Dental crowns and bridges use the support of natural teeth to help restore a damaged tooth or replace missing teeth with a permanent restoration that restores the function and enhances the appearance of your smile.

How Do Dental Crowns Work?

Dental crowns act as caps to cover a tooth for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Protects or restores a fractured tooth
  • Replace a filling if there is not enough tooth remaining
  • Used to attach bridgework
  • Change the shape or color of a tooth

To attach a crown to an existing tooth, the tooth is decreased in size to make room for the crown. An impression of the tooth is taken and sent to a lab where the crown is fabricated. The dentist will ensure that the crown also matches the shade of your natural teeth. Once the crown is made, it is attached to the tooth with a strong adhesive. The crown will function and look just like your natural teeth. You can also care for the crown as you normally do with brushing and flossing.

How Do Dental Bridges Work?

Do you have a tooth that has been damaged due to decay, fracture or advanced gum disease? In the case that it can not be saved, your dentist might recommend replacing the tooth with a crown and bridge restoration. It’s important to replace missing teeth because leaving a gap in your smile can cause neighboring teeth to shift out of place which only creates further dental problems. It can cause uneven wear on those teeth as well as jaw misalignment. With a crown and bridge restoration, however, you can maintain your dental health as well as restore the look of your smile.

Benefits of Bridgework

To replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, bridgework will fill the gap in your smile using a replacement tooth anchored on either side by crowns for teeth, called abutment teeth. The bridge is permanently attached, and creates a strong and durable fit. The benefits of dental bridges include:

  • Ability to chew food as you would with natural teeth
  • Restore clear speech which can be compromised due to a missing tooth
  • Maintain your facial structure
  • Regain a confident smile
  • Keep your natural teeth from shifting out of position

I made my first phone call, and Connie was so nice and informative. They did not accept my insurance, so I went to a place at Dort and Atherton that did..... Bad move on my part. A little while into my 2 hour wait/appointment I made the phone call back over to Dr Bundy office and talked to Connie again, I asked if I could come over to them and pay out of pocket instead....... She said come on over now. I up and left and no one said a word at the other place. I felt so comfortable as soon as I walked into the waitingroom. Both girls behind the counter greeted me with a hello and a smile. Jen came and lead me to the room that I would meet my New dentist! All I can say is they took great care of me when I was in desperate need. Thank you so much!
