What is a Dental Crown?

When your tooth is severely damaged or decayed, a dental crown can restore its shape, strength, and function. Made from top-quality materials, dental crowns are prosthetics that match the size and shape of your existing teeth and prevent further damage from wear or bacteria. The crown itself caps the affected tooth, allowing for a natural look and feel.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a non-removable dental prosthetic that replaces a tooth or teeth using the surrounding teeth as anchors. Our team can replace up to three missing teeth in a row. We minimally shape the teeth surrounding your gap to ensure your bridge can be secured successfully with crowns, allowing for long-lasting results.

Why Would I Require a Dental Crown in Irvine?

Crowns are a versatile solution to many dental health issues and offer the benefits of being safe and durable. We work with you to determine the best solution and only recommend treatments that will provide long-term results. Some of the ways our team uses dental crowns include:

  • Repairing a chipped or broken tooth
  • Anchoring a dental bridge
  • Restoring strength to a tooth with severe decay
  • Completing a single dental implant
  • Protecting a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Enhancing the aesthetics of your smile

What is the Process of Receiving a Dental Crown or Bridge?

All our processes begin with a thorough assessment of your current dental health and the diagnosis of any dental problems. We are concerned not only with saving a single tooth but ensuring the health and wellness of your jaws, teeth, and gums. If we discover you need a dental bridge or crown in Irvine, we will thoroughly explain the entire process and only proceed when you feel comfortable.

At the practice of Frank C Raymer, DDS, our team is committed to keeping up with the latest dental techniques and technology. We use our iTero® intraoral dental scanner to get precise images of the affected area and tooth. Our team can create a bridge or crown that specifically addresses your unique problem using these advanced images. Over a couple of visits, we will repair or restore your bite. Should you require retreatment or have a particularly complex issue, we partner with a trusted local endodontist to restore your oral health.

Exceptional Implant-Supported Solutions

Our practice offers a wide variety of dental solutions, so we can find the treatments that best fit your needs and lifestyle. Besides conventional solutions, we also offer implanted-supported dental crowns and bridges. Working with a dental implant specialist, you will have a titanium implant post surgically placed into your jaw. Titanium is the most biocompatible metal and allows for a solid foundation for your new tooth or teeth. Once the dental implant post or posts have been placed, we will affix a dental crown or bridge, ensuring comfort, aesthetics, and function.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Dental Crowns and Bridges

Both traditional and implant-supported dental crowns and bridges are beneficial to your oral health and restore the function of your bite. Dental implants have a few benefits that are exclusive to them. Some of those benefits are that they:

  • Don’t require the reshaping or alteration of healthy teeth to support a bridge
  • Prevent the loss of bone density and gum tissue
  • Have unrivaled strength and stability
  • Limit the chance of slipping out of place
