Crowns and Bridges

Full coverage dental crowns and bridges are an essential part of restoring missing or broken teeth.

At Bloom Dental Group in San Mateo, California, the team takes great pride in helping you feel good about your smile again by providing expert crown and bridge placement.

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are caps shaped to look like teeth that cover a damaged tooth in order to restore strength, function, and normal appearance. Dental crowns completely cover any remaining tooth so they fit seamlessly into your smile.

Crowns are commonly made from porcelain, ceramic, metal, resin, or stainless steel. Dental crowns can last up to five to 15 years and your dentist will help you decide which type of crown will work best for your needs.

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges involve two or more crowns being placed to fill a gap between teeth. Bridges help restore function and improve the appearance of your smile when you need more than once tooth replaced.

Fixed bridges span the gaps where there are missing teeth. Each end is supported by a healthy tooth or dental implant. Bridges can help revive your confidence in your smile and your ability to maintain good oral health, and they last from five to 15 years.

What can I expect when getting a crown or bridge?

Our facility offers a range of expert crown and bridge options for every patient.

At Bloom Dental Group, our dentists check the health and spacing of the teeth before placing a permanent restoration. We then prepare the tooth and take an impression of the area, which is used to create the custom bridge or crown. The final restoration is custom-matched to look just like the teeth next to it. Before the permanent crown or bridge is ready, we place a temporary restoration over the tooth to prevent sensitivity and improve appearance.

Once the permanent crown or bridge is ready for delivery, it will be bonded directly to your tooth.  Minor tooth sensitivity is normal right after you get the new crown or bridge, but should not last long.
