A Dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of the tooth and ends at the gum line.
Crowns have several benefits which include:
Repair of a damaged or broken tooth as a result of an accident or injury.
Strengthens the tooth after root canal treatment.
Extra protection for the tooth after a large filling.
Prevents further spread of decay in a weakened tooth.
Repair a tooth or teeth which are too severely damaged for a Dental filling.
A Dental bridge is a structure in which a false tooth and two crowns acts as a replacement for a missing tooth. The false tooth sits in the gap and is flanked by the two crowns which fit over the natural teeth on each side of the gap. In other words, it ‘bridges’ the gap between your teeth.
At the DentalSPA, Dr. Amer uses zirconia, a tough form of Dental ceramic, which is compatible with the body. This means that the body will not reject or react in a negative way to the bridge. A zirconia bridge has a translucent appearance and is an ideal match with the rest of your teeth.
