Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are called indirect restorations, because they are fabricated in a laboratory, instead of being built in layers directly into the tooth, like a filling. The dentist takes impressions of the teeth, then the restoration is shaped to match the part of the tooth it will replace. The restoration is attached with dental cement.

What should I expect at my first appointment?

One of our staff members will compile your medical and dental history during your first visit. We will then examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer and take X-rays of your teeth as needed. After we review your dental profile, we will discuss a diagnosis with you. We will discuss your options for treatment and fee payment and help you determine the best plan to fit your needs.

Crowns

Crowns are called indirect restorations, because they are fabricated in a laboratory, instead of being built in layers directly into the tooth, like a filling. The dentist takes impressions of the teeth, then the restoration is shaped to match the part of the tooth it will replace. The restoration is attached with dental cement.

Crowns are more effective than fillings in reinforcing teeth to withstand biting forces, and more resistant to further decay. If a tooth’s original structure is too compromised to support a filling, these indirect restorations can provide fantastic, long-lasting, beautiful results.

Bridges

A fixed bridge is a dental restoration that is attached to surrounding teeth. The bridge fills the gap left by the missing teeth, preventing the surrounding teeth from moving into the gap and becoming misaligned. In cases where the surrounding teeth are not strong enough to support a bridge, an implant is often recommended.
