Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns

A crown is often recommended to restore weak, cracked or chipped teeth. A crown is made of strong material that protects the natural tooth. Crowns are placed on top of the remaining portion of the natural tooth. They are typically recommended after root canal therapy.

Crowns can last years. They are made of some of the strongest materials and can now be made to match the rest of your teeth and can be almost undetectable to the naked eye.

When placing a crown, your dentist will want to make sure the fit and color are just right. Your dentist may have an in-office lab or Cerec machine, or he or she may send your case to the laboratory in order to be custom molded to your remaining tooth structure.

If you believe you need a crown for a tooth, it’s important to see your dentist immediately. Postponement of receiving a dental crown can lead to serious oral health problems. Crowns are often used when there is deep decay or a lack of enamel. Without enamel, your nerves are left unprotected and decay can easily wreak havoc.

See your dentist about any oral pain or with more questions about dental crowns.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a common solution for tooth loss. A bridge is made by placing 2 crowns on anchoring teeth and connecting them with false teeth, or "pontics,"

Crowns and bridges are restorative dental procedures and can be made of various strong materials, such as porcelain, metal and ceramics.

Bridges can:

  • Restore your smile
  • Provide you with the ability to chew and speak properly
  • Maintain the intended shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

When receiving a bridge, you will first have your anchor or “abutment” teeth prepared. Tooth preparation may involve removing part of these teeth in order to securely attach the dental crowns, which will hold the false tooth or teeth in place. Next, your doctor will take an impression of your teeth, which is necessary for the lab to create your bridge. Your dentist will provide a temporary bridge to wear until the final bridge is placed.

The number of visits and the exact process may vary based on your doctor’s recommendation.

"My experience at Inspiring Smiles was amazing. My dental assistant Brittney was awesome. I have a horrible phobia of the dentist. My blood pressure was at stroke level there due to my fears; however, Brittney help ease my fear. She treated me like a individual and not just another patient sitting in the chair. She talked thoroughly with me about what to expect. I will continue to come to this dentist and I will refer others to come. Thanks Brittney for for your true compassion. It really shows in your work."
