Dental Crowns & Bridges

Sacramento, CA

If you have dental damage that is too extensive to repair with a traditional filling or if you are missing one or more of your teeth, a dental crown or bridge may be the ideal solution to restore your smile. At Greenhaven Dental Care, we offer quality, durable restorations crafted from the highest quality materials. We invite you to visit our Sacramento practice to get your smile back on track!

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown, often called a "cap," is a custom restoration that encases the entire visible portion of a tooth. It helps enhance a tooth's aesthetics while restoring its strength and function. At Greenhaven Dental Care, we offer the highest quality crown materials, including all ceramic and zirconia, to provide beautifully natural and durable restorations. We also offer porcelain fused to metal, gold, and metal crowns, depending on your unique needs and personal preferences.

Here is a look at our featured crown materials:

  • All-Ceramic Crowns: All-ceramic crowns, also known as all-porcelain crowns, mimic the color and translucency of natural tooth enamel, delivering seamless results. They are incredibly durable, providing a long-term solution to restore your smile.
  • Zirconia Crowns: Zirconia crowns are practically indestructible, offering a durable and long-term tooth restoration solution. The translucent material can be closely colored and texture-matched to your natural teeth, delivering superior results.

Why Would You Need a Dental Crown?

Dr. Chao may recommend a dental crown to restore a tooth with deep decay or a large filling, strengthen a weak or damaged tooth, or cover a tooth after root canal treatment. A dental crown can also repair a severely worn tooth, relieve pain from a cracked tooth, or replace one or more missing teeth by covering a dental implant or holding a dental bridge in place. Dental crowns can make cosmetic modifications, enhancing a tooth's size, shape, color, or overall appearance.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic device used to replace one or more adjacent teeth. It typically consists of crowns placed on teeth on either side of the gap with one or more replacement teeth in between. Dental bridges are made from the same quality materials as dental crowns.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges eliminate gaps in your smile, restoring beautiful, functional smiles. They make it easier to chew and speak, enhancing your confidence and quality of life. They also keep the remaining teeth from shifting toward the gap, which can otherwise lead to crooked teeth and a misaligned jaw. Dental bridges redistribute the forces of your bite, lowering the risk of periodontal disease, uneven tooth wear, tooth fracture, or even TMJ pain.

What Is the Dental Crowns and Bridge Procedure?

The dental crown procedure starts by shaping your tooth by removing some of its structure to make room for your restoration. A dental bridge is a similar process, which involves preparing the two supporting, or abutment, teeth for dental crown placement.

After preparing your teeth, we will take impressions to send to our partner dental lab, where skilled technicians will create your custom crown or bridge, closely matching your unique smile. We will place a temporary restoration to protect your prepared teeth as you wait.

Once your dental crown or bridge is ready, we will check it to ensure it provides a perfect fit. We will make any needed adjustments to ensure your restoration aligns perfectly with your natural teeth. Your new crown or bridge will restore your smile's health and function with natural-looking results.
