Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges are two common dental restoration options that can help restore the function and appearance of your teeth. Whether you’ve lost a single tooth or multiple teeth due to decay, injury, or other reasons, crowns and bridges can help you regain a healthy and confident smile.



A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a tooth-shaped covering that is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth. Crowns are typically made of porcelain or ceramic materials that are designed to match the color and shape of your natural teeth. They can also be made of gold, metal alloys, or acrylic materials. Dental crowns are used to protect weakened teeth from further damage, restore the shape and size of broken or chipped teeth, or cover discolored or misshapen teeth. The procedure involves removing a small amount of the tooth’s enamel to make room for the crown, taking an impression of the tooth to create a custom-fitted crown, and then placing the crown over the tooth with dental cement.



A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of two or more dental crowns that are attached to the teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth. The crowns serve as anchors for the bridge, and a prosthetic tooth is attached to the bridge to fill the gap. Dental bridges can be made from porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys, and are designed to match the color and shape of your natural teeth. The procedure involves preparing the teeth on either side of the gap by removing a small amount of enamel, taking an impression of the teeth, and then placing the bridge with dental cement.



Both Crowns & Bridges are custom-made to match the color and shape of the patient’s natural teeth and are designed to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the smile. They are typically placed over the course of two appointments: the first appointment involves preparing the tooth or teeth for the restoration and taking impressions of the mouth, while the second appointment involves placing the crown or bridge and making any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.
