What Are Tooth Crowns and Bridges?

Tooth crowns and bridges are dental restorations that protect a compromised or weak tooth or replace a missing tooth. We offer conventional as well as implant-supported crowns and dental bridges in South Sacramento.

If you have a tooth that has received root canal therapy, has a large filling, or is worn, then a traditional tooth crown may be the solution you're looking for. Our conventional crowns are customized to protect your tooth and blend evenly with your smile. Dental bridges consist of artificial teeth, known as pontics, suspended between a crown at the beginning and end of the bridge. The crowns fit over your existing teeth, and the bridge recreates your full bite pattern.

Our implant-supported restorations are unique because they replace the entire tooth from root to crown. Dental implants consist of an implant post, an abutment, and prosthetic teeth. The implant post is permanent because it fuses with your jawbone, and the abutment holds the prosthetic in place.

Benefits of Crowns and Dental Bridges in South Sacramento

You already know how a compromised or missing tooth creates difficulties in your daily life, including how you chew food and how you feel about your smile. Our dental crowns and bridges bring an array of benefits that you can enjoy, from the functionality of your dental structures to protecting your teeth from decay. Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy with our crowns and dental bridges:

  • Protect a weak or worn tooth from further damage

Our Dental Crown and Bridge Process

Restoring your smile can seem daunting, but when you have the right dental team cheering you on, it can be a positive experience. That's why we are passionate about providing comprehensive dental services so you can enjoy consistent, quality care under one roof. Our team takes the time to get to know you. We ask questions and listen intently to understand your concerns and needs.

We begin with a thorough exam, complete with detailed scans and precise measurements, to ensure we have a clear picture of your unique oral health needs. Our dentists will review the results of the exam with you and present your treatment options.

If you select conventional tooth crowns or bridges, then we will send the information to a trusted lab where your dental restoration is created. We carefully shape your natural teeth to secure the crown or bridge, then place a temporary crown. Creating your restoration takes about 10-14 days, and once we have received your crown or dental bridge, we'll schedule an appointment for your final fitting. During this appointment, we check to ensure your dental restoration fits comfortably. We artfully match your crown or bridge to the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth for a beautifully blended smile.

Implant-Supported Crowns and Bridges

For those who choose an implant-supported crown or dental bridge, we provide the full scope of dental services to rejuvenate your smile. If your exam reveals that you need pretreatments such as extractions or bone grafts, then we will include those in your custom treatment plan. We use modern technology like computer-guided surgery to strategically place the implant post. Once you have healed from the procedure and the titanium post has fused with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration, you'll return to our office, and we will secure your new custom tooth crown or dental bridge.
