Fixed prosthedontics has been the standard for tooth repair and replacement for many years. A crown is needed when a tooth has been affected by decay, fracture or other reasons that has led to missing tooth structure. The tooth is prepared in a way that will support the all ceramic monolithic zirconia that will be cemented on your tooth to provide superior fit, aesthetics and function.
A fixed bridge involves multiple units that will span an area where teeth are missing where false ceramic teeth will be cemented to adjacent teeth to give the appearance of a natural tooth. This is usually done in all ceramic or metal fused to porcelain when extra strength is needed to protect the occlusion and bite.
Fixed prosthetic dental work has been a staple of dentistry for many years but also requires the patient to follow a proper hygiene and dental prophylactic schedule to maintain their restorations for years to come.
