Dental Crowns Bridges

As the name suggests Dental crowns bridges, a crown is a cap or covering for a tooth. It is used when your tooth is discolored, cracked or broken, heavily filled or if fillings have been lost.

There are many different types of dental crowns available at beach smile dental in Redondo Beach. Dr. Ursula Parducho DDS will advise the best option depending on the location of the crown. They may recommend a ceramic, resin or sometimes even gold crowns.

Our dentists use their expertise and modern technology to match the new Dental Crowns Bridges to the shape of your existing teeth and their color.

our Beach Smile Dentist in Redondo Beach offer Same Day Crowns using CAD/CAM technology to design, produce and insert ceramic restorations.

When would I need a Dental Crowns Bridges ?

Cover discolored or worn teeth
If you feel that your teeth are becoming more transparent or becoming darker in color, they may be wearing down. Your dentist will discuss the reasons behind this as it is important that they are addressed first. If your dentist recommends a crown restoration, then this crown will be fabricated to resemble the natural shape and strength of your existing tooth through the use of a ceramic material.
Replacement of a large filling
If your teeth are heavily filled, they may be at risk of fractures or de-bonding of fillings. Frequent replacement of fillings can lead to loss of precious tooth structure. Repeated dental treatment on the same tooth may lead to deepening of the filling and subsequent nerve inflammation. To avoid these complications, Dr. Parducho may recommend that a crown is constructed before the filling becomes too large and remaining tooth structure is too short to support a crown.
To stop a tooth from further cracking or fracturing
If your tooth is showing fine lines and cracks or you occasionally feel sensitivity when biting into sticky or hard foods, your tooth may have a deep crack or may be at risk of complete fracture. This is common for heavily filled teeth, especially where an amalgam filling is in place. Your dentist may recommend a crown to restore the tooth and protect its cusps from splitting apart and may suggest replacing any amalgam with a ceramic restoration.
To anchor a bridge replacing a missing tooth
If a tooth is missing or lost, your dentist will discuss the options for tooth replacement. This may involve the placement of an implant or tooth supported bridge. If two or more teeth directly adjacent to the lost or missing tooth are at risk of fracture or are discolored and need crowns, a bridge may be a good option to replace the missing tooth. When the bridge is produced, a porcelain tooth (pontic) is fused to the two or more crowns on either side and once the crowns are fitted onto the adjoining teeth, the porcelain pontic appears to be emerging out of the gum. A bridge may be a suitable course of treatment for you if you are unable to have an implant due to issues with your overall health or dental health.
After root canal treatment
Root canal filled teeth are prone to fractures, due to the nature of root canal treatment and hollowing out of the tooth in the process. Dentists highly recommend crowning most root canal filled teeth to protect them from fractures and further bacterial infections.
Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a ceramic structure, spanning the gap left by a missing or extracted tooth. A ceramic tooth (pontic) is fused between two or more porcelain crowns on either side of the missing tooth that serve as anchors.

The anchor teeth are shaped to accommodate the crowns and then a bridge is bonded securely over these teeth.

At Beach Smile Dental in Redondo Beach we will take an impression or a digital scan of your mouth and then using technology and training will design a ceramic tooth to insert between the two existing crowned teeth.

What types of dental bridges are available?2017-02-17T17:33:36+00:00

There are several types, and which one we recommend depends on where it will go in your mouth, your bite and also the aesthetic and functional considerations.

A bridge will keep teeth from drifting into the space created by a missing tooth, helping preserve normal function and a normal bite for the jaw joint. In the most common type of bridge, crowns are applied to the two teeth on either side of a gap (where teeth have been removed). This involves joining three crowns, including a crown to fill the gap.

What is a dental bridge?2017-02-17T17:57:50+00:00

Bridges are the traditional way of replacing missing teeth. A dental bridge is a false tooth, fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place are attached to teeth on each side of the false tooth.

Why do I need a crown?2017-02-17T17:58:05+00:00

Dental crowns improve the structure of the tooth. As time goes by, it’s not unusual to find our teeth are no longer structurally sound. Things like lost fillings, decay, chipping and cracking of the enamel can all lead to large-scale problems in a tooth’s surface. If the whole surface of the tooth is problematic but the root system is intact, a crown might be the ideal solution.

What is dental crowns?2017-02-17T17:58:19+00:00

Crowns are coverings for the entire visible part of the tooth. They are used when teeth are broken; old and large fillings are lost; teeth are badly decayed or severely discolored. They improve the appearance of your natural teeth and can brighten your smile. National Dental Care offers both porcelain and gold materials, taking into consideration where in your mouth the crown is to be placed.

Best dentist and dental office I’ve ever been to. I have a brain injury from having too many concussions as a boxer and college baseball pitcher. It is very difficult as well as terribly frustrating to be unable to concentrate or be organized. Both Dr. P. and her staff help me with a lot of things that are up, and above what their job duties would entail. I’m extremely self conscious because I get confused at times and the Dr. and her staff are patient and let me relax a little with them. In a nutshell, not only is Dr. P. the smartest and skilled dentist I’ve ever seen, but the whole office staff have been kind, which means a great deal to me. Dr. Richard Hughesread more

I am very disappointed with this dental office. This office is inadequate. They will deceive you. I will not recommend them under any circumstances. I came into their office today first, Jessy their very unprofessional manager did not let me choose the filling that was priority. Jessy will lie to you regarding treatment that you obviously need and say that you don’t, completely unacceptable. Dr. Parducho then proceeds to fill my wisdom tooth that is set to be extracted and was not in the treatment plan to be filled. This action should never happen. They also tried to take X-ray’s every time I came in this shows carelessness to the patient’s health with the excessive use of radiation. This dental office is clearly corrupt. Speaking to dentist after procedure was denied for guilty reasons. I then asked for my treatment plan to be printed and given to me Jessy refused to do so. I being an honest professional in the dental field myself providing a treatment plan to our patients is a must. The dentist and all staff acted below the applicable standard of care.read more

Zero stars for the worst dental experience of my life. Jessy is probably the most disrespectful degrading dental assistant I've ever had to deal with. She made me wait for 1.5 hours in the lobby. I came on time to my appointment and two other people came after me, yet they were seen before me! When I asked why and it obviously seemed like she had some preference to those customers...and her reasoning was oh they were in pain...BS. Dr. Parducho is a great dentist yet it's unfortunate her front desk staff (the first person you contact at a dental office and sets the tone) is unprofessional and condescending. It's unfortunate I was looking forward to coming here because a coworker recommended them. Do yourself a favor and find a dental office that will respect you and make you feel good after leaving the office.read more

The worst dental appointment ever. I was warned by another person while waiting in the lobby. They are very unprofessional and had none of my paperwork together so I waited for almost an hour before they took me. I scheduled an appointment for cleaning and all the dentist did was take x-rays and examine my teeth. Don't waste your time.read more

Miss Jessy & Dr. Parducho! 5 out of 5 Stars!!!! The fear from my dentistry past had caused me to neglect my dental health for too many years. You & Dr. P provided THE MOST comforting care before, during and after all the work that needed done. I couldn't be more grateful for your kindness, compassion, and work to get my mouth in its best health. And now- I'm happy to say, you've both given me the confidence & care to keep these teeth & gums a top priority! Thank You for everythingread more

Just moved to town and looking for a good dentist for my daughter. Based on reviews I tried them. Both times they made an appointment and then were 30 minutes late. The second time they made an appointment for procedure that wasn’t covered by my insurance (and I have great insurance - this never happened at my old dentist) and then didn’t tell me until they handed me the bill. Needless to say there will not be a third time with them.read more

Best dentist... Really friendly, modern office, pleasant atmosphere, excellent staff. Dr Parducho diagnosed my grinding on the first visit!! I was with my previous dentist for years and he never told me about it. After Dr parducho had me fitted for a bite guard and since then I noticed how well rested I feel waking up with less tension. I found a great dentist that truly cares about her patients and has a great sense of empathy.read more
