Crowns and bridges are the most usual dental restoration work in dentistry. Setia Dental offers porcelain fused to metal, porcelain fused to gold and full porcelain (jacket) crowns and bridges as well.
Crowns are an ideal way to rebuild teeth which have been broken, or which have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. The crown fits over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and the contour of a natural tooth.
Most crowns are made from porcelain fused to metal or gold. A precious metal base is made and then porcelain is applied in layers over it. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth – to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
