Crown and Bridges
WONDER SMILE holds the distinction of being the first Centre in Chinchwad to successfully complete a full Mouth Rehabilitation using 3M Lava Crowns and Bridges. We offer a versatile range of products from full metal crowns to the very latest restorative options such as CAD-CAM metal-free Zirconia crowns like Procera from Nobel Biocare, Lava from 3M and Zircad from Ivoclar to suit various clinical indications and budgets. Resin-bonded Bridges, while minimally invasive, need to be re-fixed every 18-24 months and are thus not as effective as a long-term solution. Our close affiliations with dental laboratories in Mumbai and Pune allow us to deliver crowns and bridges quickly, saving our patients valuable time and money.
Dental Bridge otherwise known as a Fixed Partial denture comes under a branch of dentistry known as Prosthodontics. The major function of the Dental Bridge is to fill the gap between teeth generated due to the missing of one or more teeth. Here, a bridge is created of two crowns for the teeth on each side of the gap and the gap itself is filled by a false tooth/teeth. The two teeth on the either side of the false teeth play the anchoring role and are termed as abutment teeth. The false teeth are known as pontics in dental terms. These false teeth (Pontics) are made from the materials like alloys, gold, porcelain or with a combination of all the materials. The dental bridges can get the necessary support with the help of natural teeth or by implants.

Types of Bridges
There are three main types of bridges available, which you can choose from. One of them is the traditional bridge, which is the most common amongst all the available bridges. It is manufactured with the help of porcelain, which is normally fused with any metal or ceramics. The next important type includes cantilever bridges. These kinds of bridges are used only in special cases. They are applied, when there is the presence of adjacent teeth on one side of the missing tooth or teeth. The last major type of bridge includes Maryland bonded bridge. They are also known as resin-bonded bridge. These bridges are normally made from plastic teeth and gums and are supported with the help of a metal framework. There are metal wings present on each side of the bridge, which make a link with the existing teeth for it’s proper fixation with the socket.
