Ceramic Crowns & Bridges

A crown-sometimes called a “cap” is a tooth-like covering placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth. Support the tooth when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. Crowns may also be used to protect the structure of a tooth that is fractured or broken.

A crown-sometimes called a “cap”-is a tooth-like covering placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth. Used to strengthen, restore or improve the appearance of your natural tooth. A crown is placed on an individual tooth much like a thimble over your finger. In addition to being used to strengthen a tooth to accommodate the attachment of a fixed bridge, crowns serve many functions. One of the most common indications is to support the tooth when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. Crowns may also be used to protect the structure of a tooth that is fractured or broken.

Usage of ceramic in making dental crowns is a break through in dentistry. Dental Porcelain is a kind of ceramic and is used in fabricating dental crown and bridges. Main advantage is, its white colour which makes it similar to natural tooth.

There are two types of ceramic crowns namely Porcelain Fused to Metal crowns and All Ceramic crowns.

Porcelain fused metal crowns in common terminology called as metal ceramic crowns have a metal shell/core on which, is fused a veneer of porcelain. They were considered as gold standard for repair of damaged teeth and they have ruled dentistry for several decades.

In All Ceramic Crowns,the entire thickness of the crown is made out of porcelain. These type of crowns are also mentioned as Metal free crowns and are most bio-compatible type of crowns.
