Crowns and Bridges

middle aged woman with beautiful smileCrowns or bridges are excellent solutions to help people of all walks of life restore the look and integrity of their smile.

If you’re experiencing any of the following, you may be a candidate for a crown and bridge:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Dead or decaying teeth

We’re proud to be able to make crowns in-house using our advanced CEREC machine, which means the entire process can be completed in just one office visit. This means you’ll leave our practice with a beaming, beautiful smile after just a couple of hours.

Crowns

A crown is a ‘cap’ that fits over your natural tooth to improve the function and aesthetic. During a crown placement, your natural tooth will be slightly shaved down so that the crown can fit around it. Don’t worry—your crown will be color-matched to the look of your other teeth so that it fits perfectly without looking out of place.

A crown is ideal for patients who still have natural tooth integrity to support the crown. If the tooth is badly decayed or missing, a crown and bridge may be a better option.

Bridges

A dental bridge is designed to connect to a crown, offering more support to ensure that your dental work has the strength it needs to be long lasting and support proper function in your mouth. A dental bridge typically involves three or more teeth—the ‘anchor’ teeth and the missing or compromised teeth that will be fitted with crowns.

A dental bridge is attached to a crown, meaning you won’t be able to floss between your teeth, however you’ll still be able to properly brush and clean them with the help of a special flosser.
