Crowns & Bridges

Crowns & Bridges

Commonly referred to as a ‘cap’, a crown is a great solution for teeth that have had large fillings, root canal treatment, or to improve one’s bite. They are also excellent at preventing tooth fracture which can often lead to root canal treatment or even loss of the tooth.

A bridge is similar to a crown in that it helps protect and maintain your teeth. The function of a bridge is to replace a missing tooth or teeth with a permanent, fixed solution that does not have to be removed and cleaned. Often times a bridge will help solve multiple problems with one solution by replacing missing teeth and improving the strength of adjacent teeth with large fillings or previous root canals.

At King Street Dental, we are proud to offer a wide variety of materials for your crowns and bridges. Working in conjunction with local laboratories, we offer products that will be matched to your individual smile, bite, and habits. We offer porcelain, metal-free crowns and bridges that have beautiful aesthetics, closely matching the shine and translucency of natural teeth, perfect for those needing treatment near the front of the mouth. We also offer porcelain fused to metal crowns and bridges, which combine the look of porcelain with a greater level of strength, typically needed in the back of the mouth.

We treat each case on an individual basis and will work with you to ensure that you get the look and feel that you desire.
