Treatments - Crowns and Bridges

Where damage to a tooth is extreme: teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling and apparently difficult to repair, we can use crowns. They are a reliable solution to restore tooth’s shape, size, strength and function of the tooth. Crowns can be metal-ceramic restorations, all- ceramic or ceramic metal-free with zirconium oxide frameworks particularly when appearance is of prime importance.
The optimal rigidity of ceramics, its surface, the biomechanical proprieties, the optical parameters and its natural characteristics allows this material to imitate the dental appearance of natural tooth structure much more closely than materials used in the past. When you have one or more missing teeth, then a traditional fixed dental bridge may be used to fill the gaps.
A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth. The art of the dental bridge is to create the optical illusion that the missing tooth emerges from the gum just like a natural tooth.
