Doctor Tracy Davis on dental crowns and bridges
Crowns and bridges are a great way to restore teeth if they are broken down or perhaps they have a crack in them; just really making that tooth stable.
If we are protecting a single tooth, a crown or a porcelain cap can be put on a tooth to help protect it.
If a tooth is missing, a cemented bridge is a great way to restore that missing tooth as well. It is kind of like three crowns all together.
Both crowns and bridges really help to keep a tooth strong and helps to keep their occlusion and bite and function all working properly.

Repair Your Smile Using a New Crown or Bridge
A dental crown often serves as a building block for our restorative dentistry at Excel Dental. Used by itself, a crown will cover a damaged tooth or one repaired with root canal therapy. It will strengthen the tooth, help prevent further problems, and restore virtually all your ability to bite and chew.
To make a new crown, we’ll take digital impressions, which are more accurate than traditional impressions, plus you won’t have to deal with any goop in your mouth. We’ll use either an e.max crown or zirconia crown, depending on your needs and the location of the tooth.
We can combine two crowns and one or more replacement teeth to form a fixed bridge that will fill in the gaps in your smile. The crowns will provide an anchor for the bridge, securing on either end to your healthy teeth.
We can also replace missing teeth by using dental implants along with a crown or bridge. For a single missing tooth, we can secure a crown to an implant, creating a durable replacement tooth that will look completely natural. If you have several missing teeth, we can have a bridge made that will anchor to two or more implants.
If your tooth repair doesn’t require an entire crown – yet a standard tooth filling won’t work – then we may use an inlay or onlay to fix the damage. An inlay bonds to the top of a tooth between the cusps (tips), while an onlay also extends down the sides of a tooth.
