Crowns & Bridges in Laguna Beach, CA

Are you a candidate for a dental crown?

A crown is a “cap” that is tooth-shaped. It is placed on top of a tooth to restore its function, shape, and size, and it can also improve the tooth’s aesthetics.

It may be needed to:

  • Protect a weak tooth or a cracked tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had a root canal
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Restore a broken or decayed tooth

What Are Dental Bridges Near You?

Dental bridges are permanent dental appliances made to replace missing teeth.

These bridges can be supported by natural teeth or created with implants. It is important to create a bridge when you have missing teeth, to prevent shifting of the natural teeth. Bridges are natural-looking, allow for comfortable chewing, and can be easily cleaned and maintained.

Procedure for Dental Bridges & Crowns Near You

During the first appointment, the tooth is prepared and shaped. An impression of the tooth is taken, and a temporary crown is placed. The impression is then sent to a dental laboratory to fabricate a custom-designed crown that will fit perfectly into the space in your mouth. At the second visit, the dental crown 92651 and/or bridge is cemented, and the procedure is complete.

Caring for Your Crown on a Bridge

It is important to take good care of the crown of the bridge with proper brushing and flossing. A quality crown or bridge can last many years when it is maintained properly. If you grind your teeth, your Laguna Hills dentist may recommend a mouth guard to protect your new crown and the rest of your teeth.
