Crowns & bridges

Dr. Patel is extensively trained in premier dental restoration solutions including dental crowns and bridges. Infinite Smiles believes you should never suffer physical or emotional pain from having a damaged or missing tooth.

What is a dental crown?

Damaged or decayed teeth can ruin your smile, make chewing uncomfortable and limit what you can eat.

A dental crown is a dental restoration that looks just like a real tooth. They are used to cover and restore function and strength to damaged teeth, teeth with large cavities and dental implants.

CEREC® same-day crowns

Same-day crowns are one of the greatest advancements in dental technology. We can make ceramic crowns that match the rest of your smile – and in only one appointment.

After producing a 3-D model of your crown, Dr. Patel will adjust for size and shade. Our chair-side milling machine will then create your perfect restoration out of a block of high-quality ceramic in minutes.

With an expert eye for detail, our master ceramist will quickly finalize your restoration in-house. This eliminates the need for you to wait weeks or even months like you would at other dentist offices.

Dr. Patel can make any changes right here before securely placing your crown on your natural tooth or implant post. In a little more than an hour, you can have a brand-new tooth that looks completely natural.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a fixed appliance used to bridge the gap left by a lost tooth or multiple missing teeth. The bridge helps maintain facial structure, keeps healthy teeth from moving and restores any lost ability to speak or chew.

We use state-of-the-art technology in-house to create the crowns that make up your custom-fit bridge. This ensures a quicker turnaround time than the weeks it would take an outside lab to create your restoration.

Deciding between implants and bridges

Because bridges require us to remove part of your healthy teeth, we typically recommend dental implants. Implants also prevent jawbone deterioration because they restore the chewing force to your jaw, strengthening and building up your bone.

If you need several implants restored with a bridge, our master ceramist can create the custom bridge in our lab. Alternatively, we can create custom-fit dentures that are permanently retained by implants.

With proper care; however, bridges can provide many years of beautiful smiles and improve your ability to chew and talk. Dr. Patel will discuss your tooth replacement options to determine if a bridge is the best option for you.

We look forward to seeing you!
