Dental crowns and bridges are often used to restore broken or missing teeth, but they can also be used as the primary teeth when natural teeth can’t be restored.
Crowns may become necessary due to a fracture in your tooth’s structure or tooth decay that could compromise the tooth's integrity. Most crowns are porcelain to match the natural color of your teeth and go virtually unnoticed in your smile. When crowns are placed across more than just one tooth, they are considered a bridge.
These dentistry services can help keep your teeth healthy if you have a tooth that is cracked, decayed, or broken in some way. Call Charlotte Emergency Dental today to learn more about dental crowns and bridges from professionals!

Dental crowns and bridges are a kind of restorative treatment that will completely cover your entire tooth. Crowns may become necessary due to a fracture in your tooth’s structure or due to tooth decay that could compromise the integrity of the tooth. Most crowns are porcelain to match the natural color of your tooth and go virtually unnoticed in your smile. When crowns are placed across more than just one tooth, they are then considered a bridge.
If your tooth has been damaged in some way, you may be in need of a dental crown. The most common reasons for needing a dental crown include:
If your teeth have become chipped or cracked, a dental crown can help prevent the problem from worsening.
A dental crown can be used to cover the affected area if you have a cavity or other dental decay and the tooth can’t be treated with a filling.
If gum disease has led to a receding gum line and you have exposed tooth roots, a dental crown can help protect the roots from infection.
A dental bridge is a false tooth secured to both sides of a missing tooth. In other words, a dental bridge spans the gap left by a missing tooth, connecting two healthy teeth. A dental bridge can be made of several materials, including porcelain, alloys, and gold.
A dental bridge can be used to replace one tooth or several teeth at a time. Before deciding what type of dental bridge you may need, it’s essential to understand that there are three types. The type of dental bridge you’re recommended will depend on the health of your surrounding teeth.
Your dentist will be able to determine your suitability for each type of bridge.
The first step in receiving a dental bridge is having your dentist examine the teeth and gums. The X-ray will allow your dentist to see the health of your teeth and gums, which is crucial in choosing the best dental bridge for you.
Once you’ve been given an X-ray, your dentist will clean and shape the gums around the teeth supporting the bridge. This can also be called "gum grafting." Your dentist will then take impressions of the teeth to determine each tooth's shape and size accurately.
Finally, your dentist will select the material for the bridge and have the bridge made by a dental lab. The dentist will then place the dental bridge, securing it to the teeth on either side.
The cost of a dental bridge will depend on your specific situation. Your insurance coverage, the type of dental bridge you receive, and the dental lab that makes the bridge will all affect the cost.
The average cost of a dental bridge will range from $500 to $1,250. Some dental bridges will require added fees, such as the cost of X-rays and the cost of having the dental lab make the bridge.
Charlotte Emergency Dental's team of dentists is here to help you with tooth-related issues. If you have a damaged tooth needing treatment, your dentist may recommend a dental crown or bridge.

Everyone was very nice from the moment I walked in. The doctor himself made me feel very comfortable and confident that nothing would go wrong. This place was excellent! And pain free! They saved me from having to go to an oral surgeon and he was able to get my tooth out within 10 minutes the SAME DAY I called!
I have terrible anxiety when it comes to dental work but I desperately needed my wisdom tooth removed. I went in scared to death and wound up leaving so excited about the experience! Once they numbed my gums it took maybe 2 minutes to pull it! Everyone was so nice and able to answer my questions and bear with my trepidation!
