Frequently asked Questions:
Porcelain Crowns & Bridge Work

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is more like a cap that completely covers the visible part of your natural tooth or implant. Dental crowns are usually made of ceramic or porcelain, which gives them a more natural appearance, although there are dental crowns made of  metal alloys such as gold or even stainless steel.

Why do people need dental crowns?

There are quite a few dental problems that dental crowns can solve. People often get dental crowns to strengthen and protect a damaged tooth, to stabilize a tooth after a root canal, or to improve their smile in general. Dental crowns are also used with dental implants.

How Do Dental Bridges Work?

Dental bridges are restorative structures used to replace missing teeth that may have been lost to trauma, dental decay, extraction, or age. During the procedure, your dentist will use dental crowns to “bridge” the space between the teeth you may be missing. These days, bridges are usually made from porcelain so that they can be shaded to look like your natural teeth.

Can You Replace a Dental Bridge?

In short, yes — you can replace a dental bridge. If your bridge has significant chipping, breakage, or comes off completely, then your dentist may want to replace it with a brand new one. However, a replacement bridge typically won’t last as long as the first one. If you want a more permanent option that will last longer, dental implants are typically recommended as a far better tooth replacement option.
