Dental Crowns & Bridges

White Palm Dental
Melbourne, Florida

Are you looking for solutions to restore a weak, damaged, or missing tooth? If so, you may want to consider a dental crown or bridge made to match your smile. At White Palm Dental, we use proven techniques to deliver quality, durable restorations that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Dental crowns and bridges can address:

  • Severely decayed or damaged teeth
  • Weak, chipped, or fractured teeth
  • Misshapen, worn, or otherwise not-so-perfect teeth
  • One or several missing teeth

Dental crowns and bridges can address many issues at once, improving your smile's health, function, and appearance.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom restorations that fully encase or “cap” weak or damaged teeth, restoring their form and function. We offer the highest quality crown materials, including porcelain (tooth-colored), gold, and porcelain/metal combinations. The ideal crown material is based on your unique needs and circumstances. Your restoration will match your natural teeth, restoring the health, function, and esthetics of your smile.

What Are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is a fixed tooth replacement designed to "bridge" the space left by one or several adjacent teeth. It consists of one or several artificial teeth supported by crowns placed on existing teeth on either side of the gap. Our dental bridges are made from the same high-quality, esthetic materials as dental crowns, delivering natural results.

What Is the Dental Crown or Bridge Procedure?

The dental crown procedure involves preparing the affected tooth by removing some structure to make room for the crown. Next, we make digital or conventional impressions of your teeth for the lab to use to fabricate the restoration. You will leave with a temporary crown on the tooth for protection. Skilled lab technicians will create your new crown from the highest quality materials and ensure it provides a precise fit for enhanced comfort and function. 

The dental bridge procedure is similar to a crown. It involves preparing the teeth on each side of the gap to accommodate the dental crowns that hold your restoration in place and then making impressions of the area. A temporary bridge will protect your prepared teeth as our partner dental lab creates your restoration.

After your crown or bridge is ready, Dr. McGavin will secure it to the prepared tooth or teeth and make any adjustments necessary for optimal comfort and function. Your restoration will look, feel, and function like natural teeth and, with proper care and maintenance, can last for many years!

What Are the Benefits of Dental Crowns and Bridges?

  • They Look Amazing: Dental crowns and bridges are custom-made to match your smile, leaving you with seamless results.
  • They Restore Confident Smiles: Your beautiful, natural-looking teeth will have you smiling with confidence once again.
  • They Are Durable: Our high-quality restorations are incredibly durable, delivering long-term healthy smiles.

How Should You Care for Dental Crowns or Bridges?

Caring for your crown or bridge is the same as caring for natural teeth. Make sure to brush and floss daily, wear a night guard if you grind your teeth in your sleep, wear a sports mouthguard if you play a contact sport, and avoid hard foods like ice or rock candy. We encourage you to keep up with routine dental exams and cleanings to address any concerns as they develop.
