Dental Crowns & Bridges
Smiling can be tough when a person has damaged teeth—and even more challenging with missing teeth. Dr. Schwartz’s patients smile with confidence through dental crowns and bridges, though.
Before deciding whether to get dental crowns and bridges, however, it’s important to understand what these dental fixtures are and what they can do for your oral care and confidence.
The office recommends consulting with Dr. Schwartz first before undertaking any of these dental procedures.
What is a dental crown?
Otherwise known as a “dental cap,” a dental crown conceals a tooth that is damaged. It can also be used to fix an area with extensive decay that threatens to destroy the entire tooth.
Decayed, cracked, or broken teeth can be covered and restored through dental crowns successfully. For missing teeth, Dr. Schwartz attaches a crown to a dental implant—a process called fitting an implant crown.
What is a dental bridge?
When trying to restore one or more teeth, a dental bridge is best. By attaching it to a crown, a dental bridge can fill gaps and replace missing teeth to restore that pearly white smile.
The materials used for dental bridges typically consist of porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
Dental crowns and bridges provide not only boosted self-esteem but also:
- assistance in chewing food
- reduction of bone loss from the jaw
- intact facial structures
- improved oral hygiene

Procedures for Dental Crowns & Bridges
A typical crown or bridge procedure requires two office visits. For the first visit, patients are measured for an accurate mold to ensure the dental crown will fit.
Dr. Schwartz can place a temporary crown or bridge to protect the prepared tooth or teeth while waiting for the permanent repair. The final crown is put in place on the second visit.
