Dental Crowns & Bridges Singapore

What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a type of dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.

When are Dental Crowns required in Singapore?

Crowns are indicated when: 

  • The tooth is badly broken and cannot be fixed with dental fillings 
  • The tooth underwent root canal treatment previously
  • The tooth is discoloured, out of alignment or misshaped 
  • The tooth has cracked due to heavy chewing force or wear and tear

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.

When is a Bridge needed in Singapore?

When considering replacement of a missing/extracted tooth, patients are often presented with 3 options: Replacement with an implant crown, bridge or dentures. A dental bridge is an ideal choice for the patient who does not wish to go through the surgical procedure of placing an implant, yet wants a replacement tooth that is permanently fitted in the mouth and is not removable.

CAD/CAM - Single Day Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges

CAD/CAM stands for Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing. Our clinicians use CEREC powered by Sirona to provide dental crowns, dental veneers, dental bridges, inlays and onlays to patients on the same day. Traditionally, this process would have taken 2 weeks because a mould of your teeth will first have to be taken, then sent to a dental laboratory where the dental crown or dental bridge will be made. With CAD/CAM, a 3D scan of your teeth is taken and your dental crown/bridge will be personally designed by your dentist, then fabricated by our machine. CAD/CAM has not only given us greater control over the quality of our restorations, but also saved our patients an extra appointment.

First, this 3D scanner is used to take a digital impression of your teeth. Your dentist then designs your crown/bridge digitally.

Once your crown/bridge has been designed and the material selected, our milling unit starts to make your dental restoration and it will be ready in no time!

Our extensive range of materials - E.max, Zirconia, hybrid ceramics, feldspathic porcelain etc. Every material has different properties, some give the best aesthetic and life-like result while others are known for their strength and resistance to occlusal forces. The material of choice differs across individuals and careful consideration is taken in selecting the material for a dental restoration in every case.
