Dental Crowns and Bridges

We take lost and damaged teeth very seriously. Our crowns and bridges provide the restoration results you need to smile proudly and confidently.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are two fundamental restorative treatments used to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. Dental crowns are caps placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are used to cover a tooth that has been broken or is excessively worn down or to complete treatments such as root canals and dental implants. Dental bridges, on the other hand, are used primarily to fill gaps left by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. These restorations are supported by natural teeth or implants and help maintain the shape of your face and alleviate stress in your bite.

  • How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

    With proper care and good oral hygiene, dental crowns and bridges can last a lifetime. However, they do sometimes come loose or fall out. To ensure long life for your crowns and bridges, avoid chewing hard foods, ice, or other hard objects.

  • Are dental crowns and bridges noticeable?

    Crowns and bridges are designed to match the color of your natural teeth and fit seamlessly into your smile. Our advanced materials and precise color-matching techniques ensure that your restorations are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

  • What is the process for getting a crown or bridge?

    The process typically involves two visits to our office. During the first visit, we prepare the teeth by reshaping them and take impressions to create your custom crown or bridge. A temporary crown or bridge may be placed while your permanent one is made. During the second visit, the temporary is removed, and the new crown or bridge is adjusted and cemented into place, ensuring a proper fit and comfortable bite.
