A tooth may require a crown in one of the following conditions.
  • When there is a large filling and a high chance of fracture of the filling suspected
  • In case of malformed Enamel and Dentin subjecting the tooth to fracture susceptibility
  • To restore a fractured tooth
  • When certain discolored and malformed teeth have to be rectified
  • Following root canal therapy
  • Following dental implant placement
A dental crown is custom made at a laboratory on the impression of your teeth taken by your dentist. The dental crowns come in different materials:
    • Full metal crown (Stainless steel crown)
    • All ceramic crowns
    • PFM (Porcelain fused to metal crown)
    • Zirconia (Metal free crown)
The choice of the material of crown depends on:
    • Location of the tooth requiring the crown
    • Amount of clearance available from the opposing tooth
    • Esthetic concern
    • Cost

When you have one or two tooth missing, you have various options of replacing it. One of the options available is getting a bridge done to replace it. A Bridge is a cap on the healthy tooth in front and the tooth behind the lost/missing tooth replacing the missing tooth as well.

Again the bridge can be done in one the different ways:
  • Full metal bridge
  • PFM (metal with porcelain all around the tooth)
  • PFM (metal with only porcelain facing)
  • Zirconia (metal-free bridges)
The disadvantages of this include:
  • There is a need to prepare the teeth which are healthy to receive a bridge
  • A patient needs to have teeth both in front and behind the missing teeth
  • Sometimes when we need to replace 2 teeth more than 2 natural teeth may need to be cut to provide adequate
    anchorage
  • Since the alveolar bone does not get any stimulation, resorption of alveolar bone continues to take place in the area of the missing tooth.
