Crown & Bridges: Metal Free Crown and Bridges In Hyderabad
A Crown is a type of Dental restoration which completely Caps or encircles a Tooth. In other words it is a Tooth-shaped "Cap" that is placed over a Tooth -- to cover the Tooth to restore its Shape and Size, Strength, and improve its appearance.
Crowns are used to cover Teeth that are weakened by decay, severely damaged, chipped or discolored.
Crowns are most commonly indicated after the Root Canal Therapy. When the Teeth undergo Endodontic treatment or Root Canal Therapy, they are devitalized. The nerve and blood supply are cut off and the Nerve space is filled with various inert materials to prevent future invasion by bacteria. The living tooth structure is surprisingly resilient and can sustain considerable abuse without fracturing. Consequently, after the Root Canal Therapy is performed, the Tooth becomes extremely brittle and is significantly weaker than its vital neighbors. Hence all the Root Canal Treated Teeth require Crown for support and proper protection against fracture.
The most common method of Crowning a Tooth involves using a Dental impression of a prepared Tooth by a Dentist to fabricate the Crown outside of the mouth. The Crown can then be inserted at a subsequent Dental appointment.
Permanent Crowns can be made from
All Metal (such as Stainless Steel or Metal Alloy)
Resin Crowns, or Metal Free/All Ceramic Crowns
Zirconia Crowns are popularly known as All Ceramic or Metal-free Crowns. They are designed with Computer Aided Technology (CAD-CAM) for the highest level of precision and accuracy
Besides strengthening a damaged Tooth, a Crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment.
Based on the requirement Crown may be recommended to:
Cover a tooth that has had Root Canal treatment
Cover a Discolored or poorly shaped Tooth
Replace a Large Filling when there isn't enough Tooth remaining
Protect a Weak Tooth from fracturing
Restore a Fractured Tooth
Attachment of a Bridge
Cover a Dental Implant
A Bridge, also known as a Fixed Partial Denture, is a Dental restoration used to replace a missing Tooth by joining permanently to adjacent Teeth.
A Bridge is prepared by reducing the Teeth on either side of the missing Tooth or Teeth. In other words, the prepared Teeth also known as Abutment Teeth are reduced in size to accommodate and restore the Size and Shape of the original Teeth. These Teeth, called Abutments, serve as anchors for the Bridge. A replacement Tooth, called a Pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments.
A Bridge may be recommended if you're missing one or more Teeth. Gaps left by missing Teeth eventually cause the remaining Teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in an Unstable and bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing Teeth can also lead to Gum Diseases, Cavities and Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
Bridges are one of the most commonest and natural looking replacement for missing Teeth esthetically and functionally.
Bridges are cemented to the natural Teeth or Implants surrounding the empty space.
As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for Bridges.
