Show Off a Complete Smile With Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns and dental bridges are the workhorses of restorative dentistry. Your dentist can use them in a variety of ways to put your smile back in order and help preserve your oral health.

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that we can place over the top of a damaged tooth to help restore its function and appearance. It will give you back a complete smile and strong bite, Plus, it will help prevent further problems with the tooth. To place your crown, we will:

  • Take impressions with our iTero digital scanner
  • Send the information to our on-site milling machine
  • Make your new crown while you wait (no need to return to have your crown placed)
  • Position the crown, so it fits perfectly and blends in with your other teeth

A bridge will replace one or more missing teeth in a row. It will anchor on either end to your healthy teeth, with an artificial tooth or teeth in the middle. A bridge will fill in the gap in your smile and make biting and chewing easier.

You also have the option of anchoring your new crown or bridge to dental implants. Implants will replace a single missing tooth when used with a crown or replace several teeth in a row with a bridge. Unlike other kinds of replacement teeth, implants prevent bone loss in your jaw.
