Dental Crowns & Bridges

If teeth has lost a lot of tooth structure, whether by extensive caries, an accident, or simply want to improve the aesthetics of our smile, a crown is the best solution for the tooth.

Dental Crowns


Dental Crowns by RxCura are basically a tailor made cover that covers the entire surface of the tooth. The structure of the tooth wears a couple of millimeters to allow permanent cementation of the crown. A Crown protects the tooth from further damage and improves its shape & look. For the improved appearance, porcelain or ceramic crowns are the most preferred choice as they can be matched to the natural color of the teeth.


Why do you need a Crown?


If you have a very large filling in a tooth, each time you chew, the natural parts of the tooth (i.e. not the restorative material of the filling) flex and are at risk of fracture.

If this fracture extends below the gingiva, or the center of the tooth where the nerve is located, this often results in tooth loss. One advantage of the crown is that it encapsulates or protects the remaining tissue of the natural tooth, in addition to the restorative material of the filling, and prevents this flexion from occurring, thus avoiding the future loss of your tooth.


The dentist will recommend a crown for:


  • Replace large seals, when not enough tooth

  • Prevent a weak tooth from fracturing

  • Repair a fractured tooth

  • Place a bridge

  • Covering a dental implant

  • Cover a discolored or deformed tooth

  • Covering a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment


Types of Porcelain Dental Crowns


There are various types of Porcelain Dental Crowns:

  • Complete conventional porcelain dental crowns (porcelain jacket)

  • Dental porcelain crowns

  • Repair a fractured tooth

  • Porcelain crowns fused to metal (VMK, or Zirconia)

  • Temporary Crowns

  • Permanent Crowns



Based on the qualities and features you need in a particular tooth we will advise you on the pros and cons of certain types of dental crowns. For example if you have a heavy bite, and need a very strong crown, you may need a Zirconium crown or an E-max. If you need something very aesthetic, like the crown on a previous tooth, you may need a Porcelain Jacket or E-max crown.



Other concerns to consider are, for example, if you have metal under the crown that has to be concealed so that it does not show through your crown, you would certainly need the porcelain option fused with dental metal crown.


Dental Bridges


If you are missing one or more teeth, you can replace them with a fixed bridge. A bridge are two crowns (on both sides of the hollow) fused to another crown that fills the hollow in the middle. Bridges can be placed in both the posterior and anterior teeth zone, and these bridges have a white ceramic finish mimicking the rest of their teeth.



Crowns & Bridges Procedure can be placed on both natural teeth and implants. The difference lies in what structure (tooth or implant) will support the bridge. If you do not have natural teeth in your mouth, you can restore your teeth with an overdenture (removable device supported on 2 to 4 implants in each arch, depending on the case), or a fixed implanted implant (fixed device supported on 6 to 8 Implants in each arch, depending on the case).
