Dental Crowns & Bridges in Glendale

Crowns & Bridges - Glendale Family Dental Care, Glendale Dentist

Dental crowns restore a tooth to its full glory – resulting in a truly aesthetically pleasing appearance. There are many uses and types of dental crowns.

Different Types of Dental Crowns

There are different types of dental crowns that we offer. Dental crowns are often chosen based on your needs and budget. Each type comes with it’s own set of advantages and disadvantages.

All ceramic or all porcelain:

These types of crowns fully match the color of teeth for a concealed appearance and work very well with those who may have allergies to metal. They are great for front teeth.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal:

This option is very durable while matching the same shade as your teeth. However, they may appear as dark lines around your tooth so many people love them for back teeth that are not as visible and are used more often.

All metal:

This option is the most durable of them all at the cost of aesthetic appearance. They do not match the same color as teeth.

Even when tooth are lost a denture may not be required. By using the teeth on either side of the space, a bridge can be made which spans the gap with a tooth attached to the teeth next to the space. Bridges are often described as fixed, when they are cemented on the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. They do not come in and out and are the most esthetic and comfortable method of replacing missing teeth. Crowns can be placed on implants as well.

Restore Your Smile Today

Dental crowns are often used to finish off other procedures such as dental implants. They also replace severe cases of tooth decay that have resulted in a large amount of tooth loss. Crowns restore form and function to your tooth without the need for an extraction. It is always best to save as much real tooth as possible.
