A crown is a restoration that covers a tooth in order to strengthen it as well as restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown may be placed to support a large filling
when there is little remaining tooth structure, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, or restore fractured teeth.
A tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy
will require a crown following treatment to provide strength and support to the tooth. We only use materials for crowns that will provide the longest lasting benefits to our patients.
Why restore with a dental crown? Dr Puneet Lunial will always recommend the most conservative treatment possible for your situation. However, there will be times when a crown is necessary. A crown is used when there is not enough tooth structure left to hold a large filling, when a tooth is fractured or broken, and to hide discolored misaligned teeth in the patients that are not good candidates for dental veeners.
A fixed bridge, usually made of porcelain fused to metal is used to replace missing teeth. A bridge helps to create a normal bite, prevent stress on the dental arch, prevent the drifting and tilt of adjacent teeth, inhibit decay in difficult areas, andslow the onset of periodontal diseases.
Bridges are composed of abutments (the sound teeth on either side acting as supports) and the pontic (artificial teeth attached to the abutments). Our patients appreciate the expertise and training that Dr Puneet Lunial has in this field as well as success with her patients.
