Dental Crown & Bridge



Revive Your Smile With Dental Crowns & Bridges in Colorado Springs

Dental crowns and bridges in Colorado Springs are the most versatile restorations our patients can receive. They can be used to fix nearly anything that’s gone wrong with your smile, including missing teeth. A dental crown can:

  • Repair cavities that are too large for filling
  • Fix a broken or cracked tooth
  • Hide cosmetic flaws such as misshapen or deeply stained teeth
  • Replace a missing tooth when used with a dental implant or as part of a dental bridge

To see if a crown or bridge can solve your dental problems, call us today at 719-632-3591. As with all our dental restorations, we are committed to using the most biocompatible materials possible for our crowns and bridges.

Smile Without Embarrassment With These Restorations

We use metal-free crowns and bridges in many different ways to restore your smile’s appearance and functionality:

  • Single Crown A porcelain crown will repair and strengthen a tooth that has been damaged by a crack, break, or severe decay
  • Implant Crown We can attach a crown to a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. It will blend in easily with the rest of your smile and give you a bite nearly as strong as what you had before
  • Fixed Bridge These sturdy restorations replace one or more missing teeth to fill gaps in your smile. To keep a bridge in place, we’ll anchor it to surrounding teeth using dental crowns
  • Implant-Supported Bridge To avoid altering healthy teeth, we can attach your bridge to dental implants

In some cases, Dr. Craig Sommer may instead use partial crowns called inlays or onlays to repair your dental damage. An inlay covers the entire top surface of your tooth, while an onlay extends onto the sides of your tooth. No matter which dental restoration is used, Dr. Sommer will use digital scanning technology if impressions of your teeth are needed. This method is less messy and more comfortable than traditional dental impressions.

Commonly Asked Questions


What is a dental bridge?

If you are missing teeth, we can help you restore your smile with a dental bridge. As the name implies, this is a restorative dentistry solution that actually bridges the gaps between your teeth and fills in the slots where teeth are missing. We offer many options for replacing missing teeth in a holistic manner.

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are an extremely versatile restorative dentistry solution. In fact, dental crowns can be used by Dr. Sommer to fix just about anything that’s gone awry with your smile, including cracked or broken teeth. When used with implants, crowns can replace missing teeth. They can also hide annoying cosmetic flaws or smile imperfections.

How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

The longevity of crowns and bridges depends on several factors, including where they are located in your mouth, the materials used for the restorations, and how well you care for your teeth. We use high-quality, biocompatible materials that should last at least a decade, with proper care. In some cases, your restoration can last many years longer than that.

How many teeth can a bridge replace?

The number of teeth that can be replaced by a bridge is dependent on several factors, including the number and condition of your remaining teeth. While it can be used to replace a single tooth, a bridge more commonly fills a gap left by two or more teeth. A conventional restoration is supported by crowns attached to the teeth that surround the space you want to fill. The more missing teeth you have, the more crowns will be needed for support. For added strength and to avoid altering healthy teeth for crowns, we can anchor a bridge to dental implants instead.
