Dental Crowns and Bridges
At Rancho Peñasquitos Dental Center, we believe everyone deserves the many benefits of a complete set of healthy teeth. Of course, life doesn't always respect our plans, and at some point, you may break a tooth or suffer tooth loss. If and when you do, Dr. Pavneet Sondhi and her skilled dental team can help restore your smile with beautiful, lifelike crowns and bridgework.
We Offer Solutions for Broken and Missing Teeth
Fortunately, modern dentistry offers effective, time-tested solutions to restore your broken, decayed, or missing teeth:
Dental Crowns Restore Function and Aesthetics
A dental crown—also referred to as a cap or tooth cap—is a tooth-shaped dental restoration that extends the lifespan of a decayed, damaged, or weakened tooth.
Dental Bridges Replace Missing Teeth
If you are missing one or more teeth in the same area of your mouth, a crown and bridge restoration is a solution that restores your smile and dental bite.
Our porcelain and zirconia crowns and bridgework are strong and durable, provide stability, restore function, and improve your smile's aesthetics.

Why We Recommend Dental Crowns
We commonly recommend dental crowns for the following reasons:
- Protect and restore the structure of a broken or badly decayed tooth
- Strengthen a tooth weakened by a large filling or root canal
- Improve the appearance of oddly-shaped teeth
- Restore function and appearance to a dental implant
Thanks to advances in modern restorative dentistry, Dr. Sondhi ensures that your crowns and bridges look completely natural and you are left with a radiant, healthy smile.
What Crown & Bridgework Does for Your Smile
When your teeth are in good condition, they all work together to help you chew and speak properly. With the loss of even a single tooth, your jaw structure begins to change, and your dental bite becomes unstable.
In many cases, Dr. Sondhi may recommend placing a dental bridge secured by crowns. This restoration replaces your missing teeth and prevents neighboring teeth from drifting.
Placing crown and bridgework involves securing crowns to teeth next to the open space and connecting them to one or more prosthetic teeth (pontics) that sit in the gap.
Dr. Sondhi carefully prepares the teeth on each side that border the gap and caps them with custom dental crowns that hold bridge in place. Since we use only the highest quality materials, our crowns and bridges are durable and aesthetic.
