Crowns and bridges

Crowns and bridges are restorative treatments to restore one or more damaged, weakened or missing teeth. They are intended as durable replacements for teeth. Crowns and bridges approximate the original shape and function as much as possible.

What is a crown or bridge?

A crown or bridge is a, outside the mouth, custom-made restoration to restore the tooth. The term crown refers to a single tooth, as opposed to a bridge, which involves several teeth. It is designed to recreate the natural design and colour of the original tooth, preserving the aesthetic aspect. Crown and bridge treatments are performed by dentists in collaboration with a dental technician. Durable materials are used to ensure long-term results.

Reasons for manufacturing

There are several reasons why a dentist may recommend this treatment. These are the most common reasons.


A crown can be used to protect a tooth that has been severely weakened by tooth decay, fractures or dental procedures, such as root canal treatment. A crown/bridge protects and strengthens a weakened tooth, preventing further damage and fracture.


A crown and/or bridge can be placed on a chipped tooth or a tooth affected by wear and tear. It helps restore the tooth to its original shape, strength and functionality.


Crowns and/or bridges can be used to restore nature. Thus, damaged and discoloured teeth can be restored. Want to know more about aesthetic treatments at dentist Amsterdam-Zuid? Find out all about our aesthetic treatments.

Different types of materials

Various materials are available for fabricating crown and bridgework. Each material has its own unique properties and advantages. Your dentist will advise you on which material is best in your specific situation.

The process

Fabricating a crown or bridge at Dentist Amsterdam-Zuid usually requires several appointments. During the first appointment, the affected tissue is removed. A protective layer is applied to your tooth and a digital scan/print is taken. This is sent to the dental laboratory to have the workpiece customised. You will go home with a temporary crown. During the second appointment, the crown/bridge is carefully fitted and adjusted if necessary, after which it is permanently fixed using dental cement.

Aftercare and maintenance

To ensure durability, regular aftercare and maintenance is essential. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene by regular brushing and interdental cleaning. It is also important to schedule periodic checkups to monitor the condition of the crown/bridge and treat any problems early.

Cost of treatment

Fabricating a crown and/or bridge at Dentist Amsterdam-Zuid can vary in cost, depending on several factors. There are a few key points regarding the cost of crown treatment: choice of materials, complexity of treatment and insurance. The dentist will prepare a budget for you.
