Your Dental Crown Options
Our office provides several types of dental crowns, so you can restore your smile on your terms!
All-porcelain crowns are the most popular dental crown choice due to their mix of durability and aesthetics. Porcelain looks remarkably similar to natural enamel, and our dentists can perfectly match your crown’s color to the shade of your teeth. Since they are entirely metal-free, they can create an incredibly realistic appearance that other crowns can’t match. Plus, porcelain crowns’ strength allows them to last up to 15 years on average.
Like all-porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are designed to look like a real tooth. While their surface is made of tooth-colored porcelain, PFM crowns have a strong metal base that lets them better protect your natural tooth below against pressure and impacts. This makes them a particularly great choice for back teeth that regularly take on the full force of your bite.
Although their appearance makes them easy to spot, metal crowns can be a valuable option. Metal is much stronger than porcelain, and these crowns are much less likely to crack or chip. With good care, they can last for up to 30 years in excellent shape. Metal crowns are usually reserved for back teeth like molars and premolars, which are harder to see and need the added durability. Most metal crowns can last up to 30 years with good care. Gold dental crowns have even greater longevity, often lasting 50 years to a lifetime with good care.
Dental Bridges: Replacing A Missing Tooth
Complete your smile and restore your missing teeth with a dental bridge!
If you’ve had a tooth extracted, our prosthodontists can replace it with a dental bridge. How does a tooth bridge work? Bridges attach a dental crown to either side of your false tooth or teeth. By placing these crowns on the teeth neighboring your tooth gap, we can beautifully and instantly replace up to for teeth in a row. Bridges are fixed in place like a regular crown, so you don’t
need to worry about your smile sliding or slipping out of place like with a denture. Our talented team has years of experience ensuring your new teeth perfectly fill the gap in your smile—and making them look just as real as your natural teeth. We use high-quality materials that allow your dental bridge to last 10 to 15 years on average. We can also design your bridge to be compatible with dental implants
for even greater long-term stability and dental health. Implant-supported bridges let you replace more missing teeth at a time without losing the solid support a normal bridge is known for. If you have any questions about the dental bridge process, contact us today at (714) 278-4975 and schedule an appointment with our dedicated prosthodontists.

Do You Need a Dental Crown?
Crowns are an incredibly flexible tool in our dentists’ hands, fixing a variety of dental problems and emergencies.
Severe Tooth Decay: While a filling treats small cavities, more extensive tooth decay may instead require a dental crown. Crowns are often needed after a root canal. The tooth will be brittle and vulnerable to cracking or breaking, but a dental crown can give it the reinforcement it needs to stay healthy and whole for decades.
Broken Tooth: Significant fractures and breaks aren’t just painful. Depending on the severity, they also put your tooth’s life and future health at risk. Even major dental damage can be fully repaired with a dental crown while strengthening the tooth against later impacts and injuries.
Dental Bridge: Crowns can also help with replacing missing teeth! Crowns make up two-thirds of a dental bridge. A bridge for a missing tooth is comprised of two dental crowns attached to a false tooth (pontic). By placing the crowns on the natural teeth on either end of a tooth gap, the pontic can perfectly fill in the space between. A single tooth bridge can replace up to four teeth in a row simultaneously.
Dental Implants: Another way crowns can replace a tooth is with a dental implant. The implant itself is a titanium post inserted into the jaw, acting as the artificial tooth’s root. A crown is attached to the implant via an abutment, allowing you to enjoy your old tooth’s appearance and functionality.
How long do crowns last?
Your crown’s longevity depends on both the material used and your own care and dental hygiene. All-porcelain and PFM crowns last an average of 10 to 15 years, though some may last more than 20 with excellent care. Metal crowns typically last up to 30 years. Gold crowns wear down at the same rate as enamel and can stay in great shape for more than 50 years.
How much is a dental crown?
Pricing varies depending on the type of crown you need. All-porcelain crowns are the most expensive due to their unmatched aesthetics. Metal crowns are on the lower end of the scale. Both PFM and gold crowns range between the two. Dental crowns are covered by insurance, though we recommend checking with your provider for your specific coverage. If you have any questions about your dental crown cost, feel free to call us at (714) 278-4975 and schedule a financial consultation.
Do gums grow around a dental crown?
Yes. Once your crown is in place, the gums will quickly close up around it, preventing sensitivity and future tooth decay. However, poor dental health and gum disease can cause the gums to recede and expose the crown’s base as well as the roots. With PFM crowns, this can be seen by a dark rim appearing at the gum line.
How long after a crown is cemented can I eat?
We recommend waiting at least one or two hours after your appointment before eating anything. You should also avoid sticky or hard foods for several hours. The dental cement will need to set during this time, ensuring your tooth crown lasts years rather than months.
Is it painful to have a crown put on your tooth?
Not at all! Your dentist will apply a numbing agent to your tooth and the surrounding areas before starting the crown process. This ensures that you won’t feel anything more than some minor pressure as we work.
What is the difference between implant and bridge?
Besides bridges, dental implants are another great way to replace a missing tooth. Rather than supporting two dental crowns on nearby teeth like a bridge, an implant instead inserts a titanium screw in the jaw to act as your new tooth’s root. A single crown is attached to this screw via an abutment, completing the artificial tooth. Implants last longer, but they are also more expensive than your typical dental bridge cost.
