Dental Crowns and Bridges in Baltimore, MD

Dental crowns and bridges are effective solutions to restore teeth that have been lost or severely damaged. Our crowns and bridges are designed to look natural, and they provide much-needed assistance with speaking and chewing. At Hamilton Family Dentistry, we use high-quality materials in our crowns and bridges to ensure they last as long as possible and deliver exceptional performance.

We take great care to ensure that your dental crowns and bridges blend seamlessly with your existing teeth and function like natural teeth. You will need to visit our clinic at least twice to receive dental crowns or bridges.

During your first visit, we will make impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory to create your custom crown or bridge. Once your restoration is ready, you can return to our clinic to have it fitted and ensure it fits properly.

  • How much is a dental crown?

  • How long do dental crowns last?

    Dental crowns usually last for 5 to 15 years, but some can last even longer, depending on various factors such as the durability of the material used, the level of oral hygiene, and the amount of wear and tear.

  • Does it hurt to get a dental crown or bridge?

    Dental crown and bridge procedures are generally pain-free, thanks to local anesthesia.

    The dental crown process involves two appointments: The first is for tooth preparation and impression taking, possibly involving tooth filing and a temporary crown. The second appointment is to place the permanent crown. While some sensitivity post-procedure is normal, it’s typically short-lived and manageable.

    The dental bridge process also employs local anesthesia, with a recovery period of about 1-2 weeks, during which soft foods and good oral hygiene can ease any minor discomfort.

    • Any discomfort experienced is usually considered minor compared to the significant benefits of improved dental functionality and aesthetics.
    • If severe pain or unusual symptoms occur, contacting a dentist promptly is crucial. Following your dentist’s aftercare directions is important.
  • What's the difference between a crown and a bridge?

    Dental Crown: A crown is a cap placed over a damaged or decayed tooth or an implant. It helps to provide support and maintains the appearance of the tooth.

    Dental Bridge: A dental bridge is a structure that is used to replace missing teeth. It comprises two crowns on either side of the gap and a series of false teeth (pontics) in between.

    While dental crowns are used to preserve existing teeth or implants, dental bridges are designed to fill spaces left by missing teeth. Often, adjacent teeth or implants are used to support the bridge.
