Dental Crowns & Bridges Treatment By RxCura – India’s Trusted Chain of Dental Clinics

If teeth has lost a lot of tooth structure, whether by extensive caries, an accident, or simply want to improve the aesthetics of our smile, a crown is the best solution for the tooth.

Dental Crowns


Dental Crowns by RxCura are basically a tailor made cover that covers the entire surface of the tooth. The structure of the tooth wears a couple of millimeters to allow permanent cementation of the crown. A Crown protects the tooth from further damage and improves its shape & look. For the improved appearance, porcelain or ceramic crowns are the most preferred choice as they can be matched to the natural color of the teeth.


Why do you need a Crown?


If you have a very large filling in a tooth, each time you chew, the natural parts of the tooth (i.e. not the restorative material of the filling) flex and are at risk of fracture.

If this fracture extends below the gingiva, or the center of the tooth where the nerve is located, this often results in tooth loss. One advantage of the crown is that it encapsulates or protects the remaining tissue of the natural tooth, in addition to the restorative material of the filling, and prevents this flexion from occurring, thus avoiding the future loss of your tooth.


The dentist will recommend a crown for:


  • Replace large seals, when not enough tooth

  • Prevent a weak tooth from fracturing

  • Repair a fractured tooth

  • Place a bridge

  • Covering a dental implant

  • Cover a discolored or deformed tooth

  • Covering a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment


Types of Porcelain Dental Crowns


There are various types of Porcelain Dental Crowns:

  • Complete conventional porcelain dental crowns (porcelain jacket)

  • Dental porcelain crowns

  • Repair a fractured tooth

  • Porcelain crowns fused to metal (VMK, or Zirconia)

  • Temporary Crowns

  • Permanent Crowns



Based on the qualities and features you need in a particular tooth we will advise you on the pros and cons of certain types of dental crowns. For example if you have a heavy bite, and need a very strong crown, you may need a Zirconium crown or an E-max. If you need something very aesthetic, like the crown on a previous tooth, you may need a Porcelain Jacket or E-max crown.



Other concerns to consider are, for example, if you have metal under the crown that has to be concealed so that it does not show through your crown, you would certainly need the porcelain option fused with dental metal crown.


Dental Bridges


If you are missing one or more teeth, you can replace them with a fixed bridge. A bridge are two crowns (on both sides of the hollow) fused to another crown that fills the hollow in the middle. Bridges can be placed in both the posterior and anterior teeth zone, and these bridges have a white ceramic finish mimicking the rest of their teeth.



Crowns & Bridges Procedure can be placed on both natural teeth and implants. The difference lies in what structure (tooth or implant) will support the bridge. If you do not have natural teeth in your mouth, you can restore your teeth with an overdenture (removable device supported on 2 to 4 implants in each arch, depending on the case), or a fixed implanted implant (fixed device supported on 6 to 8 Implants in each arch, depending on the case).

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are basically artificial tooth roots which are used for the replacement of missing tooth. They assume the function of artificial tooth roots to support crown, bridges and dentures on top of it.

There is nothing better than healthy teeth and gums, which are in a good condition by adopting regular preventive treatment (prophylaxis). However, the lack of early prevention leads to serious problems with our jaw and teeth. Every dentist strives to save a diseased tooth, which often cannot happen because the caries or periodontal disease has already caused enough damage. The tooth must then go away – complete or a part of it. In such cases, Dental Implants are normally used to set the root of the tooth.


More simply, the dental implant represents an artificial root which is inserted in the jaw at the site of the missing tooth. When the wound in the jaw is cured, new tissue is formed around the implant. Later a crown is mounted on the root.



These Dental Implants are made of titanium because this material is very well tolerated and does not harm the organism. The implants usually consist of different parts and have different size and shape – depending on the individual needs of the patient.


Vanity is not the only reason why an Implant Dentistry should be used. They are placed in the jaw, because without them, our quality of life would suffer. Dental Implants provide below advantages:


  • 1) Dental Implants provide the look very closer to natural tooth and thus are most desirable treatment for the missing tooth

  • 2) Implants are built to last long. They are better long term solution compared to other options such as Fixed Dentures and Removable Dentures.

  • 3) Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

  • 4) Dental Implants improve your speech without worry that teeth might slip as in case of poorly fitted Dentures

  • 5) Dental Implants gives you comfort of your natural smile without worrying about the embarrassment of missing teeth or slipping of removable Dentures.

  • 6) And a lot more!


What does such a treatment cost?


The Dental Implant Cost vary considerably, depending on number of implants required, which company produces the implants and what materials are made from them. Here it is very important to say that you only have to rely on high-quality materials, because only they could offer a good quality.

For this reason, you should never trust dentists who promise miracles, almost free of charge. Always inquire about experience of the Implantologist, how long he has already used implants and what success he has (normally 85 -90% Implants are successful). If you do not like something, look for a second opinion. It is generally true that good and reliable treatment costs more and more. We will be happy to guide on choosing you the best Dental Implant treatment in Bangalore.


Did you know that dental implants are one of the best treatment options to replace lost teeth?


Instead of using removable prostheses or using adjacent teeth as a support for the use of a dental bridge, Implant Dentistry are long-term substitute components that the oral and maxillofacial surgeon places surgically in the maxillary bones, thus giving us an artificial tooth that looks aesthetically well and that fulfills all the masticatory functions that are needed as if it were a natural tooth.

A root canal (tooth root) is composed of nerve fibers and blood vessels; a pulpy matrix is filled between the tooth cavity that sometimes gets inflamed due to multiple reasons such as fracture or deep decay. With root treatment, elimination of inflammation and bacteria can be done to improve the health of buccal cavity.

Micro-Endodontics or the root canal treatment, is a comprehensive focus which is in practice nowadays.

Root canal treatment also includes root filling revisions, i.e., the renewed root filling in already root-treated teeth.



The most common symptoms that can indicate the need of a root canal problem are provided below.


  • Frequent appearance of pain, particularly in response to hold & cold stimulus

  • Swelling in the gums or inflammation in the tooth

  • Tenderness of the tooth i.e. feeling sensitivity on tapping the tooth

  • Bad taste or odor coming out from swollen gum


Some teeth seem to give little indication that there’s a problem within their nerve space. But an experienced dentist can easily look for subtle hints that are an obvious sign that a problem likely exists.


You can contact expert dentist of RxCura in Bangalore to seek expert guidance for your problem, without the need to visit them.


In most cases, it will be necessary to first apply local anesthesia; the tooth will be anesthetized. As a result, the tooth is opened to the pulp chamber using a drill. The carious, infected substance or the pulp tissue is removed, an existing bleeding is breast-fed, and the tooth is dried. To keep away saliva and microorganisms from the surgical field in the further course, a special clamping rubber is suitable for screening (rubber dam). This is a rubber latex, which is fixed to the tooth with a clip and is clamped outside the oral cavity in a frame.



A. Depth of the root canals electronically or radiographically.

Teeth can be individually different in size, and accordingly, the tooth roots are differently long. Depending on the tooth group, they reach differently into the jaw bone. The root canal filling should be approximately 0.5 to 1.5 millimeters in front of the root tip since the root canals usually have their narrowest point here.


Bacteria or root canal filling material should not reach beyond the tip of the root, as this can lead to painful tissue reactions. Therefore, the required length of the root canal filling (working length) is determined with a so-called measuring x-ray and electronic devices (Apex locators). In pregnancy, of course, no x-ray should be prepared. Here the electronic length determination (endometry with Apex locators) proves to be very helpful.



B. Clean, expand and form channels

Once the channel inputs are found, the channels are processed with root canal instruments to remove the infected tissue in the channels. This is done in several steps, for which you need differently thin instruments (up to 0.1 mm). Since the channels are usually very narrow and curved, these instruments must be very flexible and well-cut. They should not be too thick and stiff. Otherwise they will not follow the canal course and possibly damage or destroy the tooth roots.


C. Disinfect the canal system, dissolve residual tissue

The root canals are not only narrow and curved, but they also have different branches and lateral canals. As a result, many areas cannot be reached with mechanical instruments, which is why the root canal system is thoroughly rinsed after mechanical processing. Various rinsing agents are required to dissolve organic tissue residues, kill bacteria and remove residues of the tooth substance from the canal wall. After rinsing the root canals are dried with different paper tips.


D. Close the drainage system tightly


If there was pain or a swelling already before the treatment, after cleansing and disinfecting, an antimicrobial drug is first introduced into the root canal system in most cases. The tooth is closed with a provisional, easily removable material.


The root canal system must be tightly closed to prevent microorganisms from reaching the oral cavity through the tooth into the jaw bone. The material of the root canal filling must above all be biologically compatible; it should not trigger any defensive reactions of the tissue around the tooth or the jawbone. Also, it must seal well and must not be allowed to dissolve in the tissue fluid. If pain or a swelling continue after the treatment, the root canal filling must also be removed. Finally, it is necessary that the filling is also visible in the X-ray image and can be controlled.




Saving the natural tooth with this form of treatment offers several advantages including:


  • Normal biting sensation and force

  • Effective chewing process

  • Natural appearance

  • Protection of teeth over excessive wear or strain
