Crowns and bridges restore your smile

Restorative dentistry includes anything that restores a damaged or missing tooth or restores oral health. Crowns, sometimes called “caps,” cover the entire tooth and are used to restore teeth that need extra strength and support due to large fillings, fractures and/or root canal therapy. We first make a mold or impression of the tooth to be crowned and sent it to a lab to be carefully custom-made. We place a temporary tooth crown while our patient waits for the permanent crown to come back from the lab.

This procedure is usually completed in two appointments, two weeks apart. We can make a significant improvement in appearance with this technique. We also use the technologically advanced iTero® scanner to take 3D digital scans of your teeth and bite, make adjustments in real time and transmit the file to the lab electronically for processing – eliminating the need for molds or impressions. Our ceramic crowns deliver unmatched beauty for your crown restoration.

Bridging the gap for a missing tooth

We use a dental bridge to fill a gap between teeth. We attach an artificial tooth to two crowns and then cement it over the adjacent teeth. The benefit of a bridge over a partial denture is that a bridge is not removed and it looks and feels like your “real” teeth. Bridges are extremely durable and can last many years when they are properly cleaned and cared for.

University Family Dental also offers tooth-colored fillings only. We have a variety of shades to match your individual teeth so fillings are virtually invisible.
