Fixed Partial Dentures
Fixed Partial Denture (Bridgework/Implants)
Have you lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease? Unhappy with your smile… want a makeover? Then you have made a right choice being here, at Ishanvi dental care and implant center we can create a permanent bridge to restore your solid smile. A bridge not only fills the gap, but it also prevents the repositioning of remaining teeth. It can also correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function, speech articulation and provide internal structure for the face to give you a more youthful appearance.
Crowns and bridges are fixed artificial teeth that deal with the restoration of damaged teeth. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which can be taken out and cleaned daily, these are cemented onto existing teeth and can only be removed by a dentist.
Crowns are usually indicated
- In cases of large restorations,
- To strengthen non-vital teeth after a root canal treatment
- To protect the structure of a tooth that is fractured or broken
- Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used for cosmetic or functional reasons to improve its appearance, shape or alignment
Crowns can be made of Porcelain fused to metal or all-ceramic to match the color of natural teeth or of other materials like gold, metal alloys and acrylic.
Unlike crowns which are single units, a bridge is made up of 2 or more units. It may be recommended:
Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth. As with crowns, there is a choice of materials for bridges. Your dentist can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
At Ishanvi Dental Care and Implant Center, we are well equipped with latest technology and well trained technicians to you with best in class crown and bridges. We offer metal ceramic and metal free (all ceramic) crown and bridge works keeping up with the latest trend in esthetics.
Types of Crown and bridge available:

Crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, but require regular checkups and good maintenance of oral hygiene. They do sometimes come loose or fall out, but can be fixed back, if brought back to a dentist immediately. A bridge can lose its support if the teeth or bone holding it in place are damaged by dental disease.
Proper maintenance by brushing twice a day and flossing daily will ensure longevity of the restoration.
To prevent damage to your crown or bridge, avoid chewing hard and sticky food.
