Dental Crowns & Bridges

A damaged or missing tooth can create unsightly gaps in your smile, potentially paving the way for more serious dental issues like discomfort, gum disease, and misaligned biting. The bright side is that at BrightCraft Dental and Laser, we offer a solution. When it comes to repairing compromised teeth, dental crowns and bridges stand as highly effective restorations that seamlessly blend with your natural teeth in both appearance and function.

What are dental crowns?

As in all cases of dental intervention, the first step is consulting a dentist.


Dental crowns represent a restorative treatment in which a tooth-like shell fully encapsulates and envelops a tooth. Typically, they are employed for patients with compromised or weakened teeth, and they can also be utilized following oral surgery or a root canal procedure. The primary objective of crown installations is to restore functionality, ensuring that the restorations mimic the performance of natural teeth.

Tooth crowns effectively address the following dental concerns:

✓ Tooth decay
✓ Fractured or cracked teeth
✓ Large, flawed fillings
✓ Providing support for a dental bridge
✓ Concealing crooked or discolored teeth

What are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge comprises two or more interlinked dental crowns, serving as a treatment method that utilizes multiple crowns to seamlessly replace a missing tooth. As its name implies, this restoration is aptly named for its ability to bridge the gap resulting from tooth loss.

A tooth bridge serves as a restorative remedy for addressing the following concerns:

✓ Oral challenges related to speaking or chewing due to missing teeth
✓ An impaired smile affected by unsightly gaps
✓ Preventing accelerated wear and tear on the remaining healthy teeth

What is the process for getting dental crowns and bridges?

The process of completing your dental crown and bridge typically involves 2-3 dental visits. Below, we outline the steps involved:

Step 1: Consultation
Your initial visit to our office is dedicated to a comprehensive consultation. This is an opportunity for you to express your goals, and for us to thoroughly assess your oral condition.

Step 2: Dental Impression
During this stage, we take an impression of your teeth, which we will use to craft your custom crowns in our in-house lab. During this period, we provide you with a temporary crown.

Step 3: Final Placement
In your subsequent appointment, we remove the temporary crown and fit the new one, ensuring it aligns perfectly with your smile and bite. If you’re satisfied with the result, your new crown is securely placed, allowing you to confidently leave our office with your restored smile.
