Dental crowns and bridges are made by a dental technician that uses the mold of your teeth to determine the exact shape and size of the restoration. The process usually only takes a few weeks to create to help you look your best with your new smile.

The longevity of a dental crown or bridge depends mostly on the dental health and hygiene habits of the patient. Routine exams and cleanings as well as brushing and flossing regularly will help keep your smile looking great for years to come.

A dental crown or bridge can help in many different scenarios. Here are a few that may apply to your case:

  • A crown can cover and secure a tooth that has cracked or chipped.
  • A darkened or discolored tooth that doesn't respond to whitening treatments will look bright, smooth, and polished after a dental crown is added.
  • A dental bridge will fill in spaces caused by lost or extracted teeth.
  • A dental crown will shore up a tooth that is vulnerable after root canal therapy.
