Strengthen Your Teeth With Crowns & Fill in Gaps With Bridges

Also known as dental “caps,” dental crowns improve your smile by:

  • Protecting teeth that have been damaged due to injury, failing restorations, wear over the years, or tooth decay
  • Filling gaps in your smile with a dental bridge or as dental implant restorations

We provide strong, long-lasting dental crowns made of either porcelain or zirconia. Both materials are created to blend in perfectly with your existing teeth. Dr. Swartzentruber or Dr. Keahey will:

  • Take digital X-rays of your mouth to fully inspect its condition
  • Provide you with a temporary crown to cap your tooth in the meantime
  • Have a dental crown quickly but expertly made to look and feel natural in your smile
  • Gently bond the crown to your tooth
  • Ensure that the crown fits perfectly and gives you the look and function you want

Dental bridges fill in gaps in your smile left by missing teeth. Dental crowns are used to create your bridge, which will remain in place by attaching to existing teeth on either side of the gap. We also provide bridges supported by dental implants. With implant-supported bridges, we won’t need to modify your other teeth, as the bridge will anchor securely to two or more implants.

You’ll be able to eat much more comfortably and enjoy increased confidence thanks to your beautiful new smile. Your oral health will also benefit greatly from filling in the space in your smile. Missing teeth can cause your other teeth to shift and your jawbone to deteriorate over time, which leads to other dental and even overall health issues.

Dental Sedation Makes Sure You’re Comfortable During Your Procedure

We offer sedation dentistry to calm your nerves and ensure you feel no discomfort during your procedure. Our sedation options include:

  • Laughing gas to temporarily relieve your stress. This will be inhaled and wear off shortly after your treatment so you can feel completely normal later in the day.
  • Oral conscious sedation, which is taken as a pill and is stronger than laughing gas. You’ll be in a completely relaxed state but still able to communicate and walk. A friend or family member will need to drive you to your appointment and help you get settled at home afterward.

Call Carmichael Dental Care at 334-600-1423 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Swartzentruber for Montgomery dental crowns and bridges. He’ll make sure your smile benefits the most from our treatment.

Common Questions About Dental Crowns & Bridges

How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

For most dental crowns and bridges, our patients can expect them to last at least five to seven years. The life of your restoration will ultimately depend on your at-home hygiene regimen and the types of foods you eat.

How much do dental crowns and bridges cost?

It is nearly impossible to say how much your new crown or bridge will cost until your dentist has had a chance to examine your mouth and work up a treatment plan. You’ll have a chance to ask any questions so that you know what to expect. We’ll make sure you have all the information needed to decide what’s best for your situation.

How are dental bridges attached?

Conventional bridges are anchored to dental crowns that your dentist places on the teeth surrounding the gap left by missing teeth. You may also have the option of an implant-supported bridge. With that option, we attach a series of crowns to dental implants instead of your teeth. Using implants eliminates the need to modify healthy tooth structure.
