Dental crowns and bridges are great options, because we can really get custom shades on those. So people who have really broken-down teeth, it gets a lot more difficult to put fillings in them, so when you do a crown, you can have a homogenous shade of the teeth so people can really smile better.
There's been a lot of advances in dental materials. Older crowns have multiple structures within them, it's like a metal base with a porcelain overlay. So a lot of times, people can see the metal base underneath the porcelain. So with the advances in dental material now, we can have all-ceramic crowns, and we can make them whatever shade we need. And also if we need to, we can make custom shades so that they exactly match adjacent teeth.

Crowns are a great option. They help us rebuild teeth, restore the form and function, and really protect the tooth from future wear and tear. It can give a patient their full smile back. If a patient invests in bridges and crowns, they're really investing in the future of their teeth.
Here is how the CEREC system works:
- First, we will make a digital scan of your teeth.
- With that data, we’ll design your crown using computer software.
- Then CAD/CAM technology guides our in-house milling machine to turn a piece of porcelain into your new crown.
- We’ll shade it to match the rest of your smile and bond it in place.
- In one day, you can get your broken, cracked, decayed, or discolored tooth back in shape.
Crowns also can be used cosmetically to improve discolored, undersized, worn, and misshapen teeth. If you are missing a tooth, a dental crown can be attached to a dental implant. This can help you eat comfortably again and prevent your remaining teeth from shifting or falling out.
Build a Bridge to Bring Back Your Smile
Dental bridges are another option if you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth. Bridges are made by fusing crowns together. That also means your bridge will look and function like your natural teeth. Traditional bridges are bonded to nearby teeth for support and stability. You also can get implant-supported bridges to hold your replacement teeth steady.
