Crowns and bridges is what we usually provide to patients that have weak teeth or missing teeth. In that case, it will just make their teeth stronger and replace their missing teeth, which it just overall improves the function of the mouth. The reasons that we put a crown would be if you have a fractured tooth or if you've had an endo-treated tooth. In that way, by putting a crown on a tooth, it just strengthens the tooth, and it makes sure that you're not losing that tooth. It just makes it stronger, and sometimes we use the crowns for aesthetics too.

Rebuild Your Tooth in One Day With CEREC Crowns
For centuries, humans have found ways to repair and replace damaged teeth. With the advances in restorative dentistry, crowns are better than previous teeth replacement options. Today’s crowns look natural and have the durability to last for decades. Crowns are used to fix a number of problems including decayed, cracked, and broken teeth. They also provide cosmetic benefits for people who have discolored, misshapen, and undersized teeth.
We’ve invested in CEREC same-day crowns to make your experience even better. CEREC crowns spare you from the hassle of making impressions. Instead of you gagging on a goo-filled tray, we take digital scans. Then we’ll:
- Use CAD/CAM technology to design your dental crown
- Turn a porcelain cube into a crown with our in-office milling machine
- Shade your crown to match the rest of your smile
- Secure the crown your mouth
In a couple of hours, you could leave our office with your final crown. This is a big improvement over the traditional process, which involves temporary crowns and waiting weeks for a dental lab to make and ship your permanent crown.
To make your crown, we need to reshape your damaged tooth. If you have any dental anxiety about this being painful, don’t worry. We will numb your tooth before we begin so you don’t feel any pain. We also offer dental sedation (laughing gas) for an added level of pain prevention.
Fill the Space in Your Smile
As common as broken and cracked teeth are, missing teeth are a widespread problem as well. According to expert estimates, more than 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Leaving that gap in your smile is not good for your self-confidence or your oral health. Additional tooth loss and changes to your bite are just a few of the issues that can develop over time.
Dental bridges have a long history of helping people fill that empty space between their remaining teeth. We also can use CEREC technology to make bridges that are durable and look natural. With a bridge, you provide support for your remaining teeth, and you regain a complete smile, which has practical and aesthetic benefits.
You can make your replacement teeth even stronger with dental implants. These are replacements for the roots of your lost teeth. We work with an oral surgeon, who places your implants in your jaw. When you have healed from the procedure (which takes around four months), we can attach a crown, bridge, or dentures depending on how many teeth you need to replace. With an implant-supported crown or bridge, your restorations are more secure and restore more of your biting and chewing power.
