Your smile is a living entity that needs care, attention, and treatment, just like the rest of your body does. While your teeth are naturally hard and strong, they are still susceptible to damage like cracks or cavities. When this type of damage happens, dental crowns can help! Call us today to see how crowns can protect your smile.
How Porcelain Crowns and Bridges Can Help
Porcelain crowns and bridges can help to restore damaged or missing teeth, improving both the function and appearance of your smile. Crowns are often used to cover a tooth that has been weakened or damaged by decay, injury, or root canal treatment.
Bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring to the surrounding teeth or dental implants.
What Is a Dental Crown?
The most common solution to a problem involving one at-risk tooth is a dental crown. A dental crown is a dental restorative device that is created to cover up the injured or diseased tooth. They are bonded to the tooth they are covering so they stay firmly in place.
The dental crown is designed and shaped to look exactly like a natural tooth. With most materials, the color can also be matched to your smile which leaves your smile looking and feeling 100% natural
What Is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are a popular dental treatment option for individuals who have one or more missing teeth. Bridges are designed to fill in the gaps created by missing teeth, restoring both the function and appearance of your smile.
A dental bridge is composed of two or more crowns that are anchored to the surrounding teeth or dental implants, with a pontic (artificial tooth) in between.
Advantages of Porcelain Dental Crowns and Bridges

How Much Do Dental Crowns and Bridges Cost?
These two services will have different costs because crowns are more durable and last longer than bridges but both can be supported with dental implants, which can add to the price. Since these treatments are restorative, dental insurance should cover a large portion of the cost.
If you do not have dental insurance, you can call our office to find out how we can help you afford these two life-changing treatments. To help patients feel more comfortable with paying for treatments, we do offer free cosmetic dentistry consultations.
During your consultation, you will receive a good estimate of the cost of your crown or bridge. You’ll know what to expect before you get treatment, and you can plan accordingly. Schedule a free consultation with our dental office today to see if dental crowns or bridges are right for you!
Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?
In certain circumstances, your teeth can easily break—from something you eat, from playing a sport, or from an internal weakness that makes your tooth already susceptible to breaking. You might also get cavities, which happen when tiny holes or openings form in your teeth, allowing bacteria and germs to enter.
When a cavity gets bad enough, it could cause a tooth infection. The same goes for a badly cracked tooth. However, both types of damage can generally be fixed with the same treatment: dental crowns.
You’ll finally be able to smile and eat without any gaps in the way! Protect your alignment and oral health when you get a dental crown. If you get dental implants to support the crown then you are also strengthening your jaw and allowing for a rootlike function to give you a strong foundation for your crown.
