Dental Crowns & Bridge in Wheeling, Illinois

What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that we placed over damaged or decayed teeth. Crowns can restore an original tooth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance. Bridges serve a similar function but for multiple teeth. A bridge is a prosthetic device consisting of a false tooth (called a “pontic”) suspended between two crowns that cap neighboring, healthy teeth. 

At Northwest Implant Dental Spa, we can preserve diseased or broken teeth and replace missing teeth using custom-fitted dental crowns and bridges. Dr. Daniel Y. Kim, DDS, DICOI, and our office’s skilled dental technicians have the tools and years of experience to provide the care you need. Plus, we have our own prosthodontics lab and can offer same-day crowns

What to Know About Dental Crowns

When Dental Crowns Are Necessary

The first thing anyone will likely need to know about dental crowns is when they are necessary. 

There are three general uses for them:

  • To fix and strengthen cracked, chipped, or decayed teeth. 
  • To address cosmetic issues such as misshapen or discolored teeth. 
  • To cover implants or support larger fillings. 

Dental Crown Materials 

At Northwest Implant Dental Spa, we make dental crowns in-house using materials such as cubic zirconia, porcelain, resin, and palladium. The material we use will depend on a patient’s needs, preferences, and budget.

Same-Day Dental Crowns

In certain cases, we can produce and implant dental crowns in one day. We use our advanced prosthodontics technology to make custom-fitted crowns. To find out whether we can offer our same-day service for your situation, reach out to us.

How Long Do Crowns Last?

Crowns can last from 5 to 15 years. How long a crown will stay in good condition depends on its material, how well it is taken care of, and a patient’s dental hygiene habits. 

What to Know About Dental Bridges

When Is a Dental Bridge Used?

Dental bridges replace multiple missing teeth. Typically, they can replace up to three teeth. By getting a dental bridge, patients can improve their eating ability and restore their normal speech. Not only that, but they can prevent teeth from shifting and improve how they feel about their smile. 

What Materials Are Dental Bridges Made Of?

We make dental bridges in-house from the same materials we use for crowns. These include cubic zirconia, porcelain, resin, and palladium.

Why Is It Important to Fill Gaps in Teeth?

Filling gaps in teeth with a dental bridge can help restore a person’s smile and confidence while preventing other teeth from shifting out of place. Bridges are strong, durable, and natural-looking, making it easy for people to forget they ever had missing or damaged teeth. Additionally, bridges can preserve the structure of the jawbone by providing support for existing healthy teeth.

Have Questions?

  • When to Get Implant-Supported Dentures?

    Like traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are an option for those who have lost all or most of their teeth. They can be great for individuals who have recently lost teeth or struggled with traditional dentures.

  • How Long Do Implant-Supported Dentures Last?

    The dental implants can last for a lifetime. The dentures can last between 10 and 20 years, but that timeline depends on a person’s needs and dental hygiene. Our Wheeling prosthodontist can help patients understand the lifespan of their implant-supported dentures and how to best care for them.

  • How Long Does It Take to Recover from Oral Surgery?

    Like the surgery time, recovery varies by procedure. Patients may need to take days off work or school to recover.

    Our Wheeling oral surgeon at Northwest Implant Dental Spa provides patients with a recovery timeline and instructions for post-operation care that can include directions for taking antibiotics and pain medication, the types of food to eat, and whether to avoid strenuous physical activity.
