want to replace, the aspect and the costs involved. The colour of the composite material or porcelain can be chosen in order to match the colour of the natural teeth.

A dental appliance can have several support points (several covered teeth) which gives it an increased mechanical resistance.
