Dental Crowns

 Do you have a tooth that’s missing a substantial amount of its structure? Dental crowns are tooth-shaped dental appliances that are completely hollow on the inside and designed to fit over an existing tooth. Dental crowns are one of the most common forms of restorative dentistry today.  They can be made from porcelain, cement, or other materials, with the most common being either 100% porcelain or zirconia.

Dental crowns are a great way to save your natural teeth while also improving your smile and confidence. When you have a severely damaged tooth, a crown can provide you with a strong and durable alternative. This is most commonly used for restorative purposes to save, protect, and strengthen a significantly compromised or weakened tooth. Dental crowns are sometimes also used for cosmetic reasons in the form of veneers to correct aesthetic imperfections.

If you have a tooth that has been damaged through an accident or injury, a dental crown may be the solution to help restore the strength and look of your smile. You might need a crown if you’ve had too much decay to stop it with a filling alone. Or perhaps you have a tooth that is severely damaged from decay or fracture or chipped so badly that you can’t even tell it was once whole. A crown could help restore its normal shape and function without undergoing more complex procedures like an implant.


Your smile can make or break your self-confidence, and the appearance of your teeth affects the way you interact with others every day. A bridge can help you achieve that instantly recognizable white smile you’ve been seeking.

A dental bridge can be used to replace a single missing tooth or any number of teeth. It is a dental appliance thought to bridge the gap between your teeth where one tooth or a section of teeth is missing. The basic dental bridge design consists of two dental crowns on either end of a “bridge” of replacement teeth.

If you have missing teeth, you may benefit from a dental bridge. It can protect nearby teeth from shifting into their place, protect your jawbone from fracturing, and help you eat and speak more comfortably. The process for getting a dental bridge varies according to the type of bridge you are having placed. At D&R Dentistry, our dentists can walk you through the steps and process for each to help you decide which type of bridge is the right one for you.

Getting a dental crown or a dental bridge is relatively simple and usually only requires two office visits to our dental office in Miami. During your first appointment, our professionals examine your mouth and talk with you about your goals. During the first visit, we take impressions of your existing teeth and make any necessary space adjustments. We also design and manufacture your new tooth-shaped attachments, called abutments. Once everything is ready, we place the bridge or the crown in its final position during a single appointment.
