Love Your Smile Again With Dental Crowns and Bridges
Natural-Looking, Permanent Restorations
When you have a severely decayed or missing tooth, it affects the way you look and feel. It is important to schedule a visit for tooth restoration as soon as possible to protect your comfort and health. San Dieguito Dental Group provides you with numerous restoration options, including dental crowns, CEREC® crowns, and dental bridges, to ensure that you get the dental care that is right for you.
Dental crowns are like caps that fit over your existing tooth structure. Dental crowns are shaped and tinted to match your natural teeth. When you have had an injury, for example, and your tooth has been fractured, San Dieguito Dental Group will file down the tooth to save the structure and root but will use a dental crown to cover the remaining structure, allowing you to chew normally while still looking your best. Dental crowns are bonded into place for an easy to care for, permanent restoration. The entire process takes three visits over the span of three weeks.
CEREC Dental Crowns
CEREC dental crowns are placed similarly to traditional crowns but are completed in a single visit. Using CAD software, San Dieguito Dental Group is able to create a 3D representation of your mouth using dusting powder and a digital wand. The data is uploaded into CAD software, allowing us to immediately design your new porcelain crown. The crown is then crafted onsite by a milling machine and our doctors bond it permanently into place. You can have a new crown in one visit without temporary crowns or goopy impressions.
Dental bridges replace missing teeth. Made up of dental crowns that are fused together, dental bridges are bonded into place just like regular crowns are. The center unit functions as the tooth replacement while the end units are the anchors. Dental bridges do require that your natural teeth on either side of the space be filed down to accommodate bonding but patients find that the permanence and comfort more advantageous.

"This is the best dental practice I had ever visited. The front desk staff is great and the offices are really comfortable and open. I had some issues regarding a cracked tooth and Dr. Cordonnier is probably the best dentist I've had. I felt such little pain and soreness from a difficult procedure. She is also a great person. The two Bethany's, both dental assistants, were equally as great. Can't recommend enough."
