Crowns and Bridges

Custom Made Prosthetics

Dental crowns and bridges are custom made prosthetics that are made to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. Crowns are fitted over remaining tooth structure or over an implant.  Bridges cover the teeth adjacent to a space to replace the missing teeth. Crowns and bridges are cemented into place and therefore are non-removable. They achieve both the function and appearance of natural teeth.

FAQ: What should I expect when I have a crown or bridge procedure?

The associated teeth will be prepared to assure a proper fit. An impression is taken and is used by the lab to fabricate your restoration. You will be fitted with a temporary crown/bridge until your custom restoration is ready for placement, 3-5 weeks.

Dr. Shipley is the first dentist that took time with me and was very professional.
