What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?

Both dental crowns and bridges are prosthetic appliances used to replace damaged or missing teeth respectively. A dental crown fits over the tooth, either covering it completely or capping it partially, whereas a bridge replaces a missing tooth and is anchored in place by dental crowns on either side.

In other words, a bridge is used to span gaps left by missing teeth, whereas a dental crown is primarily used to protect teeth that have been weakened by decay or damage.

Are They Right for Me?

Both crowns and bridges are used to restore damaged teeth. However, they are used in different ways. A dental crown is used when a person has a single damaged tooth. The crown fits over the entire tooth and is used to restore the tooth’s shape, size, and appearance.

On the other hand, a dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge, which is referred to as a “fixed bridge” because the prosthetic teeth are not removable, is anchored to the teeth on either side of the gap.

Both these restorations are quite simple and long-lasting.

How Are They Made?

Crowns can be made from many different types of materials, including porcelain, gold, alloys, and composites. They are custom-made to fit your tooth perfectly. Some crowns are made in one piece, while other crowns are made in multiple pieces so that they can be attached to the tooth more easily.

Bridges are false teeth that take the place of missing teeth. They are sometimes used when a person is missing one or more teeth in a row. Bridges have crowns that are cemented onto teeth on each side of the space, and the artificial tooth attached to the crowns covers the gap. Both bridges and crowns are made of strong, durable ceramic material that will look and feel like your natural teeth. Since crowns and bridges are permanent restorations, they will last longer than dental fillings.

Crowns and bridges require two dental visits. During the first visit, we will prepare the tooth or teeth receiving treatment. In some cases, we will need to remove a small amount of the enamel to allow room for the crown or bridge.

Then, we will take an impression of your teeth. This impression will be sent to our dental lab where your custom crown or bridge will be fabricated. During your second visit, we will place the crown or bridge over your teeth and make any adjustments as needed. Both bridges and crowns will last for many years with proper care.

Christy Tanaiewski
I cracked a premolar in half. I’ve had a lifetime of dental fear, for good reason. I was super nervous to see a new dentist to extract this tooth. But, Dr. Umphlett was awesome. She managed to not only numb me up but noticed when I started to feel anything. I knew right away that I was in good hands. She explained everything in great detail. Even with my decades of dental trauma, I feel completely comfortable seeing her again and again. Thanks Dr. Umphlett!

This is a WONDERFUL clinic! I use to hate going to the dentist, wouldn’t go for years due to a bad experience at another dentist clinic. Then I found this clinic a couple years ago.This is a small clinic, they not just care about you as a patient but treat you as family. I most recently was going thru some other medical issues and I received a card in the mail with a little get well note from everyone. It meant a lot to me to receive that in the mail. They greet me by name when I come in. I have never really had to wait more than 5 minutes. If I did they would send someone out to give me update on how much longer the wait would be. Everyone in the clinic has smiles and is sociable, even the doctors. Very relaxed environment. My teeth went from a complete mess to feeling and looking good! And the heated toilet seat in the bathroom is great on a cold winter day 😂. I love this clinic!

I am currently unemployed and temporarily on Medicaid. I am a periodontal patient and also in Clear Correct treatment. The care plan and financing are pretty reasonable. I tried a cheaper route elsewhere, but I regretted it and returned to North End Dental. I love the staff and the office. I wouldn’t trust my oral health care to anyone else!
Josh Kacirek
This is the first time ever that i am excited for the future of my smile. To not live in pain everyday. It wouldnt have been able to happen if it was for North End Dental. I say that with experience as i have tried 75+ other dentists to have my teeth fixed and came up with the same answer, dental implants are for the rich. That was until i came here and they said let us work with you, let us help you. So glad i found this dentist.

So I went in in incredibly bad pain. All my teeth hurt, and I clearly had been in a loosing battle with my teeth. I felt defeated. Quinn got me in talked to me. Then Dr Hill came in and talked to me. At no point did anyone make me fell bad or anything, in fact they made me feel welcome and good about myself. So I pulled the trigger on their Diamond smile service. (50 grand). And at first it seems like alot of money. But after I had the surgery and was on my way to healing. I felt better about myself and more confident, and my Happiness had returned but in a stronger way. Now I look at the price and feel it was just pennies. My Happiness n health is priceless!!! And I can only say thank you n pay my bill as I feel like a new person, better looking stronger and healthier. Priceless!!.

Billie Greenfield
Wonderful staff and office! I felt very welcomed and trust this office completely! Highly recommend! Toyan was so patient and both her and the Dr were the best!
Zoey Ballard
After moving here from out of state, my husband and I were very nervous to start with a new dentist. We were/are so very impressed with the entire experience we’ve had since we’ve started coming here. I saw Dr. Umphlett whom was gentle, kind and extremely thorough. My husband saw Dr. Moore whom was equally gentle, kind, and thorough. We both see Abby as our hygienist, she is awesome! Not only is North End Dental absolutely beautiful on the inside, the people who work here are so kind and make sure that you are taken care of. We will not be seeing another dentist as long as North End Dental is in business. Thank you North End for changing our perspective on dentistry and for taking such good care of us!
