Our Crowns & Bridges Options Will Give You Back a Functional Smile

At Blankenship Family Dentistry, you have choices when it comes to crowns and bridges – all of which are state-of-the-art porcelain restorations containing no metal. Below are some of your options:

  • Single Crown for Tooth Repair – You can get a natural-looking porcelain crown to cap a damaged or diseased tooth. It will blend in beautifully with your other teeth so that no one will even know your tooth has been repaired.
  • Single-Implant Crown – If you have a missing tooth, we can secure a new crown to a dental implant that an oral surgeon has placed in your jaw. The finished product will look and function just like your natural tooth with about 90 percent of your original biting and chewing capacity.
  • Fixed Bridge – A bridge contains natural-looking replacement teeth and spans the area left by one or more missing teeth. The appliance anchors on either end to your existing teeth.
  • Implant Bridge – This kind of bridge is similar to a fixed bridge except that it anchors to two or more implants instead of your own teeth. Its advantage is that it doesn’t require any modification to your natural teeth to place it.

Common Questions About Dental Crowns & Bridges

How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

With proper care, crowns and bridges can last up to a decade. In fact, it’s not unusual for these restorations to last 20 years or more with proper care. Over time, the adhesives used to bond these restorations to teeth can wear down. This can allow the restorations to come loose. Tooth decay also can affect the life span of crowns and bridges.

How much do dental crowns and bridges cost?

The cost for crowns and bridges can vary quite a bit depending on how they are used. It is not possible to give you an accurate idea of the cost of your treatment without first performing an exam and taking a set of X-rays. Afterward, we can detail the estimated cost for your dental work so you can decide on a course of treatment.

Will insurance cover dental crowns and bridges?

Dental crowns and bridges are often covered by dental insurance plans, at least in part. We recommend that you check with your insurance provider so that you know what your out-of-pocket cost will be. We will always work with you to help you maximize your insurance benefits.
