Crowns and Bridges in Forest Lake

Same Day Restorative DentistryModel of a crown

Our high-quality crowns and bridges are just two of our most popular restorative dentistry options. Not only can they help you achieve a more beautiful and confident smile, but they also combat common dental issues to give you the stronger teeth you deserve.

The professional and friendly Lake Dental team are true experts within this field and are always available to answer any queries you may have regarding these restorative treatments.

Dental crowns are made from a durable, tooth-coloured material and can be likened to a ‘cap’ that covers the visible surface of a tooth. They are usually made from ceramic or ceramic over a metal base and aim to restore and protect a tooth that has been subject to the following:

  • A weakened tooth structure
  • Trauma from injury
  • Large cavities or decay
  • Sizeable cracks

They are also used in dental implant restorations to act as a prosthetic (artificial) tooth.

The Crown Procedure

Thanks to our team’s expertise within this field, fitting a crown is a relatively straight-forward and comfortable procedure. In fact, the entire crown process can be completed in as little as two appointments – sometimes on the same day!

We begin with an initial consultation that serves as the preparation stage, where we prepare your tooth (or teeth) to receive the crown or bridge. This includes carefully reshaping the tooth to allow for a comfortable and perfect fit. Our team will then use technologically-advanced dental scanning equipment to create impressions of your teeth. These highly-precise impressions are then sent to our dental lab, so the custom crown-making process can begin.

Once our lab has finished making your permanent crown and it is ready to fit, a second appointment will involve fitting the crown. Once complete, you’ll be able to walk out of our practice with a strong, long-lasting, and beautiful tooth restoration. Often the whole process can be completed in a single day!

On the whole, the creation and fitting process of a dental bridge is very similar to that of a single crown. The process begins with our dentist preparing your teeth to receive their crowns, which will hold the bridge in place. The dentist will then take impressions of your mouth, which are sent to our dental lab to start the creation phase.

Once your custom-made dental bridge is back from the local laboratory, it will simply be fitted to your mouth, resulting in a more functional and stronger smile that you’re sure to feel confident about. Again, often the whole bridge can be completed in two visits – both on the same day.
