Quality Crowns and Bridges for Greater Wear and Comfort
Trust The Hindin Center for expert workmanship in their conveniently located Suffern dental office.
When teeth have large decay areas, cracks or fractures that are too big to be restored with a filling, a crown or cap is made to replace the damaged portion of the tooth. A crown is used to completely cover the old tooth. Most often we use gold, tooth-colored resin, zirconia or ceramic in our crowns, or combinations of the three. At the Hindin Center we are also using computer imaging technology for fabrication of crowns that ensure a better, more comfortable fit.
When a number of crowns are linked together to replace missing teeth, you have a bridge. The bridge is cemented onto the teeth on either side of the gap, and is not removable. Generally, gold and porcelain or zirconia and porcelain are used to fabricate the bridge.
