Dental Bridges and Crown Treatment in Bangalore

Dental Bridges and Crowns

Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic prostheses that a dentist or prosthodontist cements onto natural teeth or dental implants. Most frequently, crowns are used to completely encase an implant or a damaged tooth.

Our dentist may advise a crown when a huge filling can no longer be replaced because not enough tooth is left.

  • To Prevent a brittle tooth from breaking
  • To repair a broken tooth
  • To Add a bridge.
  • As a dental implant cover
  • To Cover a tooth that is distorted or discoloured.
  • To Protect a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy.
Eventually, gaps left by missing teeth cause the remaining teeth to shift, leading to a poor bite. Additionally, gum disease and TMJ problems might result from this. If you have one or more missing teeth, bridges are frequently used. They are fixed to the surrounding natural teeth or dental implants and bridge the gap left by lost teeth.

Various kinds of dental bridges.

  • Traditional Bridge
  • Cantilever Bridge
  • Maryland Bridge

Traditional Bridge

This type of bridge, comprised of ceramic or porcelain fused to metal, is most commonly used in dentistry. Dental crowns are created for the teeth (abutment teeth) on each side of the lost tooth and the pontic in the middle.

Cantilever Bridge

This is used when the patient lacks two teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The pontic is affixed to the end of the prepared abutment teeth next to one another.

Maryland Bridge

The pontic (fake tooth) is attached to the metal or porcelain wings bonded to the two abutment teeth of this bridge, which is constructed from a metal framework. This bridge serves as a traditional bridge’s conservative replacement.

Benefits of Dental Crowns include:

  • A dental crown may be the finest protection your dentist can provide for your teeth in terms of preservation or restoration of tooth structure.
  • A crown is used to safeguard a root canal-treated tooth since it is fragile.
  • In addition to providing physical protection, a crown also has an aesthetic benefit. It returns your tooth to its natural shape.
  • Ceramic crowns are sturdy and incredibly attractive. Your original smile can be improved or restored by matching the colour to the neighbouring teeth.
