Dental Crowns and Bridges in Boca Raton, FL
Dental crowns and bridges are effective restorations when teeth are lost or severely damaged. Our crowns and bridges look natural and offer much-needed assistance with chewing and speaking. We use high-quality materials in our crowns and bridges to ensure the restorations last as long as possible and provide exceptional performance.
At Harris Dentistry, we ensure your dental crowns and bridges blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth and will function like natural teeth. We use CEREC® technology so that we can offer patients restorations and crown fabrications in a single day. These same-day crowns make the process of getting teeth restored easier and faster for patients. With traditional restoration fabrication methods, you can expect to make a minimum of two visits when receiving dental bridges. For dental bridges, we use the first visit to make impressions of your teeth and then send those impressions to a dental laboratory. Once the bridge is ready, you can return to have it fitted and ensure it fits properly.
What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are used when a tooth has a very large filling that exceeds the natural tooth structure, your tooth had root canal therapy, or for cosmetic reasons.
Dental crowns have many applications. The first is to be installed over a damaged tooth to cap the existing structure, which restores the damaged tooth so it can be used normally. Crowns can also be attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth; these implants will be surgically inserted into the jawbone and serve as the root for the tooth. This procedure keeps the crown steady and secure.
Additionally, dental crowns may also be used to provide extra support for dental bridges. They do not require any special treatment and can be brushed and flossed as normal.
How much does a dental crown cost?

What is a dental bridge?
When a patient loses one or more teeth, dental bridges are frequently employed. These bridges are called “bridges” because they comprise one or more substitute teeth that fill the gap created by the loss of original teeth. Abutment crowns can be used on both ends or permanently fixed precision metal mechanisms can be used to secure dental bridges. At Harris Dentistry, each part of a dental bridge is individually designed to ensure a natural appearance and the intended functionality.
