Dental Crowns and Bridges at Richard S. Bernstein D.D.S, Farmington Hills
Dental crowns and bridges are among the most common dental procedures. You may have noticed these restorations in other people's smiles - they might be metal, unnaturally opaque (chalky looking or yellow), or have darkened edges. These effects are unnecessary with today's dental materials. Dr. Richard Bernstein has an extensive background in cosmetic dentistry, and uses only the most functional and aesthetic materials.

Why dental crowns are used
- Restore a damaged or decayed tooth.
- Protect a weakened tooth. This is usually needed after endodontic therapy (a root canal procedure).
- Cover cosmetic flaws on a tooth that isn't a good candidate for dental veneers.
- Crowns affixed to implants can replace missing teeth securely and permanently.
- A bridge supported by crowned abutment teeth, can replace teeth within a relatively short amount of time.
The procedure for bridges is essentially the same as for crowns. A bridge consists of one or more replacement teeth, and two or three crowns, which support the unit. Bridges are a less permanent, but more economical, tooth replacement option than dental implants.
Caring for Crowns and BridgesThese restorations have a longevity ranging from 10 to 25 years, depending on how you care for them. Excellent oral hygiene is imperative; taking care to clean especially well around the margins of the crown, and under bridges. Be sure and visit us every three to six months for teeth cleanings.
