Crowns and Bridges

Fortify Your Oral Health

Dental crowns are synthetic caps that are placed over damaged teeth. Dental crowns restore a tooth’s function and appearance after:

  • Decay
  • Damage
  • Discoloration
  • Dental procedures like root canal therapy

Crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover dental implants, or prevent cracked teeth from becoming worse. Dental crowns serve both a functional and aesthetic use.

Dental bridges are natural-looking dental appliances that can replace a section of missing teeth. We create custom-made bridges that are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour and bite relationship of your teeth.

Caring for Your Crowns and Bridges

With proper care, our quality crowns and bridges can last for eight years or longer. Remember to brush and floss in the area surrounding the dental work so that you can avoid excess plaque buildup there.

It is also important to avoid jaw clenching and grinding, because these behaviors can significantly shorten the life of a crown or bridge. Finally, it is best to eliminate brittle and hard-to-chew foods from your diet. Don’t chew ice, hard candy, or similar foods with a crown or bridge.

Sedation Dentistry for Dental Crowns

If you need to have a dental crown or bridge placed, you may be feeling a little nervous. Fortunately, stress-free dentistry is right here waiting for you at Guerra Dental Health!

Many patients suffer from anxiety, severe gag reflexes, or other difficulties that make it tough to sit through a crown or bridge procedure. With sedation dentistry at Guerra Dental Health, you will discover a completely relaxed state while you receive your smile improvements.

Nitrous Oxide | Nitrous oxide is a non-allergenic, non-irritating gas that is colorless and odorless. By simply inhaling the nitrous oxide, patients with anxiety will be able to relax and feel zero discomfort.

Minimal Oral Conscious | Oral conscious sedation allows you to be completely stress-free throughout your entire dental procedure. This is administered through the form of a pill or liquid which is absorbed by the body. You will be responsive but free of discomfort.
