Reveal The Full Power Of Your Smile With Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are crucial in achieving a radiant smile and maintaining optimal oral health at Premier Dentistry of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, FL. These versatile dental prosthetics are commonly used to repair damaged teeth and replace missing ones, offering functional and aesthetic benefits.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, often called "caps," are custom-made restorations designed to cover and protect damaged or weakened teeth. Depending on the patient's needs and preferences, they can be crafted from various materials, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of both.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are used to fill the gaps left by missing teeth. A bridge consists of two or more crowns placed on adjacent healthy teeth, with a false tooth (pontic) in between. This restores the smile's appearance and prevents neighboring teeth from shifting out of position.

How Are They Placed?

Our dentist will evaluate your oral health and discuss your treatment options during your initial visit. The damaged tooth is prepared for crowns by removing any decay and reshaping it to accommodate the crown. For bridges, the adjacent teeth are prepared to serve as anchor points for the restoration. Precise impressions of your teeth are taken to ensure that the crown or bridge fits. These impressions are sent to a dental laboratory for custom-made restorations. Once the permanent crown or bridge is ready, it is carefully fitted, adjusted, and cemented in place, ensuring a seamless blend with your natural teeth.

What Are Their Benefits?

  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Crowns and bridges are designed to mimic the appearance of natural teeth, providing a lifelike result.
  • Improved Functionality: These restorations restore proper chewing and speech, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and communicate effectively.
  • Preservation of Oral Health: Crowns protect weakened teeth from further damage, while bridges prevent adjacent teeth from shifting, maintaining the integrity of your bite.
  • Longevity: Dental crowns and bridges can last many years with proper care and maintenance.
