What is A Crown/Bridge?

Dental crowns, often referred to as a `caps,’ are fixed prosthetic restorations used for several reasons such as:

  • Restore broken teeth
  • Protect weak teeth
  • Prevent cracked teeth from breaking further
  • Support teeth with large restorations
  • When a tooth has sustained a large enough cavity, much of its strength is lost and it’s too fragile for daily use. Instead of extracting the tooth, a crown can be placed over it

A Bridge is similar to a crown, however the main difference is that a bridge is used to help replace missing teeth. A bridge is usually two crowns that hold on to a `dummy` tooth in the middle. This `dummy“ tooth sits right  on the gum line to appear as natural as possible. Bridges may also in some case be used as an alternative to dental implants.

Crowns and bridges are made from numerous types of materials such as metal alloys, ceramics, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or composite resin. When crowns and bridges are made, the materials are closely matched to the natural tooth colour to blend in as best as possible. With proper care, crowns and bridges can last 10-15 years, and longer in some cases.

Crowns and bridges are generally completed in two visits. The first visit consists of preparing the tooth intended for crown/bridge, followed by impressions (molds), which are then sent to a laboratory to create the crown/bridge. The second appointment is when the permanent crown/bridge is cemented using a special glue made specifically for the use of cementing crowns and bridges to ensure its stability. When affixed, the crown/bridge fully encases the portion of the damaged tooth/teeth that sits above the gum line. Crowns and bridges are custom made to fit over each tooth.

What Are The Benefits Of A Crown/Bridge?

  • Restores smile
  • Restore the ability to properly chew and speak
  • Maintain the face shape
  • Distribute the forces in the bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

How Much Does A Crown/Bridge Cost?

Most insurance companies cover a portion of a crown or bridge under restorative services. A single crown can range between $1000-$1500. A Bridge can range between $2000-$5000. 0% interest monthly payment plans are available for patients to take advantage of for extensive treatment.
