A Crown or Bridge Reverses All Kinds of Dental Damage

One of the most common uses for a dental crown is to repair cavities that are too large for a simple filling. If we need something between a filling and a crown to fix dental decay, Dr. Patten can use an inlay or an onlay, restorations that cover the entire top surface and/or sides of your tooth. We also use a crown to:

  • Seal your tooth and protect it from further damage following a root canal
  • Repair broken and cracked teeth so you don’t lose them
  • Conceal cosmetic problems like deep stains and misshapen teeth
  • Replace a single missing tooth by attaching it to a dental implant

A dental bridge can replace one lost tooth or several missing teeth in a row. Unlike dentures, a fixed bridge doesn’t need to come out for cleaning. We attach a bridge to crowns on either side of the gap you want to fill. The realistic-looking replacement teeth “bridge” the space between the crowns. A bridge is is attached to your own teeth or, to avoid removing healthy tooth structure, it can be anchored to dental implants instead.

Common Questions About Dental Crowns and Bridges

Are dental crowns permanent?

Crowns are not intended to be a lifelong restoration. The average dental crown will last for approximately five to seven years. However, your restoration may give you great performance for 10 years or longer if you maintain good oral hygiene and avoid eating foods that compromise it. We’ll be happy to provide you instructions on how to keep your crown fully functional for as long as possible.

Will my insurance cover crowns?

Many dental insurance plans will cover at least a portion of your treatment using crowns and bridges, usually half. We recommend you check with your insurance carrier to determine exactly what is and isn’t covered before you begin treatment. That way you’ll know your exact cost, and there won’t be any surprises in store.

How does a dental bridge work?

A dental bridge is made up of a single false tooth (called a pontic) or several teeth suspended between dental crowns. There are two different ways to support your dental bridge. We can put crowns on the teeth surrounding the gap in your smile, or, if you’d rather avoid reshaping those teeth to support crowns, we can instead attach the bridge to dental implants.
