At Lakeside Dental & Wellness, our dentist and dental team are skilled in these restorative treatments and have the artistic eye to provide esthetically attractive outcomes while returning function to your tooth.

Dental crowns and bridges are effective restorations when teeth are lost or severely damaged. Our crowns and bridges look natural and offer much-needed assistance with chewing and speaking. We use high-quality materials in our crowns and bridges to ensure the restorations last as long as possible and provide exceptional performance.

We ensure your dental crowns and bridges blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth and will function like natural teeth. You can expect to make a minimum of two visits when receiving dental crowns or bridges. We use the first visit to make impressions of your teeth and then send those impressions to a dental laboratory. Once the crown or bridge is ready, you can return to have it fitted and ensure it fits properly.

  • What is a dental crown?

    Dental crowns are fixed “caps” that cover your teeth to restore strength and beauty. We generally recommend crowns when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be treated with bonding or composite fillings.

    Dental crowns have many applications. The first is to be installed over a damaged tooth to cap the existing structure, which restores the damaged tooth so it can be used normally. Crowns can also be attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth; these implants will be surgically inserted into the jawbone and serve as the root for the tooth. This procedure keeps the crown steady and secure.

    Dental crowns may also be used to provide extra support for dental bridges. They do not require special treatment and can be brushed and flossed as normal.

  • What is a dental bridge?

    Dental bridges are commonly used when a patient has lost one or more teeth. They are called bridges because they consist of one or more replacement teeth that bridge the gap that was created when the original teeth became lost. Dental bridges can be secured using abutment crowns on each end or by using permanently installed precision metal mechanisms. To ensure a comfortable and seamless fit, we take impressions of the area. These will be used by experienced technicians at our partner dental lab who will handcraft your restoration.

  • How do temporary dental crowns work?

    There are a few steps your dentists will follow in putting on a dental crown. Crowns typically begin with an impression of your upper and lower dental arches to create a replica of your teeth so a permanent crown will fit securely on the base of the tooth without letting any bacteria enter underneath the tooth structure.

    Most dentists take this impression and send it to a dental laboratory for the permanent dental crown to be built. To get the impression correct for the permanent dental crown, they must shape the tooth base below it, which could leave your tooth vulnerable in the short period between the impression being made and the permanent dental crown being delivered. Temporary dental crowns ensure your tooth is protected during this period.
