Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges are restorative procedures used to fix damaged or missing teeth. They help improve your smile, restore speech and chewing capabilities, and boost your self-confidence. A crown is ideal when the tooth structure is fractured or damaged, while a bridge is a great tooth replacement option when one or more teeth are missing. These solutions are strong and durable, a factor that makes them a preferred choice for many compared to removable dentures.

We accept most insurance plans. We also accept payment from most PPO and indemnity plans. Please call us to make an appointment and we will answer any questions you may have.

What Is a Dental Crown Procedure?

Dental crowns, or dental caps, are a type of non-removable tooth restoration used when teeth are cracked, worn down, or when a cavity threatens the tooth’s health. The procedure can also be used for cosmetic reasons to cover up a tooth filling.

There are different types of crowns for different kinds of teeth. A temporary dental crown is a quick fix that works until a permanent one can be manufactured. When it comes to the material, the options available are stainless steel, metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), all-ceramic or all-porcelain, and zirconia. The choice of material comes down to several factors, including the location of its tooth, its function, how much natural tooth is available, and the position of your gum tissue.

Applying a dental cap may involve either a same-day or multi-day procedure. Your dentist will examine the tooth to determine how best to cement the crown to the tooth structure.

What Is a Dental Bridge Procedure?

A dental bridge is an artificial tooth used to fill a space or gap left behind as a result of a missing tooth or teeth. This solution helps to restore the appearance and function of your teeth.

There are different types of bridges meant to address a variety of needs. These are:

● Traditional
● Cantilever
● Maryland
● Implant support bridges

The prosthetics are made from different materials such as gold and PFM, but will mostly be made from porcelain to blend in with your natural teeth. Your dentist may install a temporary bridge to protect your gums and teeth before receiving a permanent one.

Once your dentist has ascertained that a dental bridge is the ideal tooth replacement solution, they will shape your teeth to allow room for a crown to be placed over them. Impressions of your teeth are then made, and a temporary bridge is fixed. A permanent bridge will then be placed during your second visit to the dentist. Aftercare and follow up will also be necessary after the restoration of missing teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Full dental implants are replacements for both the missing tooth and the missing root. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants are inserted into the gum, replacing both the root and the tooth.

Dental implants can be categorized as restorative dentistry surgery, as they contribute to your mouth’s health.

The dental implant begins with inserting a titanium screw into the jaw. This stimulates the jaw’s bone growth and reduces the “thinning” that can happen when teeth are missing. Once this has healed, the “cap” tooth is fitted into place, and can often be colored to match the surrounding teeth.

With dental implants, you can bite, speak, and chew regularly. Plus, the implant keeps other teeth from shifting in the mouth and maintains oral health. At Dental Beauty, we offer our patients affordable dental implants so they can get the smile they deserve at a cost that aligns with their budget!

Types of Dental Implants

There are a few types of dental implants, and your Bucks County dentist can help you determine which one is best for your mouth. Also, some patients may need to have bone grafting performed on the jaw to support the implant. This can include bone augmentation or a sinus lift, adding bone below the sinus where it’s deteriorated due to missing back teeth on the upper part of the jaw.

  • Subperiosteal dental implants are placed under the gum, and either on or above the jawbone. This type of implant is best for people who don’t have a healthy enough jawbone and don’t want to or cannot undergo bone augmentation procedures to rebuild it.
  • Endosteal dental implants are placed directly in the jawbone. These use the titanium screw implant and are the most common type of implant.

FAQs About Dental Implants

Here are some common questions we hear about dental implants:

Does dental insurance cover implants?

Many dental insurance companies consider implants to be a cosmetic dentistry procedure, and therefore may not provide coverage. We can work with your insurance to help determine if this is a medically necessary procedure. If you’re considering dental implants, you may wish to look for a new dental policy that does cover the procedure before booking the appointment.

Does PA Medicaid cover dental implants?

Traditional Medicaid, which is Medicaid Part A and Medicaid Part B, does not cover dental implants. However, some supplemental Medicaid insurance plans, called Medicare Advantage Plans, may cover dental implants. Private insurance companies provide these plans, and each plan varies on coverage.

How much do dental implants cost in PA?

Depending on the number of implants you need and whether you need bone grafting procedures, the costs can vary widely. Consult one of our dentists for more information regarding an accurate assessment.
