What is the difference between crowns and bridges?

A popular option to replace a missing tooth, an all-ceramic bridge is a replacement tooth that is anchored to the neighboring teeth. This forms a “bridge” over the gap and restores your smile to its natural beauty. Traditional gold crowns are “caps” that cover a damaged tooth to restore its full strength and functionality. They are usually made of cast gold, which is often the material most preferred by dentists due to its durability and longevity. These crowns can last for decades, in some cases up to 50 years.

What is it like getting a crown or bridge at Redding Dental Arts?

If you are suffering from one or more damaged or missing teeth, Dr. Tucker and our expert team will help you decide which treatment option is best for you based on your specific case and personal needs. Our expertise and technology ensure that the crowns or bridges we provide will restore your natural teeth to their full function or replace missing ones with replacements that look, feel and work like the real thing. We mill our posterior teeth in house, which means that crowns and bridges will be completed and cemented in just a few hours. Milling is the process of using a machine to craft a customized crown or bridge created just for you. Some crowns and bridges will still need to be sent out at times, but we will let our patients know in advance when this may be the case.

Prior to your procedure, we will tell you everything you need to know, including:

  • What we will be doing during the procedure
  • How we will do it
  • Why we are doing it that way
  • How you can prepare
  • Which arrangements (if any) you’ll need to make afterward

If you’d like to learn more about our crowns and bridges or wish to schedule an appointment, please call Redding Dental Arts today at (530) 222-0920.
