Crowns and Bridges

South Point Dentistry offers a number of options to restore teeth that have been damaged or lost.Your dentist can determine which ones best meet your needs.

Crowns strengthen damaged teeth,allowing them to function normally again. Porcelain crowns like Zirconia crowns are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. There are other materials besides porcelain that can be used to make dental crowns, such as all metal crowns or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns also known as PFM crowns. Our dentists would be happy to discuss the pros and cons of these various options with you.

Chances are you talk to people who have crowns or bridgework every single day and don’t even realize it. Dental crowns and bridges are designed to look just like your natural teeth and are of the most common ways to restore a single tooth or several teeth.It’s easiest to think of a crown as a “cap” that fits over a damaged, decayed, or unattractive tooth, completely covering the tooth above the gum line. This is different from veneer, which covers only a significant amount of structure above the gum line, a crown is the restoration of choice.

Types of Crowns and Bridges :

Metal fused to porcelain(PFM)

  • Can be made of non precious cast metal such as cobalt chromium or silver and gold fused to porcelain.
  • Less cosmetically appealing with possible unsightly grey lines at the gums.
  • Require more tooth structure to be removed
  • Makes the gums more vulnerable to decay anf inflammation with metal allergies
  • Porcalain may fracture or chip from the metal


  • Metal free and best option foa all anterior and molar teeth
  • Natural translucency for a realistic appearance
  • Milled from a single block of crystal (no metal)
  • Less bulky and requires minimal removal of natural tooth structure
  • 5 times stronger than metal fused to porcelain
  • Matches the natural look of your teeth almost perfectly


  • Metal free and best cosmetic option for front teeth
  • Made from quartz (a strong glass ceramic)
  • Less bulky and requires minimal removal of natural tooth structure
  • Ideal blend of translucency and lifelike appearance
  • Excellent blend of esthetic, durability and strength
  • Resistant to fracture and chipping

Crowns can also be used to create a realistic replacement for a missing tooth. This is done with bridgework, which spans the space of the missing tooth and requires at least three crowns,Two of those crowns will be placed over healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth; these healthy teeth are called abutment teeth. The two crowned abutment teeth become become supports for a third crown placed in between; that third crown is called a pontic. If more than one tooth is missing, more crowns will be needed to bridge the gap between the abutment teeth.

The number of abutment teeth necessary to replace missing teeth is determined by the number of missing teeth, the size and length of the abutment tooth roots, the amount of bone support each abutment tooth has, as well as where in the mouth the missing tooth is located.For example, if you have three missing teeth, four abutment teeth may be necessary, thereby creating a seven-tooth bridge. Your dentist will determine the type of bridge you need to achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.

Taking care of your crowns and bridges :

Just as you do with natural teeth, you’ll need to be sure to brush and floss your crowns and bridgework everyday to reduce the buildup of dental plaque.Avoid using your teeth to open packages or to break thread, and if you grind your teeth, you may want to invest in a night guard to protect your dental work.
