Crowns and Bridges

CROWNS

A crown is a custom made dental restoration, which protects the underlying tooth. It simulates the external anatomy of natural teeth. Crowns are typically made of porcelain, however, to give the crown more strength, the core can be made with other materials, traditionally gold alloy and more recently alumina or zirconia.

In cases of great loss of tooth structure, such as large cavities or trauma, the retention of a porcelain veneer or a filling would be very difficult, therefore crowns are used. They are also used in cases of endodontically treated teeth, to give strength to the entire tooth and avoid fractures. Today ceramic crowns are demanded more and more because of the high aesthetic and durability they provide, combining the beauty of porcelain and metal resistance.
You may need a crown in cases of:
•Extensive tooth decay
•Large fillings weakening the remaining tooth
•Broken or cracked teeth
•A tooth that has had root canal therapy
•A misaligned or misshaped tooth
•Fillings that are breaking down and cannot be refilled

IMPLANT RETAINED CROWNS

Dental implants are artificial roots, which can help resolve aesthetic, masticatory and phonetic problems caused by the loss of natural teeth, and this in the most conservative possible manner.
Titanium is not only a very biocompatible material, but also presents a capacity for living bone to integrate itself closely to the implant’s surface.

Dental implants allow you to chew with total comfort, smile and talk with the same confidence as with your own teeth.
