Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Crowns offer a protective cover for teeth that cannot withstand normal biting pressure. Their reinforcement helps extend the life of damaged teeth, reducing your risk of infection or tooth loss. We can also place crowns on top of dental implants to replace individual missing teeth.

You may need a dental crown if your tooth is affected by

  • Large fractures
  • Moderate enamel wear
  • Significant areas of decay
  • Previous root canal treatment

Fixed Dental Bridges

Bridges are a traditional solution for missing teeth. Either end of the bridge is anchored on top of a pair of healthy teeth or dental implants, supporting the restoration over the open space in your smile. While the ends of the bridge are essentially functional dental crowns, the ‘tooth’ between them is securely suspended between them. When you smile or talk, no one should tell the difference.

Replacing missing teeth serves multiple purposes. Not only do they address aesthetic and functional concerns, but bridges also help preserve the natural spacing of your tooth alignment. Otherwise, adjacent teeth would begin to tilt inward toward the missing tooth.

Treatment: What to Expect

Most crown and bridge procedures require two separate visits, approximately two weeks apart. During the first appointment, the supporting tooth is prepped. Then we take an impression and send it to our lab, where your fixed restoration is crafted. In the meantime, we’ll fit you with a temporary restoration to wear. About two weeks later, you’ll return to have the permanent restoration cemented into place.
