Bridges & Crowns

Crowns and bridges are dental treatments that safeguard and reinforce your teeth while correcting dental issues. A dental crown is a custom-made prosthetic tooth to cover a damaged natural tooth. It restores the tooth's function while also providing strength and support. Dental bridges complement your smile by filling up the gap left by a missing tooth. Everyone wants a healthy, attractive smile, and crowns and bridges may help you achieve that objective.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are cap-shaped restorations custom-fit over a broken tooth to restore its shape and size while also preserving it from additional decay or injury. They help protect dental implants, bridges, and damaged teeth from getting worse.

Porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic, gold, and other metals can be used to create crowns. Your dental crown is custom-made to match your original teeth' appearance, feel, and function.

How do dental crowns work?

Our staff must file your teeth and remove a part of the enamel – more if rot is present to make room for the dental crown. We then take imprints of your mouth to use as a template for the crown.

The crown construction procedure takes at least a few weeks, and you must wear a temporary crown throughout that period. At your second consultation, our experts will remove the temporary crown and replace it with your permanent restoration.

Once you're satisfied with the results, our team cements the crown in place and makes minor tweaks if necessary. Dental crowns can last up to eight years if adequately cared for.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a tooth replacement device that has a natural appearance. This restoration, similar to an architectural bridge, uses abutments (supporting teeth) to keep the prosthetic tooth in the middle in place. Bridges are divided into three general categories:

Traditional bridge

Traditional bridges fill a gap between two healthy teeth. The teeth on either side of the gap help keep the bridge in place.

Cantilever bridge

This type of bridge is used if there are no healthy teeth on one (or both) side to support it. These are commonly used at the back of mouths.

Maryland bridge

A Maryland bridge replaces a lost tooth by attaching to a metal or porcelain framework rather than supporting teeth. These are commonly used for front teeth.

How do dental bridges work?

Our team files and removes a small amount of enamel from your abutment teeth to make way for durable dental crowns once you've decided on the perfect bridge for your smile. He next creates your abutment crowns and fake teeth by taking imprints of your mouth.

Our experts may be able to fit you for a temporary bridge because the bridge construction process takes at least two weeks. This bridge will be removed and replaced with a permanent alternative at your next appointment.

Our staff cements the bridge in place and makes minor changes as needed to restore function to your bite, similar to how a dental crown is placed.
