Dentist, Endodontics Dr. Manisha Rao's  Response
Hi, tooth caps or fixed partial dentures are restorations that replace the missing teeth. In your case it is suggested to replace the missing tooth. They resemble your natural teeth and are fabricated according to the shape, size and colour of your existing natural teeth. The dentist will take an impression of your teeth and make the caps for you. The caps are custom made for every patient. Please follow yoyr dentist's instructions for the same. Take care!

tooth caps are very difficult to use and re use. go for permanent one, though its costly its life long. these caps needed to be changed very frequently. they are only for temproary use.
