How long do dental crowns and bridges last?
Dental Crowns and Bridges have a significantly long life.

The process usually takes 2-3 appointments unless any additional procedure like filling, build up of supporting tooth, crown lengthening procedure, etc. is needed.

When the clinic receives the crown/ bridge from the lab, it is delivered to you and cemented.

Crowns and bridges can be made in a variety of materials like metal, metal ceramic, Zirconia and emax. Dr Bari Dental Clinic is the best dental clinic in Pune where we will help you choose the material best suited for your case.
A number of factors determine what crown and bridge material is best suited for your case. They are – position and location of tooth in the dental arch, remaining natural structure of the tooth, proximity to the pulp, existing decay and fillings, history of Root Canal treatment, missing teeth in adjacent areas, occlusal loading forces, dietary habits, any parafunctional habits and cost. At Dr Bari Dental Clinic, these factors are weighed against each other to choose the best possible prosthesis material for you.
The crown and bridge materials are broadly classified into 3 types:
METAL: They are silver colored crowns and lack esthetics. Due to their strength, they were commonly used in back region of jaws until zirconia were introduced.
METAL CERAMIC/ PORCELAIN FUSED TO METAL: They are one of the most widely used materials for crown and bridge. Porcelain is fired upon a metal substructure and the shades are matched according to your existing dentition.
ALL CERAMIC CROWNS/ FULL CERAMIC CROWNS/ METAL FREE CROWNS: As the name suggests they do not have any metal in them and are completely tooth colored. At Dr Bari Dental Clinic, our patients get different varieties of full ceramic crowns like Zirconia and Lithium Disilicate (emax) to choose from.

Unlike Metal and Metal ceramic crowns, they do not have risks of allergies or gum irritation. Also being tooth colored, they do not cause the appearance of dark lines at the neck of the tooth which commonly occur with Metal ceramic crowns.
