Crowns, Bridges, and
aesthetic temporaries

Here at White Crown Dental we take care of all your crown and bridge needs.

Our doctor is very knowledgeable in the different types of dental materials and crown restorations. Our Dental Office is transitioning to Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges. We believe that a dental office must be able to offer the best in esthetics and technology to our patients. Rest assured that we will answer all your questions and will guide you throughout the process. We use the highest quality materials and are capable of matching your crown color for all your needs.

When Do I Need a Crown/Bridge?
  • If you have a cavity that it too large for a filling

  • If you have a missing tooth

  • If you need to cover a dental implant (Using CAD-CAM Temporary)

  • If you have a cracked tooth and is worn down or otherwise weakened

  • If you have a root canal treated tooth and need to protect it from fracture

At your appointment we will discuss the different types of crowns that can be made and the best recommendations for your tooth will be made. Also you may need an Inlay/Onlay instead of a crown. These are like ¾ crown one-piece ceramic tooth replacement made by the lab. They cement into the area missing of the tooth and replicate the look of your original tooth. Inlay/Onlay are diagnosed as a conservative approach to crowns and are on a case-by-case basis and not everyone qualifies. Additionally, we offer and recommend Buxzir crowns which are high-quality crowns that do not have any refined metals, do not stain the gums, and are non toxic. We believe that by only offering the best possible materials to our patients and promoting metal-free dentistry we are advocating for their best possible oral health.* 

What is CAD-Cam?

It is a temporary crown/bridge that is made by a computer in a lab. It is a modern temporary technology that is made for prolonged use while the gums heal or when necessary. By Using CAD-CAM technology we can obtain predictable results while maintaining both aesthetics and function.

While services may vary, some things you should keep in mind while getting a crown/bridge:

  • Put your mind at ease. We are here for you.

  • We will start by taking an initial mold of the tooth/teeth being worked on

  • After the anesthetic has taken effect we will begin to prepare the tooth. This process is very straight forward and you will be comfortable throughout the procedure

  • After the tooth is ready, we will take a final mold to send to the lab*

  • We will make a chairside temporary crown for the tooth at the same appointment and cement it with temporary cement.

  • Immediately after your appointment will schedule a follow up appointment for the final cementation of your crown/bridge.

What's Next?

While we are waiting for the crown/bridge to return from the lab there are several things to remember:

  1. Follow the post-op instructions given to you after your appointment

*for an additional cost we can expedite the fabrication of the crown. Metal-free refers to any kind of amalgam, mercury, base metal, noble metal, and high noble metal but is not limited to only those metals
** for an additional cost we can make a CAD-CAM temporary instead of a chairside temporary
