Crowns and bridges are prosthetic restorations. They are used to replace missing teeth, protect them, or to restore dental implants for optimum health and functionality of the smile. They are permanently placed with special bonding and are custom-made for patients using impressions of their natural teeth.
To maintain the integrity of these restorations, patients must properly care for them over the years to extend their longevity. Brushing and flossing is important, as is visiting the dental office for check-ups and examinations. Gum disease and tooth decay may still occur on the natural tooth underneath the bridge or crown, so regular visits to Kings Dental are needed to ensure oral health.
The process of receiving dental crowns and bridges includes a consultation, a preparation appointment, and a third visit when the restoration is placed. The entire process can take approximately one to two weeks.
Your crown and/or bridge will be an integral part of your life. It can enhance your smile, speech, and improve your chewing function. A beautiful smile boosts self-esteem and improves one’s sense of wellbeing.
A note of caution about prices…
We understand that people’s budgets are limited, but dental care is not an area where we recommend patients skimp, as with most things, you get what you pay for. Dental crowns can run as low as $700 while dental bridges typically cost $1700 or more. With proper care, crowns and bridges can last several years, maybe even a lifetime, so invest wisely.
