Crowns and Bridges in

We know that it can be a very uncomfortable experience when a tooth is lost or severely damaged. Not only can it make it difficult to chew, but it can also ruin the look of a smile. That’s why at Salem Creek Family Dental, we provide only high-quality crowns and bridges to restore lost and damaged teeth.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Every dental crown and bridge from our practice is custom-made. During your first visit, we will take impressions of the teeth. We will then send these to a dental laboratory so that a customized crown or bridge can be constructed. Once the restoration is ready, the patient will return for a follow-up visit to have it applied. The custom-made nature of dental crowns and bridges allows them to provide the best possible results.

Salem Creek Family Dental offers options for crowns and bridges built from porcelain and zirconia. Both appear natural and offer their own set of advantages. Our experts are happy to help a patient determine the perfect type of restoration for their needs.


A dental crown consists of a tooth-shaped appliance that is installed at the site of a lost or damaged tooth. If the structure is restoring an existing tooth, it will “cap” the structure and prevent any further damage. Alternatively, a crown can be installed on top of a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. Crowns are also used in dental bridges to provide support for the rest of the structure. When a crown is used with a bridge, it is often referred to as an “abutment.” The crowns provided by our practice are designed to appear natural, while also providing exceptional performance.


Bridges are used when a patient is missing multiple adjacent teeth. These restorations consist of multiple parts that all work together to provide the best possible result for the patient. In the middle of a dental bridge is one or more replacement teeth that “bridge” the gap that was created when the original teeth were lost. These replacement teeth are supported by two dental crowns at either end of the gap. The crowns will provide strong and steady support for the rest of the bridge, ensuring that it remains secure and in place. Each component of a bridge is custom-made so that the restoration appears as natural as possible.

I had the BEST experience at Salem Creek Family Dental! I had an extremely painful toothache and was able to get in right away and Dr. Costello was AMAZING and so was her assistant Miranda!! They helped make the experience so relaxing it was almost enjoyable! And believe me coming from someone with severe "dentist anxiety" that is saying a lot! I had no pain at all even after the procedure! Dr Costello even called the next day to check on how things were going! I recommend this dentist office to everyone!

Dr. Costello really helped me out when I needed a mouth guard for grinding my teeth. She took the time to work with my crazy schedule and went the extra mile to let me know she was invested in my needs! Her office was so clean and welcoming, and both she and her staff are beyond kind. Thanks, Dr. Costello!
