Porcelain Crown & Bridge

A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Typically, implants, root canal treated teeth, badly broken teeth and improvement of esthetics are the most common reasons for placing crowns.

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. A bridge is fabricated by slightly reducing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth and using them as support or “abutments” to replace the missing tooth. As with crowns, bridges are cemented with a special dental cement and are non removable.

With advances in dentistry, these crowns and bridges can be fabricated to exactly look and feel like the teeth they replace. Traditionally they are made from precious base metal and porcelain, now it is possible to make full porcelain or full ceramic restorations that further enhance the esthetics of the teeth.

Dr. Gogate will determine based on your specific condition, which materials are best suited for long term success. As always, all treatment options are discussed to best suit your specific situation.
