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:
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 human 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.
