Dental Crowns & Bridges Dentist in Issaquah

Restorative Dentistry

Natural-looking-Dental-Crowns-and-bridges-in-issaquah The key to making great crowns for teeth and bridges is making them look natural. Issaquah dentist, Dr. Jorgensen knows what it takes to make a great crown. His goal: make it unnoticeable! He explains, “It should blend with the other teeth. It doesn’t look like a veneer, and it doesn’t look like a crown. It just looks like a natural tooth.” The same can be said for making a bridge for a missing tooth.

What Are Dental Bridges and Crowns?

When teeth are damaged or removed due to disease or trauma, the two most common forms of dental work are crowns and bridges. A dental crown is essentially an artificial tooth “cap” that covers a single original tooth. Crowns are commonly placed for either cosmetic reasons or after significant damage that leaves the tooth malformed. A dental bridge is a set of crowns and false teeth used to literally bridge a gap left by missing teeth. The outer crowns are placed over the two teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the bridge, while the middle artificial tooth is placed in the gap.

Crowns and bridges are custom fit and can be fashioned from a variety of materials. Most often, dental crowns and bridges are made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, gold alloys and base metal alloys. While gold crowns and other metal crowns are perfectly functional options, porcelain crowns and ceramic crowns are common choices for a realistic, “invisible” look. A dentist will first take an impression of the patient's teeth, then send the impressions to a dental lab to have the crown or bridge manufactured in a chosen material. The dentist will also reduce the size of the teeth to be capped to prepare them.

Between the time the impressions are taken and the tooth crown or bridge is made, a dentist will usually provide a temporary piece to cover any teeth that have been prepared and reduced. Once the finished work has returned from the dental lab, the temporary crown or bridge can be removed and replaced with the final piece.

Bridges and Crowns vs. Dental Implants

Some patients choose to go the route of dental implants, a more permanent solution that requires oral surgery and periods of healing. Compared with dental implants, however, bridges and crowns can be completed much more quickly, often at a fraction of the price. Because Dr. Jorgensen is passionate about creating a beautiful, natural smile for every patient, a crown or bridge from Remarkable Smiles will give you the attractive, functional teeth you want with a much faster turnaround than dental implants.
