Suffering from a tooth loss issue? Or are you in a juncture where you need to choose from an array of restorative procedures to resolve your missing tooth problem? Both Dental Crowns and Bridges are procedures that pave your way in achieving this goal. However, you must be bothering about weighing the efficacy of these procedures. Let us see what Dental crowns and Bridges are in a nutshell.
Dental Crowns in a brief
A crown is made of porcelain which is fused to metal. It could also be made of ceramic, resin or even stainless steel! Porcelain takes the shape of a tooth and makes up the front part of the crown, which is the visible part of your crown. The metal support that is fitted from behind, could be made up of anything - gold, base metal or other alloys. It takes at least two dentists appointments. Your dentist takes the impression of the teeth and fixes the mold of the teeth.
The tooth impressions are sent to dental laboratory to tailor the crown. In the next visit the permanent crown is fitted to his mouth and your dentist prescribes the details what needs to be done to take care of it.
Since porcelain is not as bite resistant as the metals, it may chip over time, thus exposing the metals. Hence the porcelain fusion is not recommended for molars (back teeth) which withstands maximum biting pressures!
