What are Crowns?

Dental crowns are fixed dental restorations that we use to repair decayed or damaged teeth. We cement the crown over your tooth to restore its shape, size, look, and function. Crowns are also used to cap dental implants in cases of tooth loss. Our crowns are made from high-quality porcelain to recreate the natural strength and beauty of your existing enamel.

Our dentists recommend crowns to restore teeth in a variety of cases, such as:

  • To protect a weakened tooth or hold a fractured tooth together
  • To restore a broken or worn tooth
  • To restore a tooth in cases of severe damage or decay
  • To improve the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth
  • To anchor a dental bridge

What are Bridges?

If you are living with the loss of one or more permanent teeth, our dentists may recommend a dental bridge. A bridge fills the gap left behind after the loss of one or more missing teeth to restore the health of your smile and your bite. Bridges are created by using two or more crowns on either side of the gap (called abutments) and crowns in between (called pontics). Once placed, your dental bridge will help preserve the alignment of your surrounding teeth and distribute the forces of your bite evenly. This not only restores your smile but it also helps ensure the health of your surrounding teeth, preventing unnecessary damage caused by an uneven bite.

How long do Crowns and Bridges last?

With great at-home hygiene and regular checkups at your local Chesterfield dental office, your crown or bridge will last many years before needing to be replaced. The average crown or bridge can last up to 15 years. Be sure to brush twice and floss daily and schedule regular cleanings to keep your smile healthy.
