Dental crowns are advanced restorations that fit over the top of your tooth to repair damage or decay. Dr. Julovich offers crowns crafted from a range of materials to meet any need. Strong, gold crowns may be recommended for molars, or we offer porcelain fused to gold crowns that offer a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. For more visible teeth, we may suggest all porcelain or ceramic crowns that can be custom-matched to flawlessly incorporate with the rest of your smile.
A fixed bridge restoration uses two dental crowns, one on each side, to support one or more replacement teeth. We can also use a fixed bridge to replace several consecutive missing teeth. The dental crowns are attached to healthy teeth on either side of the gap in your smile to support the prosthetic, recreating your flawless completed arch of teeth.
Patients who need dental crowns and fixed bridges should plan to visit our Zionsville dental office for two appointments. During the initial visit, we will need to prepare the teeth by removing damaged enamel and shaping the structure to allow for the additional thickness of the dental crown. Then, we take impressions that will be used by the lab to create a custom crown or bridge. Finally, we place a temporary restoration to protect your prepared teeth until we receive the final product from our lab. Once we receive your custom dental restoration, you’ll return to our dental office to exchange your temporary for a custom crafted dental crown or fixed bridge.
For patients who need to replace one or a few consecutive missing teeth, we can use dental crowns and fixed bridges anchored with dental implant posts to repair the smile. A single dental implant and dental crown can be used to restore one lost tooth. Consecutive replacement teeth can be attached to an implant post on either end to recreate the missing teeth, leaving patients with flawless, natural-looking and functioning smiles that will last for decades.
