Dental Crowns & Bridges
We are pleased to offer a variety of Restorative Dentistry Services to our patients.
A crown is an aesthetic covering or a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over another tooth or implant to provide it stability. Crowns are generally used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. When a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth, a crown is a good option. Crowns are also used to restore the shape and size of chipped or damaged teeth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement.
We offer a wide variety in dental crowns and ensure you receive the best possible dental care from the minute you walk through our doors.
When is a dental crown required?
You might need a crown for any of the following circumstances:
- To cover discolored or misshapen teeth
- To support a tooth with a large filling
- To cover a dental implant
- To support a worn out, cracked or broken tooth
There are several types of Dental Crowns to choose from
In our office we offer several options of different materials for Dental Crowns. We offer porcelain, gold and semi-precious, Lava and Bruxir crowns, and Zirconia crown materials.

Crowns can now be finalized in just one visit! We can create a custom-fit, long-lasting, natural-colored porcelain crown in less than a day. There will be no more visits, and there will be no unattractive temporary crowns. Cosmetic dentistry is being influenced by technology in a variety of ways. CEREC® is one of these game-changing advancements. It allows you to replace damaged teeth in one visit with natural-colored ceramic fillings, saving you time and discomfort.
CEREC® is a CAD/CAM system that combines a camera, computer, and milling machine into one device. We take an exact photograph of the damaged tooth. This optical imprint is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where the restoration is designed using CAD (Computer-Aided Design) technology. Then, while you wait, CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) takes over and makes the restoration automatically. Finally, we attach the new crown to the old tooth's surface. It only takes roughly two hours to complete the process!
How does this help you?
No more discolored smiles with silver fillings. The filling is tooth-colored, compatible with oral tissue, non-abrasive, and plaque-resistant. Temporary crowns are not required, nor are impressions to be sent to a lab. CEREC® is backed by more than two decades of clinical study and documentation. The repairs have proven to be accurate, safe, and effective.
CEREC® has transformed the restoration process, and there are several benefits to using it. It was designed to make a dental appointment as painless as possible with the patient in mind. The following are some of the advantages of CEREC®:
- Most operations can be completed in one visit, making them less expensive and time-consuming.
- Because of the single-visit procedure, injections are less uncomfortable.
- There's no reason to make sloppy impressions.
- There's no requirement for a temporary restoration in-between visits.
- Possibility of preserving as much natural tooth structure as feasible
- Restorations that last longer – up to ten years
- Restores the natural appearance, function, and strength of your teeth.
- Restorations without the use of metal
Video: Crowns & Bridgework
Dental bridges are false permanent teeth that are used for filling dental gaps caused by missing teeth. They are usually anchored to the adjacent healthy teeth with cement and resin or metal bands. There are three types of dental bridges – fixed, cantilever, and resin bonded. The quality of the teeth, the position of the dental gap, and the condition of the teeth on the two sides of the gap decide which type of dental bridge is suitable to replace the missing teeth.
Different types of dental bridges are available in a wide budget range. As it is a safe way to substitute replacement teeth for a better denture profile, convenience, appropriateness, and proper fittings are essential pre-requisites for quality bridge fitting. The cost of Dental bridges may therefore vary depending on the material, position of the bridge placement, etc.
