A Crown also called a cap, is a custom made restoration that repairs and strengthens a tooth that has fractured, has a large cavity, and has an old filling that has failed or has had a root canal therapy.
Fabricated of all-porcelain or porcelain fused to metal, for strength, endurance and appearance, a crown completely covers the tooth.
Restoring and protecting Crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes, enhancing the appearance of a tooth that is discoloured or an unusual shape.
A Bridge allows the dentist to replace lost teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant. Basically a false tooth is held in place by being attached to a tooth next door.
An all Porcelain Crown is a crown that would not have a metal substructure under it. The reason for wanting to eliminate the metal is primarily to get rid of the dark line at the very edge of the crown and to let more light pass through the porcelain to look more lifelike. They are the closest things to the ideal enamel replacement that modern dentistry has yet invented.
