How Do Crowns And Bridges Benefit Me?

What To Expect When Getting Crowns Or Bridges Done?

The procedure usually requires 2 visits. 

During the first visit, our dentists will shape your tooth, take an impression and place a temporary crown or bridge to cover the tooth. 

Another appointment will be scheduled to place the permanent crown or bridge when it is ready. 


Do crowns and bridges last forever?

No. Crowns and bridges last for an average of 5 to 15 years, depending on your oral hygiene, lifestyle and habits. You may need a replacement if there are signs of wear.

Does it hurt during the procedure?

Before the treatment begins, your tooth will be numbed if necessary. Rest assured that our dentists will make sure the entire process is painless.

Are there different types of crowns and bridges?

How long do I have to wait for my permanent crown or bridge to be ready?

At Dental Home, we are equipped with advanced technology that allows you to have your crown or bridge placed as soon as the next day of your first visit.

Can my tooth decay even after placing a crown or bridge?
