Crowns Bridges Dentures

Crowns ,Bridges and Dentures are prosthetic devices that are used to cover the fractured / damaged /decayed teeth or teeth with large fillings or used to replace single or multiple missing teeth.

CROWNS: Dental Crowns are cap like coverings, which are custom made to cover a particular tooth mainly after the root canal treatment. Most of the crowns are made using the CAD/CAM (Computer Assisted Design/Computer Assisted Milling) technology for the accurate and detailed finishing of the tooth/teeth.

We offer the latest crowns such as 3M lava crowns, Veneers, Emax, Bruxzir and Zirconia Crowns along with traditional metal and PFM crowns so that the patient has a huge array to choose from and decide as per own convenience.

BRIDGES: Looking for fixed teeth to replace missing teeth – Dental Bridges are the Most Affordable treatment Option.

A dental bridge consists of a pontic (which is the missing tooth / teeth) and is attached (cemented) to the surrounding teeth to act as a support.

Dental Bridges are age old choice for replacement of single or multiple missing teeth and yet are commonly used having good average span of 10-15 years.

Bridges are used to fill the gap when one or more teeth are missing in between. A bridge consists of a pontic (a filler tooth) and is attached to the surrounding crowns to cement it properly. The materials used to make crowns and bridge are – porcelain, zirconium ceramic etc.

Implants can also be used to make bridges to fill up the missing spaces.

REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES Removable Partial Dentures was one of the 1st Dental Treatment option available to replace missing teeth. It was used very commonly until Dental Bridges starting gaining popularity. The biggest drawback of Removable Partial Dentures is they need to remove at night and kept and re-worn again in the morning. Also they need to be cleaned after every meal and at times are uncomfortable in eating.

FULL DENTURES The Basic Full Dentures were the treatment of choice for all senior citizens for all missing teeth.

Though a lot of advancement has been made like introduction of flexible dentures yet its drawbacks remain like Removable Partial Dentures, that they need to be cleaned after meals and removed at night. In todays time we can covert these basic removable dentures to a fixed Implant Supported Denture making it more comfortable to use.
