Crown & Bridge

We would love for you to contact us and let us help you get your smile back.

A Great Smile is a Healthier You!

Why Do You Need A Crown Or Bridge?

Our goal at the Dental Implant Aesthetic Center is to provide crowns, bridges, and restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. We work closely with our lab, CadTech, to assure the best quality, fit, and color.

When damage to a person’s teeth is extreme and beyond repair, we can use porcelain crowns & bridges to renew your natural smile. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe dental problems. A dental bridge is used to permanently replace missing teeth, to offer a complete smile, and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology.

How long does it take to get a dental crown or bridge?

Preparing for a crown or bridge requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth or teeth, and fit you with a temporary crown or bridge. This office visit normally takes 1-2 hours.

On the next visit, we will remove the temporary and fit the final crown or bridge. Once the restoration is properly adjusted, we will cement the new crown or bridge into place, renewing your natural smile.

Dental Crown and Bridge Restoration

If you’ve suffered the effects of gum disease or cavities, you might be seeking a way to get your smile back and protect the rest of your teeth and gums. The good news is that improving your oral health is possible, and dental crowns and bridges can offer the solution.

Each does a different job, and depending on the state of your mouth, one might be a better choice than the other. Here are a few things to know about each option.

Dental Crowns: Fixing Damaged Teeth

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that’s placed over a damaged tooth. If your tooth is cracked, weak or otherwise damaged, getting a permanent crown put in place can help protect what’s left of the tooth and allow it to keep your bite strong. Crowns are often put in place after root canals, and they can be the ideal solution to protect your natural teeth from further damage.

A permanent crown needs to be custom-made for your mouth. While you’re waiting for the crown to be crafted, the dentist may put a temporary crown in place. Once the permanent crown is ready, the dentist removes the temporary crown and installs it. The crown prevents bacteria from accessing the weak remaining portion of the tooth. If done right, a dental crown is a great long-term solution.

Dental Bridges: Replacing Missing Teeth

If you’ve already lost a tooth, a dental bridge is sometimes the right choice. These can be more complicated than dental crowns because dental bridges require other natural teeth or implants to support the bridge and protect your bite. A bridge replaces missing teeth, and a bridge may be anchored by crowns on natural teeth or dental implants.

Often, a dental bridge can be just as strong than your natural teeth as long as your jaw is capable of supporting it. It is important to protect your dental health and to have a dentist you trust who can discuss the risks and benefits of treatment with dental bridges.

How Can Dental Crowns and Bridges Benefit You?

Taking care of your new crown or bridge by brushing and flossing regularly, will protect your teeth for years to come. Crowns and bridges aren’t a substitute for proper dental care, but when used in conjunction with best dental practices, they serve as long-term protection for your teeth.

When I lost my tooth, I didn’t want to show my smile. Dr. Felton explained the implant process in a way that I could really understand and I was confident that I had come to the right place.  She placed my implant and my new tooth gave me back the confidence to smile again.

We’ve been going to Dr. Schulter for at least 30 years. I’ve had a broad range of services completed at the Dental Implant Aesthetic Center, from cleanings, to crowns, and dental implants. In 2012, I fell and damaged several of my front teeth. I was able to get on the schedule for an emergency visit…
