What are crowns?


Crowns are caps that are placed over a tooth or attached to a dental implant. Crowns protect your teeth from further harm and improve the appearance of a cracked, stained, chipped, or broken tooth.


There are four common types of crowns:



A ceramic crown is made from a porcelain-based material used to retain the natural look of your visible teeth.


Porcelain Fused to Metal

These crowns are known for their strength and durability while offering a natural look.


Gold Alloys

This type of crown is used when more strength is needed, particularly for patients who grind their teeth at night.


Base Metal Alloys

These strong, corrosion-resistant crowns are used for teeth with little existing tooth structure to support the crown restoration.


Your consultation with the team helps determine the best option for you.


What is a dental bridge?


A dental bridge replaces a gap where there’s a missing tooth or teeth. It consists of one or more prosthetic teeth attached with a crown or crowns to your natural teeth on either side of the gap.

You can trust the expertise at Advanced Dental Care of Towson to treat your condition with the highest level of care.


Why do I need a crown or bridge?


Crowns and bridges are used for various reasons, from cosmetic to restorative. Crowns and bridges can:


  • Fix a discolored tooth
  • Fix a misshapen tooth
  • Protect a tooth after a root canal
  • Cap a tooth for additional strength
  • Substitute a large filling
  • Attach to a dental implant


Whether you’re looking to create a pleasant appearance or restore the loss of functionality, crowns and bridges are a good solution. Talk to your professional at Advanced Dental Care of Towson to learn more. 


How are crowns and dental bridges applied?


At Advanced Dental Care of Towson, preserving the natural tooth is always the goal to help maintain the supporting bone structure and stability of the surrounding and adjacent teeth.

Your dentist takes an impression of your teeth and bite to make a crown that looks and functions like your natural tooth. Then all the decay is removed from your tooth or teeth. Another impression is made to ensure the final crown will fit properly when placed.


In some cases, crowns are put on in one procedure. Other treatments might require a temporary crown to be placed while your final restoration is created. In the final step, the crown is either attached to the dental implant or adheres to your remaining natural tooth with a dental sealant.

Crowns and bridges often last a lifetime with proper care and oral hygiene.
