Dental Crowns

Crowns are a hard thin layer of Porcelain or Zirconia** or both (
no metal or cheap material is used in our office ). A thin layer
of tooth ( 1-1.5 mm ) is removed, and is replaced by a hard
Porcelain or Zirconia. Crowns can be solid or translucent to
reflect light to mimic the adjacent natural teeth. Crowns are
normally used when a tooth has:

A) Crowns are used for large ( 2-3 surfaces ) cavity.

B) Crowns are used when a fractured / broken tooth needs to
be protected.

C) Crowns are used to protect root canal teeth.

D) Crowns are used to reshape and straighten a tooth for
cosmetic reasons.

E) Crowns are used to change the color or shade of the
tooth for cosmetic reasons.

** Zirconia is the material used to make fake diamonds from; it is
extremely hard that never breaks or fractures. Zirconia comes in
different shades ( white to yellow ) to mimic the natural tooth
color.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that is used to
replace one or more missing tooth ( specially if bone quantity is
not good enough for Implant ). There has to exist teeth on both
sides of the missing tooth/teeth. Bridges look like your natural
teeth. Bridges can cover ( replace ) the missing tooth by either
connecting two or more natural teeth; or two Implant teeth.
Bridges can be solid or translucent to reflect light to mimic the
adjacent natural teeth.
