A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
A bridge is fabricated by reducing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth by a preparation pattern determined by the location of the teeth and by the material from which the bridge is fabricated.
The materials used for the bridges includegold, porcelain fused to metal, or in the correct situation porcelain alone. Now they are also made in excellent quality from ZIRCONIA.
A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement.
Benefits are: sturdier as compared to partial dentures, long term durability, evidence based success as compared to other restorative treatments or no treatment.
Can be made of metal, porcelain fused to metal and also available in excellent quality as they are now also made from ZIRCONIA.
