Crowns and Bridges
I'm extremely happy with my crowns. They look very natural. Most of all you made sure I was comfortable and didn't have any pain during the procedures and that's what keeps a client coming back ~ Aurora
Crown and bridge work are among the most common dental procedures. Crowns are fabricated from many different types of materials. We like to use gold in areas where the crown is not visible due to its durability, biocompatibility, and sealed margins. We recommend all ceramic eMax, Lava, or Feldspathic porcelain crowns where aesthetics is a concern. We will always discuss options with patients in order to make the best decisions together.
A crown or cap is placed over the tooth where the tooth is too structurally compromised for a filling or a partial coverage inlay or onlay. The patient's mouth is numbed and the tooth is reduced enough to be covered. An impression is then taken and sent to the lab for fabrication while the patient uses a temporary crown or cap. Upon fabrication the crown is cemented in the patient’s mouth. Crowns are made of gold, gold and ceramic, or just ceramic. We choose not to use any metals in our Crowns Newport Beach due to their corrosive nature and the frequency of allergies.

A bridge is an option for someone missing one or several teeth. A bridge replaces missing teeth by connecting teeth adjacent to the missing area with artificial teeth in between.
Pros & Cons of Bridge vs Implant
• Faster than an implant
• Destruction of healthy adjacent teeth
• Additional forces placed on adjacent teeth and weakening them • Aesthetics • Lifespan
