Crowns and Bridges

Make your smile perfect with our dental crowns in Dental Solutions treatments by the hand of our specialists

BruxZir crowns and bridges are particularly beneficial for patients who suffer from bruxism or teeth grinding. Their robust structural design makes them more resistant to the damage caused by teeth grinding.

Crowns and Bridges

The Benefits of Bridges,

  • Made from durable, solid zirconia 100 % pure monolithic
  • Chip-resistant structure is ideal for patients who experience bruxism
  • Glazed to a smooth surface, which reduces the accumulation of plaque
  • Ideal for patients who have limited space in their mouths for porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations.

Dental Solutions, we provide restorations that are both beautiful and durable. If you have broken natural teeth or need to replace your previous porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations.


Ceramic Crowns

Types of Ceramic Crowns:

All-Ceramic Crown

This type of cosmetic crown is made purely from ceramic and no other material. The defining feature of this crown is that it’s made from a translucent material that is attractive to look at and blends in well with the rest of your teeth.


A zirconia crown is a crystal silicate crown used to enhance the appearance of a discolored or disfigured tooth. It is known for its durability, comfort, and long-lasting properties.


This crystal silicate crown type is widely regarded as the closest match to your natural teeth. It is strong, durable, and less prone to cracking or fracturing compared to zirconia crowns. Furthermore, it carries a lower risk of chipping, making it a favorable choice for addressing issues such as damaged, stained, or low-quality teeth

Metal Ceramic Crown

This type of crown is often fitted onto back teeth and is strong and durable. It isn’t as attractive as other types of crowns but it’s a less expensive option. The Metal Ceramic Crown Treatment


The dental crown procedure typically involves the following steps:
  1. Tooth Preparation: The dentist will prepare the tooth to ensure that the crown will fit properly.
  2. Impression: An impression of your teeth is taken and sent to a dental laboratory where the new crown will be crafted. This process usually takes two to three days, during which you may have a temporary crown placed.
  3. Temporary Crown: While waiting for the permanent crown, a temporary crown is placed to protect the prepared tooth.
  4. Fitting the New Crown: Once the new crown is ready, the dentist etches it to ensure it adheres to the tooth properly.
  5. Placement: Once you and your dentist are satisfied with the fitting, the permanent crown is firmly fixed in place using dental cement.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening can be performed on one or more teeth, most commonly as preparation for a dental crown. A dental crown is a cap that is placed on a broken or decayed tooth in order to restore function and appearance. A crown may also be necessary for completing a more extensive restoration such as a root canal, implant, or dental bridge. Crown lengthening can also be performed as a cosmetic procedure to help you achieve your desired smile by treating what is commonly referred to as a “gummy smile” – excessive gum tissue surrounding the front teeth.

Crown lengthening is typically a straightforward procedure that can be completed in a single session under local anesthesia. If you require a crown lengthening procedure, consult with your dentist at South Broward Dentistry and Prosthodontics to discuss your treatment options.


Empress Esthetic Crown

Empress Esthetic crowns are composed of a glass-ceramic material that is not only extremely strong and durable, but aesthetically exceptional as well. The advantage of using Empress Esthetic is that the crown not only functions like a real tooth but also has a natural appearance. The ceramics used in the crown offer an accurate fit and true-to-nature look, leaving you with a healthy, beautiful, restored smile.

Traditional Crowns

There are different types of traditional crowns:


These are used for restoring front teeth and are popular in this area for their ability to blend with your natural tooth color. The crown is made of a porcelain-based material.

Porcelain-fused to metal

This crown provides a stronger bond than regular porcelain because it is connected to a metal structure. It’s also extremely durable.

Gold alloys

This crown is a mix of gold, copper and other metals. In addition to providing a strong bond to the tooth, it doesn’t fracture or wear away the tooth itself.

Base metal alloys

This crown is made up of non-noble metals that are highly resistant to corrosion and make for a very strong crown. It also requires the least amount of healthy tooth to be removed prior to fitting

To make and place a traditional crown typically takes two separate appointments:
  •  The first appointment involves preparing (shaping) the tooth, taking an impression, and placing the temporary crown. The time needed to perform these steps can range from 30 minutes to an hour.
  • During the time period between the two appointments, a dental laboratory will fabricate the crown. Two weeks or so are usually allotted for this process.
  • When the patient returns for their second visit, the dentist will cement the finished crown into place. This step can usually be completed in about 20 minutes or so.

Dental Bridges

A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (these anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth) and a false tooth or teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Bridges can

  • Restoring your smile
  • Restoring the ability to chew and speak properly
  • Maintaining the natural shape of your face
  • Properly distributing biting forces by replacing missing teeth
  • Preventing remaining teeth from shifting out of position

The process of getting a dental bridge typically involves multiple visits:

First Visit: During the initial visit, the abutment teeth are prepared to receive the crown. This preparation involves recontouring these teeth by removing a portion of enamel to create enough space for the crown. Impressions of your teeth are then taken, which will serve as a model for the bridge, pontic, and crowns to be fabricated by a dental laboratory. In the meantime, your dentist will provide a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the permanent bridge is being made.

Second Visit: At the second visit, the temporary bridge is removed, and the new permanent bridge is checked and adjusted as needed to ensure a proper fit. Additional visits may be necessary to assess the fit of the metal framework and your bite. The number of visits required can vary depending on the individual case.
