A crown or cap is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape & size. a crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Although there are several types of crowns ,porcelain (tooth coloured crown) are the most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable & and will last many years, but like most dental restorations , they will eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size , colour or your teeth giving you a natural, long- lasting beautiful smile.

    Reasons for Crowns:
  • Broken or fractured Teeth
  • Cosmetic Enhancement
  • Decayed Teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • Large Fillings
  • Teeth having Root Canal

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate impressions (molds) that will be used to create your custom crown . A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory. While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and will shape the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly. At your second appointment your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.


Bridge are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing . They are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. You have a choice of materials for bridges and your dentist can help you decide which to use based on the location of the missing tooth/ teeth, its function, aesthetic considerations and cost.
