What Are Dental Crowns & Bridges?

Dental crowns, or tooth caps, are custom-made, tooth-shaped restorations that fit over your damaged or decayed teeth. Often made from durable porcelain or ceramic materials, these restorations provide multiple benefits. They safeguard broken, cracked, or otherwise compromised teeth from further damage while also restoring their strength and appearance. Dental crowns are suitable for a wide range of situations, including protecting a tooth after a root canal treatment. We can also place them at many positions throughout your smile, making them a versatile option for completing your smile.

Dental bridges span the gap left by a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. This restoration is comprised of artificial teeth that are anchored on either side by crowns. Tooth bridges restore the look of your smile while preventing adjacent teeth from shifting out of place.

Dental crowns and bridges play a crucial role in restorative dentistry. At Dental Health Group, our team of dentists commit to providing options that benefit your long-term oral health. Our work doesn't stop after your restoration has been placed, we're here to offer ongoing support, including checkups to keep an eye on both your dental health and the condition of your crown or bridge.

Our Approach to Restorative Dentistry

We strive to make your restorative dental experience as streamlined and simplified as possible. Throughout the process, we work hard to keep you comfortable and well-informed. While every treatment plan is unique, some general features involved with all of our dental bridge and crown placements are:

  • Initial Consultation: Rejuvenating your smile begins with a detailed oral examination, where we assess the health of your teeth and gums. During this assessment, we may take advantage of diagnostic tools like x-rays to get a clear picture of what's going on with your compromised tooth.
  • Treatment Planning & Pre-Restoration Procedures: Based on our findings, we'll devise a customized plan for restoring your smile. We may discover you require treatment before providing a restoration. For instance, if you need root canal therapy to treat an infection, we can perform the procedure in-house under the supervision of our endodontist.
  • Preparation and Impressions: After any necessary procedures and healing periods, we prepare your affected tooth or teeth for restorations. This involves thoroughly cleaning and sometimes gently reshaping teeth. Once prepared, we'll take precise impressions of the affected area.
  • Final Placement: We send the impressions we create to a trusted dental lab, where they craft your tooth crown or bridge. Once it's ready, we'll invite you back for a final fitting. At this time, we will perform any necessary adjustments to help ensure a comfortable fit.
