What is a Dental Crown & Bridge?

A dental crown is a custom-made cap that’s bonded over the entire visible surface of a tooth. Often, it’s used to repair a damaged tooth, such as one that has a large area of decay or a fracture. Now, they also hold a commonplace in cosmetic dentistry to cover imperfections because they look natural.

Crowns aren’t always used alone. In fact, they are often used along with a bridge. A bridge is a traditional solution to replace 1 to 3 consecutive missing teeth. Crowns are placed on the adjacent teeth to hold it in place.

What Are They Made Of?

How Does a Crown & Bridge Replace Missing Teeth?

Dr. Castleberry takes an impression of your mouth to replicate the teeth you’ve lost. The bridge closes the gap between your remaining teeth to improve your confidence while also making it easier to chew a variety of foods. The bridge is secured in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. By maintaining your oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly, your new smile will last for an average of 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced.

Do I Have Other Tooth Replacement Options?

Although a crown and bridge are effective, they only replace the portions of your teeth above the gum line. You can enjoy the next best thing to your real teeth with dental implants. Implant posts mimic the roots to secure your crown or bridge to your jawbone. You’ll enjoy a solution that looks and feels natural while also having the potential to last for a lifetime.
