Dental Crowns and Bridges

Broken, severely damaged, or missing teeth can interfere with your smile and quality of life, and we at Clinton Family Dental are here to help. We are pleased to offer comprehensive restorative dentistry solutions, including dental crowns and bridges, to deliver healthy, confident smiles.

Dr. Jacobson and her team use high-quality materials to ensure your restorations last as long as possible and provide exceptional function. Your dental crown or bridge will match the color and texture of your teeth, blending in seamlessly with your smile. Whether you have a damaged tooth or you've been missing a tooth for some time, we have the solution for you!

Restoring Teeth with Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are custom "caps" that cover weak or damaged teeth to restore their strength and function. At Clinton Family Dental, we offer the best available crown materials, including zirconia, porcelain, and even gold in some cases.

The following are reasons Dr. Jacobson may recommend a dental crown:

  • To restore a tooth with severe decay
  • To keep a weak tooth from breaking
  • To repair a cracked or chipped tooth
  • To preserve a tooth after root canal therapy
  • To cover a dental implant or support a dental bridge
  • To improve the size, shape, or color of a tooth

Replacing Teeth with Dental Bridges

If you have lost one or more adjacent teeth but are not ready to commit to dental implants, your next best option is a fixed dental bridge. Your restoration consists of one or more replacement teeth supported by crowns placed on natural teeth on either side of the gap. Our team at Clinton Family Dental offers high-quality dental bridges made to match your smile.

Dental bridges offer numerous benefits, including the following:

  • They eliminate unsightly gaps
  • They restore beautiful, functional smiles
  • They make it easier to chew and speak
  • They keep the remaining teeth from shifting
  • They improve your oral health
  • They offer long-term strength and stability

What Is the Dental Crown and Bridge Placement Process?

The dental crown placement process typically starts with reshaping the affected tooth to ensure a snug and secure fit. Next is taking impressions of the area, providing a blueprint for our local dental lab to create your custom crown. Meanwhile, we'll place a temporary crown on the prepared tooth for protection.

The dental bridge process is similar to that of creating a dental crown. It involves preparing the teeth adjacent to the gap, known as abutment teeth, to accommodate crowns that will support your restoration. A temporary bridge will protect the prepared teeth.

During a follow-up appointment, Dr. Jacobson will ensure your permanent crown or bridge provides a perfect fit and match, then bond it to the prepared tooth or teeth. She will make any needed adjustments to ensure your comfort and optimal function. Your new crown or bridge will look and function just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, your restoration can enhance your smile for years to come!
