At Montane Dental Care we are committed to using the finest-quality dental restorations to keep your smile looking and feeling great. If you have a tooth that has been weakened by decay, grinding or trauma, a dental crown can protect it from future damage. A dental bridge is similar to a crown, although it serves a different purpose. A fixed bridge comprises a set of specialized crowns designed to replace a missing tooth: two crowns secure an artificial tooth in place, filling the gap in your smile.
To learn if a porcelain crown or dental bridge is right for you, please contact Montane Dental Care today by completing the form on this page or calling 510-795-0444 to schedule a free consultation with experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Jorge Montane. Our bilingual Spanish-speaking staff proudly serves the Fremont, Newark and Union City communities of California.
Over time, decay, cracks and large fillings can compromise the strength and health of a tooth. To protect these vulnerable teeth, crowns completely cover the tooth, absorbing the force of chewing and preventing further damage.
During your procedure, Dr. Montane will remove the damaged tooth structure and prepare your tooth for the dental crown. We offer crowns in a wide range of materials, such as porcelain, gold and ceramic with a metal base. Many of our patients choose all-porcelain crowns for their dental restorations, due to their beautiful, life-like appearance.
Choosing the right crown for you requires the consideration of factors such as:
- Your bite
- The location of the damaged tooth
- Your individual goals
- Personal preference
- Longevity concerns
During your initial consultation with Dr. Montane, he will evaluate your oral condition, discuss your goals and concerns and explain all of your treatment options.
If you suffer from a missing tooth and are not a good candidate for a dental implant, a dental bridge can help restore the appearance of your smile. Not only do dental bridges replace missing teeth and provide complete, beautiful smiles, they also promote oral health and well-being by preventing your remaining teeth from shifting.
Dental bridges are anchored by crowns and blend seamlessly with your existing teeth. Bridges do have special cleaning needs and require diligence and attention. Floss threaders and special tooth brushes can help make your daily hygiene routine easier.
How Much Do Crowns and Bridges Cost?
While generally very affordable, the cost of crowns and bridges can vary widely from patient to patient based on the extent of work needed or the materials from which your crowns are custom-crafted. During your initial consultation with Dr. Montane, he will explain all of your options and provide an accurate estimate of what you can expect to pay for your chosen procedure. Our helpful staff will be happy to go over all of our payment and finance options with you.
