Damaged Or Missing Teeth?
A Dental Crown Or Bridge Could Be Your Solution

Dental crowns and bridges restore your smile by strengthening or replacing chipped, broken, or missing teeth.

There Are Multiple Ways To Fix A Smile

Crowns, bridges, and dental implants restore your smile by replacing missing teeth or protecting existing damaged teeth. Both bridges and crowns look and feel completely natural, so you can chew your favorite foods again with ease and show off your restored smile with confidence.

Using the latest advanced dental technology, our Digital Smile Design lets you be part of the design process in a way that wasn’t possible before. You’ll see the end results of your smile makeover BEFORE you get it done and have a deeper level of involvement throughout the entire process.

With thousands of hours of specialized training and hundreds of dental lectures given around the world, you can trust that your smile is in good hands.

Dental Crowns For Chipped, Broken, Or Weak Teeth

For teeth that are damaged but still intact, a dental crown can help save the tooth and protect it from further damage. A crown is a porcelain, metal, or alloy cap that’s placed over the top of an existing tooth. The cap is cemented in place and protects the tooth from further damages caused by chewing and grinding. A dental crown is used for a variety of purposes including:

  • Protects weak teeth from fracturing
  • Restores function of an already fractured tooth
  • Used to attach to a bridge
  • Covers and protects an existing implant
  • Covers and protects a severely discolored tooth or badly shaped tooth
  • Covers and protects a tooth that’s recently had a root canal

Dental Bridge For Missing Teeth

If you have a missing tooth, a dental bridge can fill the gap in your smile. A bridge is essentially two dental crowns placed on teeth on either side of the gap and connected with an artificial tooth that replaces the missing one. This artificial tooth isn’t fixed to your jaw like a dental implant but is more like a placeholder held in place by the two crowns. The bridge restores your chewing function and ensures there is no gap in your teeth to cause further damages.

Dental Implants For Missing Teeth

A dental implant is an artificial root, made of surgical-grade titanium that replaces missing teeth. Once integrated with the jawbone, It provides a strong and durable place for your gums to grow around. Dental implants are made to look like a natural tooth in combination with a post (abutment) and crown. An implant is usually the most ideal way to replace a single tooth. Why remove healthy tooth structure to do a bridge when you can replace the single tooth instead?

The Dental Crown & Bridge Procedure

Assessing The Strength & Health Of Your Teeth

Before beginning treatment, we need to ensure your tooth is strong enough to support a crown or bridge. Just like a house needs a good foundation in order to support it, so too does a tooth.

Using X-Rays and advanced dental equipment, your dentist examines, inspects, and assesses the strength of your teeth to ensure they can safely hold a crown or bridge. We also take this opportunity to check for any signs of decay or gum disease.

Preparing The Tooth

The crowns placed over your tooth need to be the same size as your existing teeth. Your dentist might have to slightly shave down your tooth so the crown fits properly. Before this is done, you’ll receive a numbing agent so you won’t feel any pain.

For bridges, your dentist will prep the teeth on either side of your missing tooth.

Temporary Crowns

After taking impressions of your teeth, matching their color, and visualizing how they fit together, your dentist will install a temporary crown while your permanent crown is being made.

Permanent Crowns

Once your permanent crown is ready, you’ll return for your final fitting. Your dentist will check to see that your bite is correct, comfortable, and make any necessary adjustments.

Ready, Set, Smile!

You’re now ready to show off your restored smile. Our dentists take extra care to perfectly match both color and light sensitivity so they’re nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

A well taken care of crown can last a lifetime, however, most have an average lifespan of about 10-15 years. As with your natural teeth, practicing good oral hygiene and being careful with how you use your teeth will extend their lives to keep them shining for many years to come.
