CROWN & BRIDGE

Dental crown and bridge are necessary in cases where there is missing or damaged tooth structure. A crown covers the entire tooth. This restoration not only strengthens the tooth, but also improves the appearance, shape, and alignment. Crowns are made with a variety of materials including porcelain, metal alloys, porcelain fused to metal, and gold. 


A dental bridge uses connected crowns to restore one or more spaces created by a missing tooth. At least one crown on each side of the missing tooth is cemented, as well as a connected prosthetic tooth. 

PROCESS: 

Crowns can be used to restore a tooth that has had a root canal. In the case that a root canal was completed the first step is to fill the access hole from the root canal and to build the tooth back up. After the tooth is prepped a temporary crown will be made for the patient to wear while we make the permanent crown. Once finished the temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown cemented. 

INSURANCE:

On average most insured patients can expect to pay less than $500 for a crown. Discounts are available for uninsured patients who use our in-office plan.

PRICING:

Copayments start at around $400 with dental insurance.  Pricing includes preparation, the temporary crown, permanent crown, and permanent placement.
