A Crown is a protective covering that is cemented onto your tooth. A crown may be recommended for a tooth that has a large filling a root canal or a fracture. A bridge is simple 3 or more crowns linked. Bridges help to replace missing teeth, keep teeth from drifting out of position, and improve aesthetics.
Crowns are dental restorations that are indicated for root canal treated teeth, broken teeth, heavily decayed teeth, or teeth that maybe broken and needed for partial denture retention and support. Crowns can be made of full Porcelain, Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM), full gold, Zirconium and more. If a patient is diagnosed with a tooth that needs a crown, the dentist will discuss with the patient the options and the type of crown that would be most ideal.
onlays and 3/4 crowns
There are many types of crowns that can be used on your teeth. Onlays and 3/4 crowns are types of dental crowns that don’t cover as much of your underlying tooth as traditional dental crowns. A traditional crown will cover your entire tooth. Onlays and 3/4 crowns may be appropriate when you still have a solid tooth structure. It’s considered a more conservative approach compared to full coverage of your crown. In this procedure, your dentist removes the affected area and performs a reshaping of the tooth to receive the crown.
