Understanding dental bridges and crowns

A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a tooth-shaped prosthetic placed over an existing tooth to bolster its shape, size, health, and appearance. Restoring the tooth to its pre-damage self, a dental crown ensures that your tooth functions and looks just like a natural tooth, if not better.

A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is preferred by patients who still have some remaining teeth, as the bridge secures itself on the adjacent teeth (called abutment teeth).

The abutment teeth require preparation to provide optimal support for your dental bridge. This preparation includes removing a bit of the enamel to accommodate dental crowns. Finally, a dental bridge fills the gap between two healthy teeth, supported by neighboring teeth secured with crowns.

One-visit dentistry: We offer CEREC dental bridges and crowns

Traditionally, restoring your smile with bridges and crowns requires two or more visits. With CEREC technology, we can design, create, and place your restoration in one appointment! What does this mean for you? Faster and more comfortable dentistry.

CEREC restorations are possible in a single appointment because of the CAD/CAM technology, which stands for computer-assisted design/manufacturing. Our CAD unit designs your crown in minutes based on your digital impressions. The CAM technology allows us to fabricate your restoration using our in-house milling machine. Instead of fabricating your crown or bridge in an offsite lab, your restorations are created right here in the office, saving you multiple dental trips. 

Once we have your restoration, we make a few adjustments to ensure an optimal fit and alignment. The final step is to use dental cement to secure the restoration to your teeth.
