Crowns & Bridges Q&A

What are crowns and bridges?

Crowns and bridges are common dental restoration treatments that repair teeth, replace teeth, or improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. 


Crowns are artificial teeth that attach to dental implants (metal tooth roots) or tooth-colored caps that fit over the top of a natural tooth. They can repair or replace teeth.


Bridges contain multiple artificial teeth. They replace one or more missing teeth by attaching to dental implants or fitting over natural teeth using crowns.

What are the benefits of crowns and bridges?

The benefits you can take advantage of after receiving crowns and bridges at White Hill Dental include teeth that are:

  • Stronger
  • Beautiful
  • Natural-looking
  • Long-lasting
  • Even-shaped

Crowns and bridges look just like the surrounding natural teeth. They eliminate gaps or enhance the color, size, shape, and overall appearance of natural teeth.

Are crowns and bridges right for me?

Your White Hill Dental provider determines which dental restoration treatment is best for you after reviewing your medical history, examining your teeth and gums, and evaluating the results of your dental X-rays. They tailor each treatment based on your needs and preferences.

What should I expect when getting crowns and bridges?

Your dentist may first need to extract teeth or remove decay from them before you receive a crown or bridge. If you have gum disease, it must be treated as well.

Before crown or bridge placement, your provider numbs the treatment area. They either prepare affected teeth to receive crowns or bridges or surgically implant dental implants into your jawbone.

They scan your teeth and mouth to create custom-fitted crowns and bridges. When your new dental restorations are ready, they bond them to your natural teeth or attach them to dental implants.

How should I take care of crowns and bridges?

It’s important to take good care of dental crowns and bridges to avoid damage. Brush your teeth after meals, floss every day, and see the White Hill Dental providers at least every six months for professional dental cleanings. Wear a nightguard during sleep if you grind your teeth and avoid chewing on hard objects.
