Dental Bridges & Crowns

You may have a decayed or damaged tooth with the overall structure or surrounding teeth remaining intact. In such scenarios, a dental bridge or crown can be the perfect treatment option to restore your dental aesthetics and functionality. Dental crowns and bridges are among the most common treatments for the replacement and restoration of damaged or missing teeth. At Doral Dental Specialty Center, our dentists will carefully examine your tooth to create a customized treatment plan.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a highly durable cap placed securely over a flawed tooth. A crown will be placed over a single tooth and is colored and shaped to match the surrounding teeth. While porcelain is valued for its longevity, durability, and color, we also offer crowns made of ceramic, resin, and metal.

Since they will completely cover your natural tooth, dental crowns create the appearance of a new tooth. They will stay in place for years or decades depending on the choice of material and oral care. It allows you to talk, chew, and smile without any hindrance.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a replacement tooth that is held in place by a couple of crowns. A bridge is fixed to the crown and the crowns go over the teeth over each end of the gap between the teeth. Then false teeth will be placed along the bridge and the gap on the gumline is filled. Some of the materials used for making bridges include:
