A crown is a cap, or covering, designed to replace an original tooth’s shape and function. Typically made from porcelain, crowns look and feel as real as natural teeth.
They can serve as a means to fortify a weakened tooth, or cover a tooth damaged by decay, breakage, or be used after a patient undergoes root canal therapy. Crowns, unlike veneers, will envelope a tooth entirely, even up to above the gum line.
When we see our patients about getting dental crowns and bridges in Roseville, we carefully consider their needs. That means we only suggest a crown when absolutely necessary. A crown may be the treatment option of choice when:

A dental bridge is a fixed tooth replacement option consisting of multiple crowns fused together to replace a space where one or more teeth are missing. The healthy teeth on either side of the space serve as anchored supports for the bridge. Because of this, dental bridges are made with a minimum of three crowns joined together.
Bridges help address missing teeth and reinforcing existing teeth. If you are missing several teeth, a dental bridge may be the best option for you.

Whole Dental Wellness is focused on non-invasive dental care and providing you with excellent oral health is our priority.
Much like a dental crown, the anchoring teeth on either side of the space where you are missing a tooth (or teeth) will be shaped in preparation for your future bridge. Next, digital impressions of the prepared teeth and surrounding area are taken and sent to a laboratory so an expert technician can begin the process of building your bridge.
Once we receive your bridge from the lab (typically in a few weeks), we will remove your temporary bridge and permanently cement your new bridge so you will be smiling, chewing, and functioning just like you would with your natural teeth! Unlike dentures, bridges do not require removal for cleaning so they look, feel, and function just like your own natural teeth. To take care of your dental bridge, brush and floss as usual, and maintain regular dental appointments.
Our Whole Dental team is dedicated to providing the best dental crowns and bridges in Roseville, and we always go the extra mile for our patients!
