Crowns and Bridges
When do I need them?
- Crowns – They are cemented when the tooth is severely decayed, attrited (worn out), broken or when the tooth has undergone root canal treatment.
- Bridges – They are commonly used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to existing teeth surrounding the space of the missing teeth.
How long do they last?

Recent advancements have led to the development of CAD/CAM crowns commonly called as Zirconia crowns. These crowns are designed and milled to the exact dimensions of the tooth by using CAD/CAM technology.
