Keep Your Teeth in Great Shape With a Variety of Restorations

Our dentists use versatile crowns and bridges in numerous ways to restore your smile’s health. They include:

  • Single Crowns – A natural-looking zirconia crown repairs and strengthens teeth that are decayed, cracked, or broken. If you’d prefer, we can use a gold crown instead. Crowns can also be used to hide cosmetic issues like deep stains, and we typically seal a tooth with a crown following a root canal.
  • Implant Crowns – We can attach a single crown to a single dental implant for a natural-looking tooth replacement. This option prevents you from losing bone density in your jaw.
  • Fixed Dental Bridges – You can use a bridge to fill gaps in your smile left by a single tooth or several teeth in a row. We’ll anchor a bridge to your adjacent teeth using dental crowns. Unlike a denture, you don’t need to remove a bridge for cleaning.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges – To avoid drilling into healthy teeth, we can attach a bridge to dental implants.

For less severe dental damage, we may recommend another restoration such as a filling or a veneer.

Common Questions About Dental Crowns & Bridges
How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

The average dental crown or bridge will last for approximately five to seven years. However, your restoration may give you great performance for 10 years or longer if you maintain good oral hygiene and avoid eating foods that compromise it. We’ll be happy to provide instructions on keeping your crown or bridge fully functional for as long as possible.

Will insurance cover dental crowns and bridges?

Most dental insurance plans do cover at least part of the cost of crowns and bridges. Typical coverage is 50 percent. We’ll help you research your policy and give you an estimate of any out-of-pocket costs you may owe. You can use several kinds of payment for these expenses, including CareCredit financing.

What can dental crowns and bridges be used for?

Dental crowns and bridges are versatile dental restorations that provide our patients with many types of teeth repair. A crown by itself will cap a damaged tooth and strengthen it. Or it can be used with an implant to replace a tooth. Likewise, bridges can be used either by themselves or with dental implants.
