In some cases the tooth should be restored by mean of dental crown.
A crown is a restoration that covers, or “caps,” a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving the appearance of a tooth. Crowns are necessary when a tooth is generally broken down and fillings won’t solve the problem.
Crowns are also used to restore a tooth after root canal treatment, when there isn’t enough of the tooth remaining to provide support for a large filling, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, restore fractured teeth or cover badly shaped or discolored teeth.
There are few types of dental crowns and metal alloys for their production.We will adjust the type of crown specifically to your case and explain you all differencies and advantages.

In case of tooth absence the problem is treated by mean of dental implant or dental bridge.Implant is the artificial tooth root like structure
are manufactured from biologically neutral pure titanium that is accepted by the human body and these implants fuse with the jawbone
to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement.Above implant post is fastened which mimics the prepared tooth crown and then crown is
fabricated.To read more about dental implants.
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The restoration can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist.
If you’ve lost a part(or all) of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, the partial(or complete) dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.Usually applied when dental implants are contraindicated.
Implant Supported Dentures
Today as a rule is that at least 2-4 implants are required for stabilization of low jaw denture.It significantly improves the patient’s comfort and function.The need for implantation comes from the fact that there is no vacum in the lower jaw for denture retenshion and stabilization as in the upper jaw.
Sometimes,as additional treatment option, 4 implants are inserted into the upper jaw.This is done in order to construct a more delicate upper
jaw prothesis with a free,uncovered hard palate for a better well being.
Fixed Detachable Denture
When there are any anatomical restrictions(as significant vertical bone loss) or impossible to implantate at all sites desired,but patient still desires fixed restoration-the fixed detachable denture is the treatment of choice. On relatively small number of dental implants,4 to 6 according to case,a narrow,delicate prothesis with metallic base is fabricated,which restores all missing teeth of the jaw.The restoration is fixed,but should be unscrewed in dental office each 6 monthes for cleaning
