The bridge consists of an artificial tooth and two porcelain crowns, one for each natural tooth on either side of the gap. Dr. Gidwani customizes the bridge to fit snugly and comfortably in your mouth, fixing it into place so that it cannot fall out or be removed by hand. The results are remarkably natural looking and extremely strong, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with full confidence. Crowns, like veneers, dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth; however, unlike veneers, they cover the entire surface area of the tooth, helping to prevent weaker teeth from cracking or breaking. By strengthening these weaker teeth, they effectively reduce or eliminate pain, sensitivity, and difficulty with chewing and speaking. They are also commonly used to keep errant fillings in place. Whatever else their function, they will mask imperfections in the teeth, giving you a more pleasing, attractive smile. A single crown can be made out of Porcelain fused to metal, or Gold, or Zirconia ( Bruxzir or Emax Cad). They are put over fractured or root canalled teeth to strengthen them or over implants to restore them.
