What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are dental prosthetics that can be made from a variety of different materials. They encase your natural tooth, protecting its health and adding durability. Dental crowns are best for repairing teeth with extensive decay or damage. Once placed, you can eat your favorite foods without feeling pain or worrying about further damage.
To design a crown for your decayed or damaged tooth, Dr. Carson will take an imprint of your bite. Typically, it takes between 10 and 14days for our local labs to complete lab work.
To ensure that you receive quality crowns in Cleveland, our team will explain various available materials, including gold, porcelain, and other natural options, and guide you in making the right choice for your needs, lifestyle, and budget.
Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?
Besides repairing extensively damaged teeth, we also use dental crowns for implant-supported tooth restoration or to seal teeth after a root canal. You may need a dental crown to:
- Repair severe cavities and prevent further decay
- Cover a cracked or broken tooth
- Anchor dental bridges
- Protect your tooth after a root canal procedure
- Improve your smile
- Cover deep tooth discoloration
- Complete a dental implant
What Are Dental Bridges?
Our Cleveland dental bridges are best for those who have several missing teeth in a row. As the name suggests, bridges use adjoining teeth as anchors, providing a permanent solution. Just like a dental crown, a dental bridge is designed to provide long-lasting relief for your missing teeth. They also offer additional benefits beyond replacing your missing teeth. These benefits include:
- Improved speech
- Preserved facial structure
- Improved self-confidence and smile
- Restored bite function
- Prevention of teeth shifting
The process of fixing dental bridges is quite similar to that of crowns. Dr. Carson will shape the neighboring teeth for crowns to act as support for the pontic (replacement tooth). He will then take impressions to ensure a precise custom fit. Alternatively, the bridge could be supported by a pair of dental implants.

Even if you are not a patient of record, Dr. Carson will do his best to work with you and evaluate your smile to determine your needs and whether we are the right team to provide your care.
Caring for Your Dental Crown or Bridge
While dental crowns and bridges provide long-term solutions, they are prone to damage, especially if you chew hard foods, such as ice. Dental diseases causing bone or tooth loss can also loosen crowns and bridges. Therefore, you should take care of these prosthetics for them to last as long as possible.
Observing good oral hygiene is the best way to have crowns and bridges that last a lifetime. Brushing your teeth daily, using interdental brushes to clean between them, and using antimicrobial mouth rinses can improve its lifeline. Our dentists will guide you on at-home hygiene techniques and answer any questions you have about caring for your restoration.
