Crown & Bridge


Dental Crowns


Diagram of dental crown from office of dentist in Wasilla, AK.Crowns are the most comprehensive type of restoration that a tooth can receive. Encapsulating the entire portion of the tooth above the gum lines, crowns allow the tooth to continue functioning normally without their weak enamel breaking apart any further. They can be made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or gold. The location of the tooth to be treated will have an impact on which type of material you select.

When are crowns necessary?


A crown is typically needed when there are conditions such as:
•  Root canal therapy
•  Severe fractures or trauma
•  Deep tooth decay
•  Large, broken fillings

The Crown Treatment Process


The treatment for a crown involves two separate appointments. At your first visit, we will remove any existing restorations, damaged tooth surfaces or decay. The tooth is then shaped and an impression is taken, which we will use to create a customized crown. Our dentists then place a temporary restoration over the tooth to protect it until the next phase of treatment. In three weeks, the permanent crown is ready for delivery; the temporary restoration is removed, the tooth is cleaned, and the crown is bonded permanently into place.

If you need a crown but don’t have insurance coverage or are concerned about the cost, Aurora Dental can help. We offer affordable pricing and financing options to help our patients keep their smiles strong. Call our Wasilla, AK dental office today for more information.

Fixed Dental Bridges


A bridge is a restoration that replaces a missing tooth with a replacement crown. The false tooth is suspended between two functional crowns, which are anchored onto the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. This creates a “bridge” across your open space, returning both aesthetics and function to that area of your mouth.

Traditional Bridges


Traditional bridges are used when there are sturdy, healthy teeth to support one or two prosthetic teeth between them. The process takes 2 appointments, and is similar to having a crown made. At the first visit the supporting teeth will be prepped and an impression is taken. Two weeks later, the custom made bridge is ready to be permanently bonded into place.

Implant Bridges


Implant supported bridges can replace up to 4 or 5 teeth at once. Each end is supported by a permanent dental implant, which functions like a natural tooth. It allows patients to replace more teeth, or to have a bridge if there are not healthy teeth nearby. Implant therapy involves the surgical placement of implants, a brief healing period, and then the delivery of a permanent restoration.

Which option is right for you? We are happy to discuss your treatment choices so that you can select the best for your individual needs. Call Aurora Dental today.
