Achieve a World-Class Smile With Crowns & Bridges

Dr. Henry works with a trusted local lab to make sure your new restoration fits perfectly and blends in naturally with your other teeth. Depending on what’s best for your situation, your crown or bridge will be made from either monolithic zirconia or e.max lithium disilicate. Both materials are esthetically pleasing and will last for many years. We also use a digital scanner for dental impressions, which lets you avoid a goopy mess in your mouth.

Here are some of the options you have with a crown or bridge:

  • Crown for Tooth Repair – A crown caps a damaged or diseased tooth to strengthen it and prevent further problems.
  • Standard Fixed Bridge – This type of bridge is secured to your other teeth to replace one or more missing teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Crown – This restoration replaces a missing tooth and helps keep your jawbone healthy.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – By anchoring to dental implants, this bridge prevents the need to modify any of your healthy teeth.
  • Inlays and Onlays – Inlays are positioned on the top of the tooth, while an onlay covers the top and sides. These work well for repairs where a full crown isn’t needed.

Call Stephen R. Henry, DDS today at 650-718-8087 to schedule an appointment. Don’t go through life without a complete and healthy smile. Dental crowns and bridges in Foster City will give you something to smile about!

Common Questions About Dental Crowns and Bridges

How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

The exact lifetime you can expect from your new crown or bridge will depend on several factors, including the material used to construct the restoration, its location in your mouth, and your individual oral hygiene habits. In general, however, you can expect your crown or bridge to last at least five to seven years.

How much do dental crowns and bridges cost?

Your individual cost for crowns and bridges can vary widely, depending on your needs and treatment plan. Placing a single crown is less expensive than filling in a smile gap with a bridge consisting of several replacement teeth. Our team will be happy to cover all the details in full during a consultation and answer any questions you have about your treatment.

Will insurance cover dental crowns and bridges?

Many dental insurance plans will cover at least a portion of your treatment using crowns and bridges, usually half. We recommend you check with your insurance carrier to determine exactly what is and isn’t covered before you begin treatment. That way you’ll know your exact cost, and there won’t be any surprises in store.
