Crowns and Bridges

Crowns, commonly known as caps, cover and protect a tooth when it has become so weakened that a regular filling will no longer work and it is prone to breaking.  A bridge is when a false tooth replaces a missing tooth by crowning the teeth next to the empty space and bridging across a crown so the gap is filled.
Having a crown or bridge made requires two appointments.  At your first visit, we prepare the tooth and take impressions.  Then, the impressions are sent to the dental lab which they use to make your permanent crown or bridge.  In the meantime, a temporary crown or bridge is made and inserted.

At your second visit, the temporary crown or bridge is removed and the permanent one is cemented into place.  This usually takes about 15 minutes and in most cases no anesthetic is needed.  We ask the patient for final approval of the appearance and there is no charge to send it back to the lab if needed.

Custom Shade Matching: My lab is absolutely top quality and conveniently are right here in Nampa.  If desired, patients can be sent over for a custom shade match.  This ensures that the crown or bridge looks as natural as possible.

If you think you need a crown, or have been told that you need a crown and would like a second opinion, we would be happy to provide a free consultation.
