Crowns and Bridges

A misconception about Crowns and Bridges

One common misconception about dental bridges is that they are uncomfortable and feel unnatural in the mouth. However, with advances in dental technology, dental bridges can now be designed to fit comfortably and blend seamlessly with natural teeth.
Not only does the staff have many years of experience, but they also remain on the cutting edge of dental technology. Their expertise and experience allow them to help the most apprehensive patients feel relaxed. The whole Whittier Dental Center team cares for patients of all ages, always providing excellent results.

Dental bridges and crowns can be an excellent alternative if you have damaged or missing teeth. Dental bridges and crowns are restorations that can improve your teeth’ appearance, function, and health.

Restore Your Smile with Dental Bridges and Crowns

Dental crowns are custom-made caps that fit over your existing teeth to restore their shape, size, and strength. They are commonly used to repair teeth that are broken, chipped, or weakened due to decay or injury. Crowns are also used to cover teeth that are discolored or misshapen, improving the appearance of your smile.

Say Goodbye to Damaged or Missing Teeth with Bridges and Crowns

Dental bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace missing teeth. They consist of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) anchored to the remaining natural teeth on either side of the gap. The natural teeth serve as supports (abutments) for the bridge, holding it securely.

Dental bridges and crowns offer several benefits. They can help restore the function and strength of damaged or missing teeth, allowing you to chew and speak quickly. They also improve the appearance of your teeth and smile, giving you a more youthful and attractive appearance. Additionally, bridges and crowns can prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting out of place and maintain the proper alignment of your teeth.

What are Crowns and Bridges?

A dental crown, or a "cap," is a tooth-shaped covering made of materials like porcelain, metal, or a combination of both. It is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Crowns can also improve the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth. A dental bridge, on the other hand, replaces one or more missing teeth by attaching an artificial tooth or teeth to neighboring teeth. The neighboring teeth are usually fitted with dental crowns to support the bridge. The artificial tooth, called a pontic, is made of materials like porcelain, metal, or a combination of both and is designed to match the color and shape of the natural teeth. Crowns and bridges are custom-made to fit the patient's teeth and bite. They are cemented in place and can be cared for like natural teeth with regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups.

What can I Expect when Getting Crowns or Bridges?

Our dentist first takes an impression of your teeth and sends it to the dental lab, where a team of specialists creates your custom crown or bridge. You wear a temporary crown or bridge until your next appointment. When your crown or bridge is ready, your dentist makes sure that it properly fits. Once it feels comfortable, he uses dental cement to glue the crown in place permanently.
