Crowns and Bridges

In the dental clinic, dental crowns and bridges are often done procedures. They are generally used to give a tooth or teeth their full chewing function again. Because bridges require the usage of crowns, there are numerous differences between crowns and bridges.


A Crown is a cap or case that covers a damaged tooth. Crowns are when the tooth is discolored, cracked or chipped or when the fillings are lost. Different types of dental crowns are available and the dentist will advise the best crown option depending on the condition of the targeted teeth for placing the crown. Crowns are composed of a variety of materials including ceramic, resin, or porcelain. At MSR dentistry, our dentists use their skill and expertise along with modern technology to match the crown to the shape of the targeted teeth and their color. We have state of a art laboratory with advanced CAD/CAM technology to craft and design crowns in one single appointment.

Who is a candidate for dental crown?

  • Cover discolored or stained teeth: Crowns are an excellent solution to transparent or darker teeth and wearing down teeth. The dentist evaluates and understands the cause for teeth discoloration and addresses them first. For a crown restoration, the dentist takes an impression of the teeth and the crown is fabricated to resemble the natural shape and strength of the existing tooth.
  • Replacement of filling: If the teeth are heavily filled, it increases the risk of fractures or de-bonding of fillings. Repeated filling of teeth leads to loss of tooth structure and also deepens the filling and can cause nerve inflammation with severe pain. A crown restoration eliminates all these complications and the crown is fabricated before the remaining tooth structure becomes too short to support a crown.
  • To prevent further tooth cracking: Cracked or fractured teeth structure is covered with a crown to prevent further cracking and damage to the teeth. Cracked tooth produce a sensation while biting hard foods and may cause a deep crack or complete fracture of the teeth. Placing a crown restore the tooth and protect from splitting apart.
  • To anchor a bridge: The placement of an implant or tooth supported bridge is a good option to replace one or more missing teeth.
  • Root canal treated teeth: Root canal treatment involves hollowing out pulp of the affected teeth and these teeth are prone to fractures. Placing a crown on a root canal filled teeth protect them from further fractures and infections.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

A bridge is a structure that fills in the gap left by a missing tooth. It consists of an artificial tooth with crowns to fill a gap created by one or more missing or extracted teeth. At MSR dentistry, we create custom made bridges to fix in perfectly using advanced CAD/CAM technology. The bridge look and function like the natural teeth. The dentist prepare the neighboring teeth to support the bridge. Impressions are obtained from the prepared teeth to fabricate custom made bridge. In the meantime a temporary bridge is placed to protect the teeth. The new bridge is then cemented and anchored to the neighboring teeth to prevent movement or repositioning of the bridge.

At MSR dentistry, we fabricate custom made crowns and bridges using quality products and using advanced technology to create a permanent solution. To know more about crowns and bridges, book an appointment now.
