Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Also known as a cap, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that fits over the enamel to rebuild and strengthen a tooth. Crowns are one of the most versatile restorations, capable of protecting, rebuilding, and even enhancing a tooth in both health and appearance. To determine if you need a crown, our dentist will perform a thorough evaluation and talk with you about all your treatment options. We may recommend a crown to:
- Protect a weak, cracked, or fractured tooth
- Rebuild a broken tooth
- Restore a badly decayed tooth
- Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
- Complete a dental implant
- Restore a worn or misshapen tooth
- Enhance a tooth's cosmetic appeal
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge is a restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. They consist of prosthetic teeth, called pontics, and a crown at each end. The crowns are placed over neighboring healthy teeth, called abutment teeth, which act as supports to hold the pontics in place. Alternatively, you may receive an implant-supported bridge, which uses implants for stability rather than abutment teeth. A traditional bridge can replace up to three missing teeth in a row, and an implant-supported bridge typically replaces three to four teeth.
Our Crown & Bridge Restoration Process
Before we begin any treatment, our dentists will perform a thorough dental exam. We combine diligent care with a friendly, patient-focused atmosphere to provide you with quality treatment and a positive experience. Our practice uses modern technology like digital x-rays to evaluate your oral health and identify any issues that might need a restoration. We offer comprehensive treatment such as root canal therapy to save infected teeth, and we can also provide gentle extractions if a tooth can't be saved.
Once we've determined the nature of your oral health issue, we'll discuss whether a crown or bridge will be the best choice for you. Our team will take time to answer your questions and address concerns, so you feel confident in your treatment plan. Then, we'll begin preparing the tooth or teeth needing treatment.
First, our dentist will shape the tooth enamel to make space for the dental crown or bridge. This keeps the tooth from feeling bulky or causing uneven wear on the opposing teeth. We then take impressions of the treated tooth and send them to a trusted lab that will fabricate your new crown or bridge. Each restoration is color-matched to the surrounding teeth so that it appears natural within your smile. Our dentist will provide a temporary crown to protect your tooth until your permanent restoration is complete.
After your new crown or bridge arrives, typically in about two weeks, we'll invite you back to our office for placement. The dentist will remove the temporary restoration and check your new custom restoration for the look and fit. Once you're satisfied, we'll cement the crown or bridge in place, providing you with a beautifully restored smile you can enjoy for years to come.
Our practice offers both traditional and implant-supported crowns and bridges so that you can select the one that best meets your needs. A dental implant is the only restoration that replaces both the crown and root of a missing tooth, offering several benefits in health, stability, and aesthetic appeal. To receive a dental implant, you must have good oral health and a sturdy jawbone. Our dentist can answer all your questions, inform you of your options, and evaluate your smile to determine if dental implants may be the right choice for you.
What Are the Benefits of a Porcelain Restoration?
At our practice, we use only ceramic or porcelain to create our custom restorations so that you can get the treatment you need without negatively impacting your smile's aesthetic. Porcelain, in particular, is a highly favored material for restorations because of its many advantages. Some of the benefits of porcelain include:
Color: Porcelain can be shaded to closely match the color of the surrounding teeth, which helps it to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Translucence: Porcelain is very similar to natural enamel in the way it reflects light. With skillful shaping, a porcelain crown or bridge will appear very lifelike, and most people won't even notice the restoration is there.
Durability: A porcelain crown or bridge is actually quite sturdy, designed to withstand daily use without cracking or wearing. With proper care, a porcelain restoration can last a decade or more.
