Dental Crowns & Dental Bridges

Dental Crowns are porcelain or porcelain fused to metal restorations used primarily to repair broken or fractured teeth, improve the prognosis for a tooth that has had previous root canal therapy, or change the shape or color of a tooth.

Dental Bridges fills a space where a tooth once was, and is generally three or more crowns fused together. When damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “fused on gold” crowns to restore the smile. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.

With advancements in technology, materials and procedures today, there is no reason that the crown or bridge you get at CitiDental will look and feel as authentic and as natural as teeth they replace once were.

The Details?

Whether used to restore a damaged tooth or to create a lifelike tooth replacement for an implant, crowns can be fabricated in dental laboratories or in your dentist's office, depending on the crown material.

Part of your dental crown consultation may involve taking impressions of your existing tooth (or teeth) as a basis for creating the shape and size of your crown restoration(s). If dental crowns will be used as part of a smile makeover, these impressions are used to make models for designing the new length, shape and alignment of your teeth, so that you can preview your new smile before committing to treatment.

Your dentist also will describe the tooth preparation process, as well as your options with regard to local anesthesia (to numb your teeth and surrounding areas). If your dental crown treatment involves placement of a temporary crown, We will advise you of how long you will need to have the temporary in place and what hygiene steps to take to ensure functionality.

A fitted, temporary crown is created during this visit to temporarily protect the tooth while the final restoration is being made in the dental laboratory. Once completed, the tooth crown is cemented or adhesively bonded at a later visit.
