Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges offer effective restoration solutions when teeth are lost or severely damaged. Our crowns and bridges appear natural and provide essential support for chewing and speaking. We prioritize durability by using high-quality materials, ensuring our restorations deliver exceptional performance and longevity.

Our practice ensures that your dental crowns and bridges seamlessly blend with your existing teeth, functioning like natural teeth. With our investment in advanced technology, we can offer the convenience of single-visit dental crown placements, a service that typically requires multiple visits at other dental offices.

  • What is a dental crown?

    A dental crown is a versatile dental restoration utilized in various scenarios. A dental crown is used when a tooth has a large filling that surpasses the natural tooth structure, following root canal therapy, or for cosmetic enhancements.

    The uses of dental crowns are diverse. Initially, they are fitted over damaged teeth, capping the existing structure and restoring normal functionality. Dental crowns can be affixed to dental implants, serving as stable replacements for missing teeth. These implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone, ensuring the crown’s stability and security.

    Dental crowns may provide additional support for dental bridges. They require no special treatment and can be maintained through regular brushing and flossing routines.

  • What is a dental bridge?

    Dental bridges are frequently used when a patient experiences tooth loss. These bridges, named for their role in spanning the gap left by missing teeth, typically comprise one or more replacement teeth. They are carefully crafted to blend with natural teeth and work perfectly, using abutment crowns or metal mechanisms for security.

  • How do temporary dental crowns work?

    Your dentist will follow several steps to place a dental crown. Initially, impressions of your upper and lower dental arches are taken to create a replica of your teeth. These impressions provide a secure fit for the permanent crown, preventing bacteria from forming. The impression is then sent to a dental laboratory to construct your permanent crown. The tooth base is shaped to ensure accuracy, leaving it temporarily vulnerable until the permanent crown is ready. Temporary crowns are applied during this period to protect the tooth.
