What are crowns and bridges made from? 
A dental laboratory creates crowns and bridges from porcelain. Each crown or bridge is specially made by a laboratory technician based on an impression of the mouth, taken after preparing the tooth or teeth to receive the restoration. The process takes about two weeks total.

Will crowns and bridges blend into my smile? 
Porcelain mimics the natural teeth’s light-reflecting qualities and color. Additionally, the dental laboratory can create the crowns or bridges with the color of your natural teeth in mind, ensuring they blend in naturally regardless of the shade of your teeth.

Can crowns and bridges help me? 
Dental crowns and bridges are similar in their design but accomplish different things. A dental crown prevents further damage to a weakened tooth. Crowns are often used after a root canal to stabilize the large filling, but can also help improve the appearance of a tooth, restore the surface of a worn tooth, hold a dental bridge in place, or replace a tooth alongside a dental implant. A bridge replaces a missing tooth surrounded by two natural teeth.
