Dental Crowns And Bridges Redlands - Older Couple SmilingIf you want a smile that's your crowning glory, you may need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.

Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay. There are many different types of crowns available today to choose from, as crowns can be made of porcelain, metal (gold), or both. With the many advances in technology, newer crown materials such as e.max and Zirconium-based crowns provide excellent esthetics and strength to your mouth.

A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress in your bite. Just like a crown, your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, a combination of these materials, as well as some of the newer materials (e.max and zirconium). The success of any bridge depends on its foundation – the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is anchored or attached.


The process of making a crown or a bridge includes many steps that start in our office with preparing the teeth and taking impressions. A temporary crown or bridge will be placed on your teeth after this appointment and until your final restoration is completed and returned from the laboratory. Crowns and bridges are created in a dental laboratory from your custom teeth impression that allows the dental lab technician and master ceramist to examine all aspects of your bite and jaw movements. The completed work is sent back to our office, and after necessary checks and adjustments, it is cemented or bonded onto your teeth.

Call our office today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Vines and Dr. Kwong to see if crowns or bridges are the right restorative treatment for your damaged or missing teeth.
