Non-Invasive missing Teeth Replacement with Crowns,Bridges,Dentures

Crowns (Metal ceramics and all ceramics )

Over time, teeth can be damaged, cracked or weakened by decay. Dentists use a crown to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth. Crowns are made to match the colour of your natural teeth, and besides strengthening an impaired tooth. A crown is a dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.

Bridges (Metal ceramics and All ceramics)

Dental bridges, also known as fixed removable dentures, literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implant. Types of bridges may vary, depending upon how they are fabricated and the way they anchor to the adjacent teeth. Conventionally, bridges are made using the indirect method of restoration.

Dental Implants

A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbzone. When dental work such as a crown, fixed bridge, or a full set of dentures is added, one or more missing teeth can be replaced. A dental implant is fabricated from a very strong material (titanium) that is compatible with your body and is placed in a simple office procedure which generally is no more inconvenient than a tooth extraction. After an initial healing period during which the implant
is buried in bone and left undisturbed under gum tissue, it is uncovered
and connected to a small metal post that secures and supports the artificial teeth.


Dentures are also called false teeth. Dentures are removable prosthesis which may replace whole set of teeth in one or both jaws, or in case of partial dentures few false teeth are fixed among other natural teeth.

Complete dentures are made of acrylic base with artificial teeth positioned so they restore the smile, the jaw position and restore the bite.A set of dentures require few visits to the dentist starting with taking a mold of the mouth, which is used to make plaster casts that is used by a technician to designs the dentures. The dentist then ensures that denture fit perfectly to the shape of the jaws. However, once fitted
further adjustments would be required to attain the exact natural shape & look.
