Crowns and Bridges
If you have broken or missing teeth, our porcelain crowns and bridges are an optimal solution for restoring your smile. Crafted by hand, each restoration provides maximum integrity and aesthetics for the best result.
Crowns and bridges have been used in dentistry for years, but it’s also common for us to combine them with modern implant designs for long-term tooth replacement needs.
What is a Dental Crown?
Crowns — sometimes called “caps” — are protective covers that slip over a prepped tooth. They’re used in situations where there is extensive tooth decay, prior root canal therapy, or to top off a dental implant.
What is a Dental Bridge?
Bridges are tooth replacement treatments that look like 3-4 crowns adjoined side-by-side. The end crowns slip over supporting teeth (or implants) while the pontic crowns between them suspend over the open space where your teeth are missing.
The Treatment Process
Ooralea Dental Care uses the latest technology to ensure a comfortable experience and accurate fit. We aim for your new crown or bridge to blend in with the rest of your smile, both cosmetically and functionally.
The average crown or bridge treatment takes about two separate appointments to complete. Contact our office today to request an exam to learn more.
