Understanding Dental Crowns and Bridges

At Ross Dental Studio, we recognize the impact that missing or damaged teeth can have on our patients’ lives. That’s why we’re committed to providing solutions like dental crowns and bridges to help you regain a complete, functional smile. Here’s a closer look at these restorative options.

The Basics of Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges offer a reliable solution for replacing or repairing missing or severely damaged teeth. Not only can they rejuvenate the appearance of your smile, but they also improve your ability to chew and speak.

A dental crown is recommended for teeth that are significantly weakened by large fillings, have undergone root canal therapy, or for enhancing aesthetics. It can be placed over an existing tooth or on a dental implant to fill the void left by a missing tooth.

Dental bridges are ideal when multiple teeth are missing. They consist of one or more prosthetic teeth that span the empty space, anchored in place by crowns on adjacent teeth or by specialized attachments for a secure fit.

Appearance and Functionality

Our dentists are dedicated to ensuring that your crowns and bridges not only match your natural teeth in appearance but also function effectively. Every component of a bridge is meticulously crafted to ensure a comfortable fit and a lifelike look.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Typically, fitting a crown or bridge involves two appointments. The initial visit allows the dentist to take precise impressions of your teeth, which a dental lab will use to create your custom-fit restoration. A temporary crown may be placed during this visit to protect the tooth.

When your crown or bridge is ready, you’ll return for a final fitting. This ensures the restoration fits perfectly before it is securely attached.
