If your smile needs a little extra care to look its best, call or visit your trusted Chicagoland Dental Town office! Our experienced doctors and skilled team offer restorative dental services to help our patients restore damaged teeth or replace teeth they’ve lost. We use life porcelain crowns and bridges that look and function just like your natural teeth.

How Much Do Crowns And Bridges Cost?

Your smile is an important investment, but we understand that you want to make informed decisions. The total cost of your crown or bridge will depend on your condition and the number of teeth that need repair or replacement. Our team strives to offer our services at fair and affordable prices no matter your unique treatment needs.

What Is A Dental Crown?

A crown is also commonly known as a cap, and it’s a fixed prosthetic device that we use to cover or “crown” problem teeth. Crowns are made from porcelain and can fully restore the natural shape, strength, and function of a tooth. We recommend crowns to treat a variety of conditions based on a patient’s restorative needs, such as:

  • Covering a damaged or decayed tooth
  • Holding a fractured tooth together after an injury
  • Sealing a tooth after root canal treatment
  • Improving the appearance of stained or discolored teeth
  • Capping a dental implant to replace a missing tooth

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

Even with good at-home care and regular brushing, no crown can last forever. The lifetime of your crown will depend on how well you maintain your oral health, but you can expect your crown to last up to 15 years. Be sure to visit our office if your crown comes loose as it will have to be repaired or replaced.

What Is A Dental Bridge?

Tooth loss not only affects your confidence but it also has lasting effects on your oral health and wellness. If you’re living with the loss of even just one tooth, you need to replace it as soon as possible. Dental bridges are an affordable way to achieve a fully restored smile.

Made from porcelain, a dental bridge helps prevent your surrounding teeth from shifting out of alignment and preserves the look and health of your smile. A bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth (called pontics). The pontics are attached to the teeth on either side of the gap in your smile (called abutment teeth) and bonded in place to fill the open space. Bridges can also redistribute proper bite forces and maintain a proper bite. Without replacing your missing tooth, you may be at increased risk for tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ, and orthodontic issues.

How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?

As with any dental restoration, you can maintain your bridge with good at-home care and oral hygiene. You can expect your dental bridge to last up to 15 years before needing to be repaired or replaced. Be sure to maintain a regular dental checkup schedule and call us if your bridge becomes loose or breaks.
