A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth or that tooth used to have root canal treatment before.

 Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. While inarguably beneficial to dental health, the procedure and materials can be relatively expensive. 

The most common method of crowning a tooth involves using a dental impression of a prepared tooth by a dentist to fabricate the crown outside of the mouth. The crown can then be inserted at a subsequent dental appointment. 

Using this indirect method of tooth restoration allows use of strong restorative materials requiring time consuming fabrication methods requiring intense heat, such as casting metal or firing porcelain which would not be possible to complete inside the mouth. Because of the expansion properties, the relatively similar material costs, and the aesthetic benefits, many patients choose to have their crown fabricated with gold.


A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace a missing tooth or several teeth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth.

A bridge is fabricated by reducing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth by a preparation pattern determined by the location of the teeth and by the material from which the bridge is fabricated. In other words, the abutment teeth are reduced in size to accommodate the material to be used to restore the size and shape of the original teeth in a correct alignment and contact with the opposing teeth.

When restoring an edentulous space with a fixed partial denture that will crown the teeth adjacent to the space and bridge the gap with a pontic, the restoration is referred to as a bridge. Besides all of the preceding information that concerns single-unit crowns, bridges possess a few additional considerations when it comes to case selection and treatment planning, tooth preparation and restoration fabrication.

Endodontic treatment helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last as long as other natural teeth and often for a lifetime. 

There are 3 types of Crown/Bridge

  1. Full metal This metal can be made by gold or other metal. It is suitable for patient who has strong bite or extreme overnight grinding habit and short clinical posterior tooth length. However, we don’t use this type of crown very often due the cosmetic reason.
  2. All ceramic This crown/Bridge has no metal component at all. It is considered for cosmetic work. There are many kind of all ceramic crown/bridge. The most strongest one is zirconia which there are many brand available such as Cercon, Procera and etc.
  3. Porcelain fuse to metal. The outer surface will be porcelain or ceramic but the substructure will be metal so there are many kinds of metal substructure.
  4. Precious metal or high gold crown/bridge
  5. Semi precious metal crown/bridge.
  6. Palladium.
  7. Non precious.

Crown & Bridge normally takes 2 visits. If you have no hidden problem, such as root canal infection or gum disease, we can finish its work within 5-7 days.

  • The first visit is for tooth preparation.
  • The second visit is for cementation.

There are about 5-7 days between the first and second visit for laboratory processing.
