A crown is needed if ,for some reasons(caries,fracture etc,)the tooth is partly damaged , or want to restore shape , size and colour strengthening and improving the appearace of it. To prepare the tooth for crown, it is reduced ,using a modern buffing technique so the crown can fit over it. Crowns cover completly the tooth they seal the cracks so the damage doesn’get worse. They should last approximately five to eight years but with proper oral hygene and excluding damaging habbits (biting fingernails, chewing ice,hard foods etc) most crowns last much longer.
Crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist.
Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth.They span the space where the teeth are missing .
Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic and ceramic. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain and may be recommended for back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both strong and attractive.
