Restorative Dental Crowns & Bridges

A dental crown is placed over a weakened or broken tooth to restore its natural appearance and prevent further damage. They are commonly used to restore chipped or broken teeth, cover exposed teeth following surgery, or replace fillings. Crowns provide a long-term solution to restoring the function and appearance of damaged teeth. They are typically made of all metal, porcelain, or a combination of both. Our Tamarac and Plantation offices specialize in tooth crowns to get your smile back on track! Since crowns are custom-made, they can take multiple appointments to complete.

During your first visit, the dentist uses a handpiece to shape the tooth before taking impressions. A temporary crown is usually placed to protect the tooth while the final crown is being created. The impressions are used to fabricate a model of your mouth and develop the final crown. The crown is then cemented into the tooth, restoring it to a healthy and functioning state! Our adult dentistry team is here to guide you through everything from the first exam to post-procedure care. Dental crowns and bridges have many benefits:

  • Improved chewing
  • Stronger and healthier teeth
  • No more pain or sensitivity
  • Enjoy your new smile!

Looking to schedule a consultation at our Tamarac or Plantation office? We have years of experience in the application and maintenance of restorative crowns and bridges; schedule an appointment with one of our specialists today! We will conduct an oral exam to determine which procedure is right for you. Restorative crowns are a solution for teeth that are cracked, chipped, decaying, or deformed; porcelain crowns are typically applied with a metal base, replacing damaged teeth to show off a more even and appealing smile.

What to Expect When Getting a Dental Crown

Our Plantation and Tamarac services include dental crown and bridge application. A bridge consists of an artificial tooth connected to a set of crowns used to fill a gap created by one or more missing teeth. Your dentist will create a custom bridge for your mouth that will look and function like your natural teeth. The area is numbed and a handpiece is used to prepare the neighboring teeth that will support the bridge.

Next, impressions are taken of the prepared teeth and a temporary bridge is placed to protect the teeth. The impressions are used to fabricate a model of your mouth on which the final bridge is made. The final bridge is then cemented and anchored to the neighboring teeth, so you do not have to worry about removing or repositioning the bridge once it is cemented in your mouth. With proper maintenance, oral hygiene, and exams, bridges and crowns can last for several years.
