What Are Dental Bridges and Crowns?

A dental crown covers a tooth to protect it, support it, or reshape its surface. Patients might need a crown if a tooth has a large filling, is compromised by a crack, or needs additional strength after root canal therapy. Crowns can also replace a decayed or missing tooth when used with an implant post.

Dental bridges are restorations that replace one or multiple teeth in a row. They consist of a crown at the front and back of the bridge with prosthetic teeth called pontics suspended between them. We offer custom conventional crowns and bridges as well as implant-supported options to renew the integrity of your bite and the beauty of your smile.

Our Crowns and Bridges Process

That is why we take the time to get to know you and actively listen and ask questions to understand your smile goals. Our team understands that your smile is an important part of who you are, and we are dedicated to protecting it and helping you discover a smile you love.

Our dental crowns and bridges process begins with a gentle exam of your jaws, teeth, and gums to determine whether you need a traditional or implant-supported crown or bridge. We take precise measurements and information, which we will send to a trusted lab where your custom dental restoration is crafted. Our team will sit down with you to discuss which restoration option and material we recommend to boost your oral health. We offer tooth-colored options as well as metal crowns and bridges to meet your specific needs and lifestyle.

Once we have received your crown or bridge, we will schedule an appointment for your final fitting. Our compassionate dentist artfully sets and cements your dental restoration in place, and you will leave our office ready to show off your new smile.

Crowns and Bridges FAQs

It's natural to have questions about your dental health and how our treatments can improve it, which is why we welcome your questions. Our team is happy to provide the answers and resources you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental crowns and bridges.

Do dental crowns hurt?

No. Dental crowns and bridges don't hurt because they are customized to fit comfortably within your natural arch of teeth. You may feel slight pressure the first day, but most people forget they have a crown or bridge after the first week.

There are a few foods to avoid when you have dental restorations because they will damage your crown or bridge. It's best to avoid hard candies, certain nuts, and ice. Our dentist will provide a full list of foods we recommend steering clear of.

Dental crowns and bridges are easy to care for because you simply brush and floss them twice daily, just like your natural teeth. You should also maintain your biannual dental appointments so our gentle dentist can verify the integrity of your restoration.

Crowns and bridges are durable and can last for many years when properly cared for. A conventional dental restoration can last 10-15 years, while an implant-supported crown or bridge consists of a permanent implant post and prosthetic teeth that can last over a decade.
