If you have a tooth that has been damaged by decay or an oral injury, a dental crown can restore and protect its structure. Dental crowns can also be used to create a dental bridge and replace one of more missing teeth. Together, crowns and bridges are effective, versatile options for patients looking to restore a wide range of issues.

The crown placement process is minimally-invasive and only takes two appointments. To begin the process, one of our Flossy partnered dentists will numb and clean the area. Sedation may be administered, if you choose to help keep you comfortable and avoid any anxiety.
Then, any damaged enamel is removed from your tooth to create a healthy, stable platform for your dental crown. Impressions and images are taken of your mouth and sent to an outside lab where a custom dental crown is made to match your teeth perfectly.
After this appointment, you'll be sent home with a temporary crown until your permanent restoration arrives at the dentist office. Once received, you will come back for an additional visit to place on your permanent crown and you will leave with a beautiful, fresh smile.
To begin the dental bridge treatment, your mouth will be numbed and your abutment teeth (the teeth on either side of the gap) will be prepared to receive the dental bridge. Impressions and images are then taken of your mouth and used to craft your customized bridge. Your dentist will then give you a temporary bridge to wear while your permanent restoration is manufactured.
When your permanent bridge arrives, your dentist will check to make sure that it fits perfectly, and bond it into place using powerful dental cement. After your final appointment, you will leave the office with a complete and confident smile.
