Restore Your Smiling Confidence With Crown & Bridge Treatment

At Brighter Smile in Jefferson Park, Chicago, we know that dental crowns and bridges are two common restorative prostheses that rejuvenate the function and appearance of teeth that have been damaged by injury, decay, or wear and tear.

While a dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that encases an entire tooth above the gum line, a dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth and uses the surrounding existing teeth as anchors for the bridge.

How are dental crowns & bridges made and how do they benefit smiles?

Both dental crowns and bridges are generally made from porcelain, metal alloys, or a combination of the two materials.

A dental crown is placed over an existing tooth to provide strength and prevent further damage. The preparation process for a dental crown involves reshaping the existing tooth to make room for the new cover, then taking an impression of the tooth and making a cast of the impression. Finally, the restorative crown is placed on the tooth and cemented in place.

A dental bridge involves creating a false tooth that is attached to two dental crowns on either side. The bridge is held in place with the crowns, which are also cemented to existing teeth, and supports the false tooth in place.

What are the benefits of dental crowns & bridges?

Dental crowns and bridges offer many advantages, including restoring the function of your teeth to make it easier to chew food, speak clearly, and maintain a healthy diet. They also provide a natural-looking cosmetic solution for replacing missing teeth and can help prevent further damage to existing teeth.

Who is an ideal candidate for dental crown & bridge treatment?

Most patients suffering from broken, decayed, or missing teeth can benefit from dental crowns and bridges. Of course, our team of dental experts will assess your individual needs before recommending a specific treatment plan.
