Crowns and Bridges
When teeth are damaged or missing, it can take a toll—on your appearance and on your ability to chew and speak properly. At Gruber Dental, we can provide beautiful, full-coverage restorations in the form of dental crowns and bridges to repair and restore your smile. We offer both lab-fabricated restorations as well as same-day crowns we make in our in-office milling station.
Our goal is for you to enjoy a healthy smile that looks beautiful and functions properly. Contact us to find out more about how dental crowns and bridges in Parsippany, NJ can help.
Some people refer to dental crowns as “tooth caps” because of the way they fit snugly over a prepared tooth—much like a hat. At our Parsippany, NJ dental office, we begin the procedure by preparing your tooth to receive the crown. If you are getting a traditional dental crown, we will take a mold of the tooth and fit you with a temporary crown. It will take our lab about two weeks to make a perfect-fitting tooth crown.
When your crown is back from the lab, you’ll come in for a follow-up appointment, and one of our dentists will cement the crown into place. After ensuring that you can bite down properly and the crown feels comfortable, we will send you on your way with a durable restoration that will last for many years.
If you opt for a crown that we fabricate in-office, the preparation of the tooth is much the same. But we will take a digital impression of your prepared tooth, which we will send to our milling station. While you relax in the dental chair, the machine will fabricate a beautiful restoration. We will place the crown and cement it into place—all in one office visit.
When You Might Need a Dental Crown
Dental crowns are useful for a variety of purposes:
- To restore molars that are weakened when a large filling fails
- To strengthen a tooth after a root canal
- To cover up a damaged or flawed tooth
- To hold a dental bridge in place
It’s crucial to replace even one missing tooth in your mouth, and with a dental bridge at our Parsippany, NJ dental office, it’s an easy process that can protect your oral health.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic restoration that can fill in the space left by one or more adjacent missing teeth. We’ll attach the bridge to dental crowns on the teeth next to the open space; these crowns will hold the bridge in place.
We make dental bridges that blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing you with an esthetic look that is also very practical. Leaving gaps in your smile from even one missing tooth puts your remaining teeth at risk of shifting, leading to undue wear and possibly further tooth loss.
