Crowns & Bridges

The anatomy of a tooth can be divided into two basic parts the root and the crown. For a person with healthy gums and bone, the root of the tooth is covered by the gums and bone. The crown is the part of the tooth visible in the mouth, above the gum line on lower teeth and below the gum line on upper teeth. A cemented restoration that partially or completely covers the outside of the tooth is referred to as a dental crown.

Crowning or Capping A Tooth

Dental caps, also known as crowns, are frequently used in the dental field. Crowning started out as a procedure to hold and protect the tooth that has undergone a root canal procedure since after the root canal procedure the crown helps the teeth stay firm, glued and protected from any kind of plague.

Oday, crowning or capping is a common procedure. The Dental Studio has crowned and capped teeth for many patients with the best care and accuracy in Bangalore. Crowning is also done to structure broken teeth or to stop the infection caused by eating up of the teeth.

Different types of crowns: porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, metal crowns, composite crowns & porcelain crowns

Creating a Bridge

Bridges help fill the gap left by a missing tooth. A bridge typically has 2 crowns acting as a support for the centerpiece called Pontic. Pontic is the false tooth that replaces the missing teeth and crowns on either side making it a robust structure. The two crowns sandwiching the pontic all together called a bridge.

Different Types Of Bridges: Traditional bridges, cantilever bridges & Maryland bonded bridges.

Crowns and bridges procedure

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns

At The Dental Studio, we are the best in creating a pontic and making it a perfect fit. The process of the bridge requires multiple office visits:

First visit:   Abutment teeth are prepared for removing a portion of enamel to fit the crowns. The impressions of the tooth are recorded to create pontic and crowns to make an exact fit. We will fix you up with a temporary bridge to protect the exposed enamel.

Second visit:   The new pontic tooth, made of metal or porcelain replaces the temporary bridge. The tooth is adjusted and worked on to make it a perfect fit. Now the bridge is completed.

Subsequent office visits:   After the bridge is complete, patients are requested to visit a few times just to check on the fixation and the holding of the bridge.

Note:  Teeth are drilled to make them even for the bridge and local anesthesia is administered to numb the pain. The Dental Studio is the best and most preferred in Bangalore because of the fact that the patients experience little or no pain even after the effects of anesthesia wear out.
