Dental Crowns & Bridges
Quality Dental Crowns & Bridges Cottonwood Heights
Crowns and bridges are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged. They can also be used to take the place of missing teeth. A crown (also referred to as a cap) is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. Not only does a crown strengthen a tooth, but it can improve the appearance, shape, and alignment.
Crowns may be used to:
- Replace a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Restore a fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
- Protects a tooth that has had root canal treatment
A bridge is an ideal method to fill the space created by missing teeth. A bridge is one or more artificial teeth cemented into place using the teeth on either side for support. This is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. Bridgework is as much an art as it is an exact science since the tooth replacement is both functional and cosmetic. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material made to match your natural tooth color. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and aesthetics.

Bridges and crowns are made by first taking an impression of your mouth. The impression is sent to a dental lab where your crown or bridge will be custom made to match your natural tooth color and fit your mouth. A temporary crown or bridge will be placed into your mouth until your permanent crown or bridge is ready and cemented into place. Bridges and crowns are very durable and can last a lifetime with extra care and good oral hygiene. When you need a crown, crown replacement, or a dental bridge, call Dr. Perkins as soon as possible. You don’t want to wait- it could possibly cause more issues.
