Dental Crowns and Bridges in Bedford, Bloomington, Geist, and Greenwood, IN

Dental crowns and bridges are effective restorations when teeth are lost or severely damaged. Our crowns and bridges look natural and offer much-needed assistance with chewing and speaking. We use high-quality materials to ensure the restorations last as long as possible and provide exceptional performance.

We ensure your dental crowns and bridges blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth and will function like natural teeth. Often, buildups are needed in addition to the crown. This involves replacing missing tooth structure with a special filling material that can support the crown.

Before and After Dental Crowns

Crown Home Care Instructions

  • DO NOT DRIVE OR DRINK ALCOHOL WHEN TAKING PAIN MEDICATION
  • DO NOT EAT OR DRINK for at least 30 minutes after the crown has been placed.
  • Avoid eating hard, sticky, or chewy foods for at least 24 hours after your appointment.
  • Occasionally, a new crown can make your tooth slightly sensitive to chewing and hot or cold temperatures. This should reside in a few days or in some cases, may last a couple weeks.
    • If this sensitivity persists beyond two weeks or worsens at any point, please contact our office at 812-339-3427.
  • You may resume normal teeth brushing, but it is advised to brush gently around the area as the gum tissue may be sensitive for a couple days following treatment.
    • After 24-48 hours, you may resume normal flossing around the new crown.
    • Use any mouth rinse as you would normally
  • Allow a few weeks for your tongue to get used to the new crown. At first, it may feel different due to more “nooks and crannies” on the biting surface. This surface anatomy makes your tooth look like it did when it first appeared in your
    mouth.
  • Use Tylenol or Ibuprofen as needed for pain
  • Contact our office right away at 812-339-3427 if you develop any of the following:
    • Movement or looseness in the restoration
    • Sensitivity to sweet foods
    • Peculiar taste from the restoration site
    • Breakage of a piece of material from the restoration
    • Sensitivity to pressure
  • What is a dental crown?

    Dental crowns are used when a tooth has a very large filling that exceeds the natural tooth structure, your tooth had root canal therapy or for cosmetic reasons.

    Dental crowns have many applications. The first is to be installed over a damaged tooth to cap the existing structure, which restores the damaged tooth so it can be used normally. Crowns can also be attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth; these implants will be surgically inserted into the jawbone and serve as the root for the tooth. This procedure keeps the crown steady and secure.

    Additionally, dental crowns may also be used to provide extra support for dental bridges. They do not require any special treatment and can be brushed and flossed as normal.

  • What is a dental bridge?

    Dental bridges are commonly used when a patient has lost one or more teeth. They are called bridges because they consist of one or more replacement teeth that bridge the gap that was created when the original teeth became lost. Dental bridges can be secured using abutment crowns on each end or by using permanently installed precision metal mechanisms. We custom design each component of a dental bridge to ensure that it looks natural and provides the desired performance.
