Porcelain Crowns and Bridges


A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size.  A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. And not all porcelain are created equally. We make sure to utilize recent advances in porcelain material allows us to use porcelain that provide excellent esthetic results while maintaining adequate strength such as the world renowned Ivocalr IPS emax, you can read about it on the following link.

What should you expect?

The tooth is prepared for the crown by removing a thin layer of teeth to make room for the crown. Then an impression is made from the tooth/teeth, which is send to a laboratory where they use highly standardized techniques to fabricate the crown.

Crowns are generally made with a metal substructure for strength with porcelain over coating for its cosmetics. All gold or all porcelain crowns are also available. During the time the crowns are made, the patient wears a temporary crown used to protect the teeth, which is generally very comfortable.

For patients who have missing teeth, Bridge may be a treatment of choice. A Bridge is a fixed restoration placed in placed of missing teeth, and is not removable. The technique used in making the Bridge is very similar to the one used for making a crown, with the exception that with a bridge the teeth in front and back of the missing tooth are prepared
