Crowns and Bridges Q & A

What is a dental crown? 

Dental crowns are durable caps that permanently adhere to damaged teeth to protect and strengthen them. Crowns are sometimes used to complete the look and function of dental implants.

Dr. Hoang recommends a crown to:

  • Protect a chipped or cracked tooth from breaking
  • Replace a large, unsightly filling
  • Restore the look of a permanently discolored tooth
  • Cover an implant
  • Cover a tooth with a weak filling or that’s at risk of breaking
  • Protect a tooth that’s had a root canal
  • Improve the shape and alignment of your teeth

The team at Dr. Michael Hoang, DMD uses the highest quality materials to make crowns and carefully matches them to blend into the natural color of your teeth.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge fills a gap in your smile left by missing teeth. The bridge, consisting of one or more prosthetic teeth, fixes to a crown on either side of the gap in your smile.

A bridge plays a vital role in your oral health by preventing the shifting of your natural teeth into the gaps. It also restores the alignment of your teeth so that your smile looks natural. Bridges also restore your ability to chew and speak normally.

What should I expect when receiving crowns and bridges?

Dr. Hoang uses strong, biocompatible cement to bond the crowns to your teeth.

If you’re getting a bridge, the teeth surrounding the gap in your smile are prepared. Dr. Hoang files them down and fits them for crowns. Once the crowns are placed, he bonds the bridge to these crowns.

How are crowns and bridges made?

Crowns and bridges are custom-made to match your smile. Dr. Hoang uses a camera to create a digital image of your teeth. That image is fed into a computer that designs a custom crown that will match your teeth in color, size, and shape. This blueprint is sent to a lab that makes your crown or bridge.
