What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that, as the name indicates, simply sits on top of a natural tooth. It can be designed to resemble a real tooth in every way, both aesthetically and functionally, in order to restore harmony and balance to a compromised smile.
With a dental crown, our team can:
- Repair a cavity that is too large for a filling
- Rebuild a broken tooth
- Hold a weakened tooth together
- Even out a misaligned bite
- Cosmetically enhance a misshapen tooth
- Replace a missing tooth using a dental implant
Dental crowns can be made of a variety of materials depending on a patient’s preferences and the location of the tooth that needs to be repaired. Typically, the back teeth are topped with all-metal crowns because they need to be extremely strong, while the front teeth usually receive 100% porcelain crowns because they have a more lifelike appearance.
What is a Dental Bridge?
While crowns are intended to help teeth that are still present within the smile, bridges can actually fill in the gaps left by one or more missing teeth. To do this, our team places crowns on the teeth on either side of the missing ones, and these are used to support the replacement teeth that close the space.
With a well-designed bridge, we can:
- Restore the appearance of the smile
- Bring balance back to the bite
- Protect the gums from infection
- Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting into the space
Like with a crown, a bridge can be made from different materials based on a patient’s specific needs. They can even be secured using dental implants if a patient doesn’t have enough healthy dental structure to support a regular one.
How Much Does a Dental Crown or Bridge Cost?
The cost of these restorations can vary depending on a few determining factors, namely what material the restoration is made out of and where in the mouth it will be located. Typically, dental insurance can be used to cover at least a portion of these procedures, often at least 50%. We can help you go over your benefits so you know exactly what you’ll be expected to pay out of pocket before we begin treatment. And, if you currently do NOT have insurance, we offer flexible financing as well.
