Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges serve as excellent alternatives to removable dentures, offering a fixed solution for various dental concerns. At Monte Albert Dental Surgery, we understand that choosing the right option depends on your unique oral health, condition, and goals. Our dental professionals are here to guide you through the process and determine the best solution for you.

Dental Crowns - What Are They?

A dental crown is a tooth-like cap securely placed over a tooth, restoring its size, appearance, and shape. This option is ideal for various situations, including:

  • Restoring a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth

  • Strengthening a weak tooth

  • Covering a dental implant

  • Securing a dental bridge

  • Protecting a weakened tooth

  • Covering a root canal-treated tooth

We offer different types of dental crowns to suit your specific needs:

  • Ceramic Crown: Crafted from a porcelain-based filling, this crown seamlessly blends with natural teeth, making it ideal for restoring front teeth.

  • Gold Alloy Crown: Resistant to fracturing and wear, this bio-compatible and durable option is less prone to becoming brittle from chewing or biting.

  • Base-Metal Alloy Crown: Made from metals like zinc, copper, or titanium, this crown provides strength and corrosion resistance.

Dental Bridges - What Are They?

A dental bridge consists of two or more crowns on either side of a gap caused by a missing tooth. In the middle, a false or artificial tooth (pontic) is placed, made from materials like gold, porcelain, or alloy. Dental bridges effectively fill the gap, providing support through implants or natural teeth. This treatment is suitable for decayed or physically damaged teeth, as well as for addressing abscesses.

Popular types of dental bridges include:

  • Cantilever Dental Bridge: Utilizing an abutment on one side of the pontic, this bridge is employed when one side of the dental gap has a natural tooth.

  • Maryland Bridge: Characterized by a porcelain and metal framework holding the pontic securely, this bridge involves bonding the adjacent teeth from the back to the framework.

Procedure

For dental crowns, the initial visit involves examination and preparation, including X-rays and impressions. The crown is placed during the second visit.

The dental bridge procedure is similar, with follow-up visits to ensure optimal functionality.
