Crown and Bridges
Crown and bridges are the most affordable permanent solutions for missing teeth whereas implants are not so budget-friendly for the patients. A crown is placed when a single tooth is damaged, broken or grossly decayed and bridges are placed when more than one tooth structure is involved.
Crown and bridges can be made up of ceramic or porcelain. Crowns can also be made up of any alloy like gold or silver. The metal crown will have porcelain bonded to the exterior to give it strength and a natural look. The ceramic or zirconia crowns give a natural appearance. A crown can be placed when a tooth is fractured, not in shape, after an RCT or when tooth is discoloured to provide an aesthetic appearance.
Bridges are either made of porcelain fused with metal (PFM) or Zirconia to give good strength and also a natural look. They are placed when multiple teeth are involved. There are four different types of bridges: traditional, cantilever, Maryland, and implant-supported.
The cost of crown and bridges depends upon the material used. Zirconia crowns are durable and more aesthetic, so they cost more than PFM crowns. PFM crowns are made up of ceramic with metal to provide more strength and natural appearance as well. Emax Crowns are lighter and thinner. They are translucent and adapt more aesthetically with natural adjacent teeth. The choice of crown depends upon the patients’ personal needs, budget, and other considerations.
