Crowns and Bridges Q&A
Should I get a crown or bridge?
If you have a tooth that is damaged, decayed, or discolored, a dental crown might be a treatment option worth considering. If your tooth is missing and surrounded by other teeth, a bridge could be the appropriate solution. Crowns and bridges can strengthen damaged teeth in addition to improving the appearance, shape, and alignment of your teeth. The team at Tustin Dental Center can help you find the best, most suitable treatment option available.
How long does it take for a crown or bridge to be placed?
Since Tustin Dental Center utilizes the latest dental technology, crowns and bridges can be placed the same day they are diagnosed.
What should be expected when having crowns or bridges placed?
Tustin Dental Center uses CEREC™ technology to complete crown and bridge placement. Using the CEREC 3D CAD/CAM technology, your dentist scans the area where the crown or bridge needs to be placed. They then 3D print your crown or bridge using ceramic materials and place your restoration the same day.
Are crowns and bridge placements painful?
The team at Tustin Dental Center makes your comfort a priority. They use a local anesthetic during crown and bridge procedures and are in constant communication with you to ensure that you are not experiencing any pain.
What happens after the crown and bridge procedure?
Your teeth will need time to heal following the placement process. Some sensitivity is normal, especially with hot and cold temperatures. Sore gums should also be expected, though this temporary discomfort is typically manageable with over-the-counter pain medication. The team at Tustin Dental Center will also give you at-home care instructions to follow in the days following crown or bridge placement.
How long do crowns and bridges last?
With proper cleaning and regular dental exams, crowns and bridges can last many years, and sometimes even a lifetime. The team at Tustin Dental Center ensures that you are aware of proper at-home care to make sure that your crown or bridge lasts as long as possible.
What happens if I don’t get a crown or bridge?
Gaps left by missing teeth can often lead to other oral health issues. For instance, teeth around the empty socket may begin to shift, resulting in overbites or underbites. However, crowns and bridges prevent this from happening.
