Crowns & Bridges

Aesthetic Restorations in San Diego

If you’ve lost one or more teeth or need a little TLC after root canal therapy or a restoration, think smart; think preservation. We provide beautiful crowns and bridges to the patients in our community.

Crowns can be used with dental implants, dental bridges, or on their own to repair tooth decay or a dental injury. Dental bridges can restore a bite to improve your quality of life.

Depending on your unique needs, a dental implant, dental bridge, or single-tooth crown may be right for you. Schedule an appointment with us today! We can walk you through what to expect, so you can make the best decision for your smile.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown or “cap” is a protective tooth covering made of strong porcelain or ceramic. Placed just over the surface of the tooth or joined to a dental bridge or implant, dental crowns blend in with your natural smile to restore damaged or missing teeth. These beautiful restorations give you a functional new smile!

A dental crown may be beneficial for you if you hope to recover from tooth loss, restore a damaged or broken tooth, reshape an irregular tooth, or need a protective covering after a root canal.

Benefits of Crowns

  • Restore chewing force after tooth decay or damage.
  • Improve the strength and shape of a tooth.
  • May help you avoid a tooth extraction.
  • Preserve more of your original tooth structure.

Our CEREC Same-Day Crowns Process

That’s right! With advanced CEREC technology, we can mill your custom dental crown in our own office in just minutes — without waiting on a dental lab. Not only will you get to avoid a goopy impression, but you won’t need a temporary crown either. It’s less mess, less stress, and all the benefits of dental crowns customized for your needs.

Have you ever heard of same-day dentistry or one day crowns? Our CEREC crowns process is easy to understand and even easier to experience for yourself!

At your appointment we’ll capture a goop-free, 3D impression of your teeth to map out the best size, shape and fit of your new dental crown with precision CEREC technology. Watch our CEREC milling machine custom build your dental crown from strong porcelain or composite resin. Then enjoy your new smile after we place your very own CEREC crown!

What Is a Dental Bridge?

If you’ve lost one or more teeth, a dental bridge may be recommended to “bridge” the gap between adjacent teeth and fill the empty space with replacement teeth: lifelike dental crowns. Your replacement tooth is secured in place with a set of beautiful crowns, so your smile can have a new, beautiful touch as well as a restored bite!

Dental bridges are often chosen for their high success rate and resistance to moving or slipping out of place. When recovering from tooth loss, they are considered an ideal nonsurgical dental option, which is a key benefit for many patients.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • A fully functional bite!
  • Clearer speech.
  • A new, beautiful smile!
