Dental Crowns & Bridges
Made Just For You
Because every smile is different, restorations like bridges and crowns are custom made for every patient.
Our dentists take intraoral photographs and precise impressions of the treatment site to determine the exact specifications needed for the restoration to fit naturally and function properly.

Why Restorations Are Necessary
Dental restorations are necessary for protecting and re-establishing proper oral function after injury or decay. These restorations can restore the look and function of a damaged tooth, and protect it from further deterioration. Unlike other mineralized structures, a tooth cannot regenerate tissue to heal itself if cracked or chipped. While a broken bone may heal over time, a chipped tooth will not.
Despite teeth being the hardest structure in the human body, once a tooth is damaged it will only continue to deteriorate. As the enamel wears away or is exposed through a break or crack, the innermost structures become exposed to oral debris and bacteria.
Unfortunately, when the root of a tooth is exposed, it can become necessary to intervene with root canal therapy. A root canal can stop the advancement of a painful infection or abscess. If a tooth is beyond what a root canal can salvage, the tooth may need to be extracted and tooth replacement options will become necessary.
If treated in time, a diseased or damaged tooth can be easily saved with a root canal and crown treatment.
Materials Used to Make Restorations
There are a number of materials available from which to fabricate crowns and bridges. Metals, such as silver or gold, and even porcelain are commonly used to create crowns. Budget-conscious patients may opt to use metals for restorations at the back of the mouth and choose porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal for crowns at the front of the mouth. These combination crowns are aesthetically pleasing and durable.
We want to help our patients get back to their best oral health after a dental injury or decay. We’re proud to offer high quality, custom appliances like dental crowns and bridges. With the help of these restorations, our patients will be smiling again in no time.
Robin my hygienist was great, she kept me informed while working with my teeth. She also was soft on my gums and made sure it was a great experience. Dr. Patel explained in detail what was needed and what was not. He was very professional and told me the risks of a tooth that I know needs a crown. Other fillings he stated looked fine and pointed it out with actual photos that were in color and blown up for me to easily see.
I truly thought this experience was a five star rating! Thank you for everything. In and out in hour and 5 min and that’s because I was engaged and talking to. If I would have talked less it could of have been done in about 45 min.

Nice about working us in for a toothache. Reasonable but safety precautions in place. Professional but kindness shown for our unique situation. Addition: My son had 4 fillings. It was a good experience for him. The estimate of cost was accurate. Also, the doctor worked quickly which is favorable for less jaw pain. I highly recommend Dental Depot, Dr. Patel!Karen Q.7/02/2020
When walking in there are strict guidelines due to Covid. You will be greeted at the front door, your temperature will be checked, and seated 6 feet apart. When taken to your room, you are required to use mouthwash and wash hands. After you are settled in your chair you can remove mask. Dr Talbot and Alexa work very hard in trying to provide top notch service. I barely feel the numbing needles. The procedure went great. Would trust them with my kids.julia l.6/30/2020
This was my first time at the Dental Depot. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted by friendly staff. My hygienist, Nicole, put me at ease from the moment I arrived and explained the process as she went along. She is wonderful!
I was then greeted by Dr. Patel. He was very courteous and also made me feel at ease. He took the time to answer all of my questions.
I highly recommend anyone coming here. If you have anxiety when you go to the dentist, like I do, it will disappear once you are going through the process.Lamar J.6/15/2020
