Do You Need a Crown or a Bridge?

Tooth decay remains one of the most prevalent childhood diseases in the United States. According to the CDC, approximately 20% of kids between ages 5 and 11 and nearly one-third of adults under age 45 possess at least one untreated decayed tooth. Saeed Mokhayeri, DDS, and Hengameh Safarcherati, DDS at Arya Dental, in Fullerton, California, treat several people in need of dental bridges or crowns.

The crowning touch

Created in a range of materials, from porcelain to ceramic, crowns cover teeth suffering from an abundance of decay, chips, or cracks. Our team prefers all-porcelain or all-ceramic crowns, which blend in best with your natural teeth. Metal may be visible at the gum line with crowns made from a combination of porcelain and metal. All-metal caps look far less aesthetically pleasing, as well. All-porcelain or all-ceramic crowns are also a good choice for front teeth or people with metal allergies.

Crowns can cosmetically improve the look of crooked or misshapen teeth. Our team also uses crowns to cover implants or enhance a tooth’s structure following a root canal. 

Build a bridge to better health

Our team creates dental bridges for both children and adults. These use one or more false teeth, made from synthetic materials, to fill in the space left by missing teeth. We fuse these new teeth between your natural ones or dental implants to protect normal teeth from shifting, help you chew normally, and keep you smiling.

Choose from a variety of styles, including:
