A natural dental crown is that portion which is covered with enamel and is generally above the gum line. The original tooth crown is made up of white enamel on the outside and a yellow dentin supporting the enamel beneath it. The remaining portion of the tooth is visible inside the mouth and is not covered by soft or hard tissue.
This is the natural state of tooth, and this shape, color and relative proportions are about what dentists aim to replace with artificial materials whenever the natural crowns of the teeth are deficient in some way.Our Dentist is well trained in crown and bridge treatment in Coimbatore and we are located at Trichy Road in Ramanathapuram.
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration or a fixed dental prosthesis in the mouth to replace missing teeth. It uses remaining teeth to support the new artificial tooth or teeth. A conventional fixed bridge consists of crowns that are fixed to the teeth on either side of the missing teeth and false teeth are rigidly attached to these crowns.
Dental crowns (also sometimes mentioned as ‘dental caps’ or ‘tooth caps’) cover over and encase the tooth on which they are cemented. Dentists use crowns when replacing broken or decayed teeth, as a way to strengthen teeth and as method to improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth.
Temporary crowns are made up of acrylic or metal alloy. They cover the tooth. Stainless steel crowns are prefabricated crowns which is used on permanent and baby teeth. Metal crowns can be made from cast gold alloys or cast silver palladium alloys.
Traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, maryland bonded bridges and Implant-supported dental bridges are the major types of dental bridges. It maintains the shape of your face, preventing lip or faces collapse and restore the ability to chew and speak properly.
A crown is more complicated than a filling. Laboratory fees are suffered in its preparation and the materials used are more expensive than normal filling materials. Two or three visits are usually needed for the dentist to reduce the size of the existing tooth, make a mould, fit a temporary crown and finally adhere the permanent crown in place.
Crowns and Bridges can last a lifetime. The most important step you can take to secure the longevity of your crown or bridge is to practice good oral hygiene. A bridge can lose its support if the teeth or bone holding it in place are affected by dental disease.
