Dental crowns and bridges are restorative treatments. Crowns cover and protect damaged teeth, while bridges replace missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth.
Crowns are recommended for broken or severely decayed teeth, while bridges are suitable for individuals with one or more missing teeth.
Dental crowns, crafted from materials like Zirconia, Emax, or precious metals such as gold, restore compromised teeth, ensuring strength, functionality and aesthetics. Bridges provide a stable and naturally aesthetic solution for missing teeth. Both crowns and bridges can last up to 15+ years with a proper care.
The process involves tooth preparation, 3D Scan of the mouth, and the placement of custom-made crowns or bridges. The entire procedure typically spans a few weeks.
The Etruscans, an ancient Italian civilization, used gold crowns over 2,500 years ago. It’s remarkable that gold crowns continue to have relevance in specific situations!
