If you live in Pompano Beach, FL call (954) 395-2419 to schedule your appointment so that you can learn more about dental crowns and dental bridges.
A dental crown is an oral prosthetic which fully encapsulates the tooth or dental implant down to the gumline level. Both dental crowns & bridges are extremely effective as a cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatment and can be used to treat:
- Missing teeth extracted to preserve oral health
- Broken teeth due to trauma
- Structurally compromised teeth
- Teeth with large portions of decay
- Patients who have had root canal therapy or endodontic therapy
- During the initial dental crown consultation, Dr. Berger will perform an examination to outline a treatment plan specifically for you.
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth, as well as teeth that need to be extracted because they cannot be salvaged through root canal therapy. Bridges are also used to straighten teeth and close unsightly spaces. Traditional fixed bridges are comprised of an artificial tooth or teeth supported on either side by a porcelain crown or a porcelain fused to high noble metal crown. These crowns are then affixed to the natural teeth adjacent to the space where teeth are missing so that the artificial tooth or teeth neatly fill this space.
Because Dr. Berger uses her finely honed aesthetic sensibilities to customize tooth restorations, you can rest assured that your new teeth will be entirely natural looking, giving you a smile that is as beautiful as it is healthy. To ensure the most secure and realistic results possible, please inquire about how crowns and bridges can be supported by dental implants.
With proper care, a dental crown or bridge can last for years. Care for your dental crown the same way you would your natural teeth with periodic checkups and cleanings. If you would like to learn more on dental crowns & bridges and how they can restore your smile, please contact Dr. Berger Pompano Beach, FL Dentistry today.

After the Procedure
When getting dental Restoratives, your teeth will be somewhat sensitive after they have been prepared. This is why you need to wear a temporary crown while waiting for a permanent one to be created. We use sedation dentistry to ensure that you will not experience any discomfort during the procedure and after the fact you simply need to take some oral pain medication for a couple of days until you feel better.
The benefit of wearing a crown is that it surrounds and protects the tooth. This means that regardless of how damaged the tooth was, you can eat your favorite foods without fear of discomfort. A crown can restore the functionality of your mouth by making it easy to eat, drink and speak like normal. This is ideal for people that are suffering from severely sensitive teeth, have a cracked or chipped tooth or have undergone a root canal. Similarly, a bridge makes it possible to eat and speak like normal without worrying about your new tooth becoming loose or falling out. They are both ideal for people that have active lifestyles and don’t want to be constrained by their teeth. To find out if the procedure is right for you, call 954-395-2419 to schedule an appointment with us and discuss your options. At South Florida Smile Spa, Nicole M. Berger, DDS , we make it easier for patients throughout Pompano Beach to have a beautiful and functional smile.
