Fractured teeth, root canal treated teeth, implants, teeth with minimal tooth structure left or purely for aesthetic reasons to transform one’s smile
In the instance that there is not too much tooth structure left , a core is placed first. A core is a filling placed to increase the surface area that bonds to the crown increasing its retention and longevity.
When a crown has to be suspended over a gap in the mouth it is termed a bridge. A bridge sits on teeth on either side of the gap for support.
Crowns offer increased longevity of the remaining teeth, a better bite, improved aesthetics and function . A shade or colour of crown can be specifically chosen as per the patients request. The shape and size can also be chosen.
