Dental Crowns


When a tooth is fractured, has a large, old filling, or is severely damaged by decay, your dentist may recommend the placement of a crown, or cap. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your smile. Types of crowns include the full porcelain crown, the porcelain-fused-to-metal crown and the all-metal crown.

Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to the dentist's office. Initially, we will:

  1. Removes decay and shapes the tooth.
  2. Makes an impression
  3. Makes and fits a temporary crown of plastic or metal.

In a subsequent visit, we remove the temporary, fit and adjust the final crown, and cement the crown in place.

Dental Bridges

Few incidents have greater impact on dental health and personal appearance than tooth loss. When one or more teeth are missing, the remaining teeth can drift out of position, which can lead to a change in the bite, the loss of additional teeth, decay and gum disease.

When tooth loss occurs, we may recommend the placement of a bridge. A bridge is one or more replacement teeth anchored by one or more crowns on each side.
