Dental crowns and bridges are some of the most popular procedures widely available from dentists almost anywhere. While these dental crownsimportant dental restorations may seem straight forward, they are more complex than they first appear. Learn more about dental crowns and bridges with Dr. Roland Markarian at Golden Dental in Lancaster, CA.

Dental Crowns
A dental crown fits over a tooth to protect it from damage. Crowns most often protect teeth which have undergone root canal therapy, but can also help in cases of damaged teeth, trauma to the tooth or to improve the appearance of a misshapen tooth. Carefully carved by a dental laboratory technician from a block of ceramic, porcelain dental crowns are the most natural looking crown option. However, crowns come in various materials like metal, metal mix or porcelain fused to metal in different price ranges to fit your budget.

Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are easy to picture. Simply think of three dental prosthetic teeth in a row. The two outside prosthetic teeth are actually crowns, and the center tooth replaces a missing tooth. The crowns fit onto the healthy teeth surrounding the gap, and the center prosthetic fills it. This makes chewing and speaking easier and helps keep the side effects of tooth loss like sagging facial skin or premature aging at bay.

Dental Crowns and Bridges in Lancaster, CA
Your dentist will place your dental crown or bridge using similar procedures. Your dentist first prepares the tooth to receive the crown. In the case of a bridge, both surrounding teeth are prepared. The process involves removing parts of the sides and tops of the tooth to make room for the crown to fit over it. The crown will fully encompass the tooth and your dentist will permanently affix it using dental cement.
