Crowns and Bridges Auburn, ME

Our custom dental crowns and bridges in Auburn, ME are designed for optimal durability as well as aesthetics. Each of our crowns and bridges in Auburn, Maine is matched to your smile, providing natural-looking results that restore your bite’s function and performance.

Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Crowns—sometimes referred to as “caps”—cover your tooth to protect weak or damaged structures. Unlike fillings that go inside of small cavities, crowns completely encompass the tooth like a superficial shell or helmet. Their strength allows you to continue biting and chewing normally, without worrying about additional damage to the tooth underneath.

You may need a crown if your tooth is affected by:

  • Aggressive decay
  • Severe fractures or wear
  • Previous root canal treatment
  • Erosion and hypersensitivity
  • Single-tooth replacement with a dental implant
  • Replacement of an older, large filling

When to Get a Dental Bridge

Losing a tooth can throw off the balance of your entire smile. Not only does the open space pose an aesthetic concern, but it can also cause the surrounding teeth to shift out of alignment. Dental bridges are a traditional option for tooth replacement and ideal for people who may not qualify for a dental implant. They can also be used on top of pairs of dental implants to fill in the space of 3-4 teeth at a time.

Your Comfort is Important to Us

Most crown and bridge treatments require two appointments. In-between, we’ll fit you with a temporary restoration while the permanent one is being handcrafted at our lab. Ensuring your comfort at all times is our top priority. In addition to gentle care techniques, our office is also happy to offer in-house inhalation sedation during all restorative treatments.
