Strengthen Your Teeth With Dental Crowns

A single dental crown is one of the most common types of dental restorations. Our dental crowns are made of porcelain and customized to perfectly cover your tooth. After examining your smile with digital X-rays and taking impressions, we’ll give you a stronger smile in as little as one more appointment. Our porcelain crowns are:

  • Versatile – In addition to breaks, they can repair cracks, worn-down teeth, or moderately to severely decayed teeth. We also use them to restore the strength and appearance of a tooth after performing root canal therapy.
  • Beautiful – Your non-metal crown will be made to look completely natural next to your other teeth.
  • Strong – Durable porcelain holds up well under chewing pressure and will allow you to eat any foods you like.

If your tooth is damaged but doesn’t require a full dental crown, an inlay or onlay may be the solution. An inlay is made of porcelain and protects the space in the middle of your tooth, between the “cusps.” Onlays are similar but can cover your tooth’s full biting surface and cusps.

Fill in Your Smile Gaps With a Bridge

If you have missing teeth, a dental bridge offers you the chance to have a complete smile. Made of porcelain, these replacement teeth are designed to blend in with all of your teeth. We fix dental crowns to the teeth on either side of your gap to hold your bridge in place. Your dental bridge can also be supported by dental implants.

Apart from improving your appearance, dental bridges benefit your smile by:

  • Reducing your risk of gum disease and tooth decay, by preventing food from becoming stuck in smile gaps and leading to bacteria buildup
  • Improving your ability to speak
  • Keeping your neighboring teeth in place
  • Enabling you to chew hard, nutritious foods such as apples and nuts
  • Lasting for years with proper oral care habits

Whether you need a crown or a bridge, we offer two forms of sedation. Select laughing gas or oral sedation so you remain comfortable and pain-free during your treatment.

Common Questions About Dental Crowns & Bridges

When are dental crowns used?

Dental crowns are primarily considered a restorative treatment, although they can provide cosmetic benefits, too. You can get a crown to fix broken teeth, cracked teeth, decayed teeth, and worn-down teeth. A crown can be placed on a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. You also could get a crown if you have discolored and misshapen teeth.

How do dental bridges stay in place?

A dental bridge is built by fusing dental crowns together. For a traditional bridge, the outer teeth are bonded to healthy teeth that have been reshaped to act as support for the bridge. Someone who is missing multiple teeth also can consider getting an implant-supported bridge. After the implants are placed in your jaw, the bridge can be attached to them to fill the gap in your smile.

Should I get a dental crown or a bridge?

If you need to repair a single tooth, you should probably get a crown. If you are missing multiple teeth, we would recommend getting a bridge. If you are missing a single tooth, you have the option of getting a crown with a dental implant or a traditional bridge. We’ll be happy to go over your options in greater detail if you aren’t sure which is right for you.
