Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Bridges and Same-Visit Crowns

How can we help you?

At Doylestown Dental, our goal is to help you understand how good oral health can improve your quality of life and inspire you to a healthier smile. To do this, we take the time to explain things in detail and answer all your questions, no matter how small.

There's a lot to know about your dental care and we don’t expect you to be an expert, so please don’t ever feel embarrassed about asking a question. If it matters to you, it matters to us!

We have shared a few of the questions we hear most often from our patients, but your smile is unique so you probably have some of your own. If you don't see your question here, please don't hesitate to call our office or fill out our convenient online contact form.

Bridges and Same-Visit Crowns

Dental enamel is strong, in fact, it’s the hardest substance in the human body. But we depend on our teeth to do a lot of work over the years, and as strong as enamel is, it’s not indestructible.

At Doylestown Dental, we use crowns to restore function and appearance when your teeth start to break down. One example is a tooth that has already had multiple fillings. In this case, a crown is often the best solution to provide support and protection. Also, clenching or grinding your teeth (bruxism) can cause significant wearing and erosion and can damage your teeth before you realize it. Another situation where our doctors might recommend a crown is after a root canal to add strength and protection.

We design esthetic crowns that are made of porcelain and customized to blend seamlessly with your smile. You have the option of choosing a lab-fabricated crown that requires several visits, or our doctors can talk to you about state-of-the-art same-visit crowns that allow you to leave our office after your appointment and get on with your life.

Our all-porcelain dental crowns are made to replicate the appearance of dental enamel so they enhance your appearance as well as protect your oral health. If one of your teeth is damaged and you think a dental crown might be a good solution, please call us to schedule a consultation with Doylestown dentist Dr. Jacko or Dr. Siefker.
