What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a "cap" covering your tooth's entire surface. Dr. Bellegarrigue uses dental crowns to strengthen and protect weak or broken teeth or to bring beauty and harmony to misshapen or severely stained teeth.

We can use several materials to create dental crowns, each with specific pros and cons. When we plan your tooth restoration, Dr. Bellegarrigue will discuss each option with you, so you understand their benefits. 

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dr. Bellegarrigue may recommend a dental bridge order to restore a missing tooth. At North Tampa Dentistry, our patients often choose dental bridges to restore a tooth without the need for dentures or dental implants.

Dental crowns support a dental bridge's structure by using teeth adjacent to the missing tooth for support. A prosthetic tooth is shaded and shaped to match the missing tooth and cemented to the crowns using adhesive.

We carefully customize your dental bridge to look natural and blend harmoniously with surrounding teeth. Your Tampa cosmetic dentist, Dr. Bellegarrigue, will ensure that the dental bridge looks and feels amazing—restoring your ability to eat, chew, speak, and smile.

While placing these restorations, we will ensure you are comfortable throughout the process.

If you suffer from dental anxiety, we can even offer you oral sedation to help you relax.

Preparing the Tooth

The process for both placing a dental crown or bridge is similar. Dr. Bellegarrigue begins by preparing the tooth or teeth for the procedure.

He will first remove a small layer of tooth enamel to create a perfect fit for the crown or bridge. Next, Dr. Bellegarrigue cleans the tooth and places a temporary restoration to protect it.

You will wear the temporary for about two weeks while we wait for the custom dental lab to create the final crown or bridge. Our Tampa dental office will provide after-care instructions on how to care for your temporaries.

Placing the Dental Crown or Bridge on Your Tooth

When the permanent tooth crown or bridge is ready, you will return to our Tampa office, where we will remove the temporary and place the final restoration.

Bonding the new crown or bridge to your tooth is painless and stress-free. Dr. Bellegarrigue will ensure a tight and comfortable fit before sealing it.
