Restore Your Smile With Dental Crowns & Bridges at Our Winfield Location in Laredo

At Davenport Dental Group, we know how tough it can be to live with damaged or missing teeth. Dental damage makes you reluctant to share your smile and causes problems with everything from eating to speaking. But you don’t have to let it get you down! We can use beautifully crafted dental crowns and bridges at our Winfield location in Laredo to repair your smile in as little as one appointment.

These restorations will:

  • Last a Long Time – With the proper care, durable crowns and bridges could last decades.
  • Look Great – Replacing your missing teeth and restoring your damaged teeth will make your smile more beautiful.
  • Restore Your Full Oral Function – You’ll be able to chew food without any discomfort and speak more clearly.
  • Protect Your Smile – Replacing a missing tooth will prevent nearby teeth from shifting out of their proper place. Covering a damaged tooth with a crown will protect it from future harm.

There’s No Need for a Temporary With a Same-Day Crown

At many dental offices, you’ll need to wear a temporary crown while you wait up to several weeks for a lab to make your restoration. Davenport Dental Group is different! We use technology called CEREC to craft a custom same-day crown for you while you wait. You walk in with a damaged tooth and walk out with a beautiful crown – in just one appointment.

We use crowns to:

  • Repair severely damaged or decayed teeth
  • Protect teeth after a root canal
  • Cover cosmetic flaws like deep stains or misshapen teeth
  • Replace missing teeth, when attached to dental implants

Replace Missing Teeth With a Dental Bridge

A dental bridge replaces one missing tooth or several adjacent teeth. We offer two types of bridges:

  • Fixed Bridges – This restoration is created by bonding several crowns together. The crowns on the end are placed on your natural teeth on either side of the gap, while the middle crown (or crowns) “bridges” it.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges – Since it is secured with dental implants, an implant-supported bridge means we won’t have to modify healthy teeth. Implants also help preserve your bone structure and oral health.

For dental crowns and bridges at our Winfield location in Laredo, call us at 956-517-2695.

Common Questions About Dental Crowns and Bridges

Are dental crowns permanent?

The longevity of a dental crown can vary widely, depending upon numerous variables including your dental hygiene, your eating habits, and where the crown is situated in your mouth. We utilize some of the most durable materials for our restorations, such as CEREC same-day crowns made of ceramic, so they will last for many years.

How does a dental bridge work?

A bridge fills the void left by one tooth or a number of missing teeth with natural-looking replacement teeth called pontics. You have two choices for keeping the bridge in place: connecting the pontic to dental crowns on your teeth beside the void, or attaching it to dental implants. Implants get rid of the need to place crowns on healthy teeth.

Will my insurance pay for dental crowns?

Every insurance plan is different, so the only way to know is to look at your plan. We can help you determine your benefits. Usually, insurance does pay for at least part of a crown. That’s because crowns are most frequently used to make a required repair to a tooth. If a crown is utilized for a strictly aesthetic purpose, such as hiding a stained tooth, your insurance most likely will not pay for it.
