Crowns & Bridges

At Affinity Dental in Grand Rapids, we understand the importance of a healthy and beautiful smile. Dental crowns and bridges are excellent solutions to restore your smile's aesthetics and functionality if you have damaged or missing teeth. Our skilled team, led by Dr. Maritza Salvo-Ale, specializes in providing high-quality dental crown and bridge treatments tailored to your needs.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, or caps, are custom-made restorations that fit over a damaged or decayed tooth. They restore the tooth's shape, size, strength, and appearance. Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, metal, or both.

What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges offer a reliable solution to fill the gaps and restore your smile if you are missing one or more teeth. A dental bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, which are held in place by dental crowns on the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. The crowns or implants act as anchors, providing stability and support to the bridge.

When Are Dental Crowns Needed?

We recommend dental crowns in various situations, including:

  • Tooth Decay:

    When a tooth has extensive decay that you cannot restore with a filling, a dental crown can protect and strengthen the remaining tooth structure.

  • Cracked or Fractured Teeth:

    A dental crown can hold cracked or fractured teeth together, preventing further damage and providing stability.

  • Root Canal Treatment:

    A dental crown is often placed to protect and strengthen the treated tooth after a root canal procedure.

  • Misshapen or Discolored Teeth:

    Dental crowns can improve the appearance of misshapen or severely discolored teeth, enhancing your smile's aesthetics.

What are the Benefits of Dental Crowns and Bridges?

  • Improved Aesthetics:

    Dental crowns and bridges are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, creating a seamless and natural-looking smile.

  • Restored Functionality:

    Dental crowns and bridges enable you to chew, bite, and speak properly, restoring the functionality of your teeth and enhancing your quality of life.

  • Long-lasting Solutions:

    With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns and bridges can last many years, providing durable and reliable tooth replacements.

  • Preservation of Jawbone:

    By filling the gaps caused by missing teeth, dental bridges help prevent bone loss and maintain the integrity of your jawbone.

  • Improved Confidence:

    Dental crowns and bridges can significantly enhance your smile's appearance, boosting your self-confidence and improving your overall well-being.

The Dental Crown and Bridge Process at Affinity Dental

The process of receiving dental crowns or bridges at Affinity Dental typically involves the following steps:

  • Consultation and Treatment Planning:

    During your initial consultation, Dr. Salvo-Ale will assess your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and create a customized plan that addresses your specific needs.

  • Tooth Preparation:

    To accommodate the dental crown or bridge, the affected tooth or teeth will be prepared by removing a small amount of enamel.

  • Impression:

    We will take precise impressions of your teeth to create accurate models for fabricating your custom dental crown or bridge. These impressions ensure a comfortable fit and natural appearance.

  • Temporary Restoration:

    While your permanent dental crown or bridge is being fabricated, we will place temporary restorations to protect your prepared teeth.

  • Crown or Bridge Placement:

    Once your custom restoration is ready, Dr. Salvo-Ale will remove the temporary restoration and carefully place the permanent dental crown or bridge. She will ensure proper fit, bite, and aesthetics, making any necessary adjustments.

  • Follow-up Care:

    After your dental crown or bridge placement, our team will provide instructions on how to care for your new restoration, including proper oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups.
