Crown Bridge

Crown and bridges are fixed dental restorations. They are used for replacing missing teeth or for restoring broken and damaged teeth. At Western Piedmont Dental, we provide superior and esthetically pleasing crowns and bridges.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

We believe that while smaller cavities can be easily fixed with the help of fillings but when it comes to large cavities, fillings may be not the right choice. Under such circumstances, we prefer crowns. They make the restored teeth look esthetically pleasing and crowns are also more durable and long-lasting.

Here are some advantages of opting for dental crowns:

  • If a tooth undergoes a root canal, it becomes weak. There is a need to protect this tooth and a dental crown is the best way to do so. It helps to protect as well restore the tooth structure.
  • A dental crown comes with an esthetic advantage. It not only restores the original shape of the tooth but is also strong and durable. At Western Piedmont Dental, we make it a point to match the color of the crown with the color of the adjacent teeth. As a result, no one will know you have a crown and it will improve your smile.
  • Did you know that dental crowns last longer than nearly all other dental restorations? We make sure that the dental crowns are made from high-quality and durable materials so the risk of them getting damaged or breaking is minimal.

At Western Piedmont Dental, we ensure you regain your confidence and function with our superior dental crowns.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

If you have several teeth missing and are not a good candidate for dental implants, dental bridges could be just what you need. They are a much better option than removable dentures and will improve your smile.

Here are some advantages of getting a dental bridge:

  • If you have missing teeth, you will find it difficult to chew food. This can lead to indigestion and in some cases malnutrition. With the help of a bridge, we, at Western Piedmont Dental, can restore the complete function of your teeth. Not only will you be able to eat and chew food but even your speech will improve.
  • A dental bridge ensures that the chewing force is distributed evenly across the teeth in your mouth. One or a few teeth are not strained or put under pressure while chewing. As a result, it helps to make chewing easier and more comfortable.
  • Missing teeth in the front can result in people getting self-conscious about the smile. When you get a dental bridge, you will no longer be worried about smiling as you will have a full set of teeth to flash.

Dental porcelain, also known as dental ceramic, is a material used to create dental restorations in laboratory settings by professional dental technicians. It is biocompatible, insoluble, and aesthetic with a hardness of 7 on the Mohs Scale, which makes it an effective material for dental restorations. Crowns, bridges, and veneers made of dental porcelain are lifelike dental restorations to provide the most effective teeth replacement to bring back the natural smile, appearance, and comfort.

Porcelain or ceramic used in dental restorations has the composition to achieve better aesthetic value and translucency than conventional ceramic.

The composition of dental feldspathic porcelain:

  • Kaolin 3-5%
  • Quartz (silica) 12-25%
  • Feldspar 70-85%
  • Metallic colorants 1%
  • Glass up to 15%


Porcelain dental crowns & bridges are an excellent option for dental restorations, especially for your front teeth, as they resemble the color and appearance of the remaining natural teeth. They are used to enhance the overall look and feel of the entire tooth surface to restore the natural size, color, and comfort. They are designed to protect and strengthen tooth structures and prevent damages that are not easy to restore or repair with fillings and other known procedures.

It typically takes a couple of weeks to construct Porcelain dental crowns & bridges in a laboratory setting after assessing and measuring the tooth structure of the concerned patient for the most personalized dental solutions.

The Porcelain dental crown procedure is performed by a licensed dentist with significant skills and experience. It is a two-visit treatment and starts with the preparation process when your dentist will remove some of the tooth structure across the treated area to accommodate the new Porcelain crown or bridge. Your dentist will also remove any compromised tooth structure, such as decayed or cracked teeth during the dental crown preparation process.

Temporary dental crowns are inserted in the treated area after the completion of the preparation process. They last until the insertion of permanent crowns to finish the dental restoration process. Porcelain crowns are inserted in place using a dental adhesive, that also has a conservative element for the restoration. They can also be used to protect dental implants or hold dental bridges in position to maintain the tooth structure.
