Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers

Sometimes, a tooth or multiple teeth may need more restorative care than a composite bonding or filling can provide. If a tooth has lost important strength or structure due to a crack, break, root canal treatment, or decay, Dr. Mazzella may recommend a strong and cosmetically aesthetic cubic zirconia crown. In the case of a missing tooth or teeth, this might also incorporate a fixed bridge, depending on your recommended treatment plan. Veneers may be used in some cosmetic cases as well, when the strength of the tooth in question is not compromised.

Our process for crowns, bridges, and veneers are typically split into two appointments for your convenience. The first appointment involves cleaning, filling (if necessary), and shaping the tooth precisely for the new crown to fit over it comfortably. We then take a putty or a digital “impression” made with a 3d intra-oral wand scanner, which takes an intricately precise rendition of your teeth and bite, which we send to our expert lab technicians. We custom make a temporary acrylic crown or bridge for you to wear for a few weeks while the area heals, and your permanent crown or bridge is fabricated. In your shorter follow up appointment, Dr. Mazzella will ensure that the final fit, feel, and aesthetic is perfect, making any micro-adjustments as necessary, before permanently cementing the final restoration.

The national average for the lifespan of a crown is 8-10 years. We aim for longer than this average for your crown, and will show you how to properly clean, floss, and take care of it to extend longevity.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "I visited the office to have my periodontal work done. I visit every 3 months for this. Debbie does a wonderful job cleaning my teeth and also advises me regularly what I am doing right and what may need more attention. Dr. Mazzella always stops in to take a look at my teeth and just chat for a minute or two. I am very comfortable in this office as everyone, including staff, is very friendly but also very professional. Dr. Mazzella is the best dentist I have been to in a very long time - I have been going to his office for almost 6 years and it has been a wonderful experience. I always recommend him if anyone asks about my dentist."

    Gayle G
  • "I came into the office early on a Monday morning without an appointment with a tooth emergency. I thought the best I could get not bein in their schedule was either wait a long time to get seen between other patients or an antibiotic prescription and a time to come back later in the week. Instead, I was seen within 10 minutes and was done in a little over an hour. Dr Mazzella is the best and his team is the greatest in compassion and friendliness."
