Restorative Excellence: Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and bridges are dental prosthetic devices used to restore damaged or missing teeth. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a damaged tooth to improve its strength, size, shape, and appearance. Bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants.

A healthy smile is the best accessory you can wear.

Procedure :

  1. Initial Consultation: The dentist assesses the patient’s oral health, discusses treatment options, and determines the need for crowns or bridges.
  2. Preparation: The affected tooth or teeth are prepared by reshaping them to accommodate the crown or bridge.
  3. Impressions: Impressions of the prepared teeth are taken to ensure accurate fabrication of the crowns or bridges.
  4. Temporary Restoration: Temporary crowns or bridges may be placed while the permanent ones are being fabricated in the dental laboratory.
  5. Final Fitting: Once the permanent crowns or bridges are ready, they are fitted and adjusted for proper fit and bite.
  6. Bonding: Crowns are permanently bonded to the prepared teeth using dental cement, while bridges are anchored to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
  7. Final Adjustments: Any necessary adjustments are made to ensure comfort, functionality, and aesthetic harmony.
  8. Follow-up Care: Patients are advised on proper oral hygiene practices and scheduled for regular check-ups to maintain the longevity of the crowns and bridges.

The use of crowns and bridges is indispensable in modern dentistry for restoring both the function and appearance of damaged or missing teeth. Whether it’s repairing a fractured tooth with a crown or replacing missing teeth with a bridge, these restorative treatments not only enhance oral health but also contribute significantly to a person’s confidence and quality of life by restoring their ability to chew, speak, and smile with ease.
