Tooth Crowns and Bridges in East Peoria, IL

Tooth crowns and bridges in East Peoria are fixed prosthetic devices for missing or injured teeth. These devices are securely attached to existing teeth or implants and function like regular teeth. At our practice, we have successfully treated patients of all ages with custom-fitted tooth crowns and bridges.

What is a Tooth Crown or Tooth Bridge?

A tooth crown is used as a cover for a cracked or decayed tooth. Crowns for teeth protect the damaged tooth from further injury. If you are missing teeth, a tooth bridge may be the solution. These devices are created using pontic teeth that are supported by surrounding tooth crowns. Call our office today to learn more about your tooth crown and bridge options.

How Can I Get a Tooth Crown or Bridge for Teeth?

Scheduling an appointment with our office is the first step for receiving tooth crowns and bridges in East Peoria. We’re committed to helping you restore your smile through effective treatment. At your consultation, one of our dentists will examine your teeth and determine whether a tooth crown or bridge suits your needs.

What is the Cost of a Dental Bridge?

Your individual dental bridge cost is determined by how many teeth require replacement and the materials used. Some insurance plans provide coverage for the procedure, so be sure to call your provider before treatment begins. To further manage the bridge cost, ask us about our flexible financing plans. These plans split the bridge cost among easy monthly payments.

What is the Cost of a Tooth Crown?

As with most dental treatments, the dental crown cost will depend on the complexity of your case. A tooth crown needed for medical reasons typically receives partial insurance coverage. If your plan doesn’t cover the tooth crown procedure, our financing plans can help make the treatment affordable.

Types of Tooth Crowns

Tooth crowns are created from several different materials. A ceramic crown is often used for patients who require a front tooth crown, since they most closely match natural teeth. Your dentist may also recommend porcelain crowns or gold crown tooth devices, which are extremely durable. Contact our office to find out which tooth crown option works for you.

Types of Dental Bridges

Most patients receive a traditional fixed dental bridge, which is made using pontic teeth and supporting crowns to form a straight row of teeth. A cantilever bridge is used when there are teeth on only one side of the affected area. For front teeth, Maryland bridges, which are supported by a metal framework, are often recommended.

Beginning the Dental Crown Procedure

The crown procedure typically takes place over two appointments. During the first visit, the tooth is either filed down or filled in to accommodate the crown. Then, a mold is created that serves as the blueprint for the permanent crown. You’ll wear a temporary crown until the final device is complete. The permanent tooth crown is placed at the second appointment.

Beginning the Dental Bridge Procedure

During a bridge procedure, local anesthesia is applied so the dentist can make necessary adjustments to your teeth. A precise mold is created that serves as the blueprint for your bridge. You’ll wear a temporary dental bridge until the permanent bridge is created. At a second appointment, the final bridge is placed into your mouth.
