One thought on “What can you expect with the Crown & Bridge procedure?

    The procedures are done quickly and easily in our office in about an hour. For the crown procedure, just the one tooth is filed down to create an abutment for the new restoration. Impressions are taken of the area and used to make both a temporary as well as a permanent restoration. You’ll go home with a temporary bridge or crown and will need to come back in to have the permanent one placed. Both crowns and bridges require absolutely no surgery to place. For a dental bridge, the two surrounding teeth are filed down to properly sit the new bridge. Most people who need a crown or a dental bridge are good candidates for the procedure. You’ll need an exam and consultation before having either a crown or bridge placed. The bite and fit of your new permanent restoration is adjusted and you’ll be ready to go home. You’ll first come in and receive a local anesthetic to the area requiring the crown or bridge. Both bridges and crowns can last for years or even decades with proper care.
