Crowns and Bridges

At Little Family Dentistry, in Bayonne, NJ, we understand the importance of providing our patients with severe dental issues with the treatments that offer a complete restoration to teeth to make them appear natural.

What Are the Benefits of Crowns/Bridges?

Crowns are a positive resolution for most dental problems caused by accidents, disease and decay. Major dental problems such as missing teeth, misshapen or broken teeth or chewing problems are corrected with a crown/bridge. Having a crown placed on the tooth relieves pain and allows the patient full function of their teeth. In front teeth, old fillings can stain or chip which can weaken the tooth. Porcelain crowns are more suitable to correct this problem better than porcelain veneers.

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are preferred for their esthetic value. The first step is to schedule an appointment for a consultation with our office in Bayonne, NJ to discuss whether a crown is your best option. Porcelain crowns just replace the outside part of a tooth down to the gum level to create a more natural appearance. The treatment requires our office to schedule you for at least two visits. On the first visit, the dentist will remove any decay, then shape the tooth and place a temporary crown on the tooth. The final crown is made in our professional lab, fitted and adjusted at your next appointment. Once the doctor is satisfied with the fit, the crown is cemented into place and polished to match the rest of your smile.


Bridges replace multiple teeth that are missing. They can be either permanently attached or removable. A fixed bridge is bonded to the teeth. Removable bridges attach to other teeth by a metal hook. Having good dental health is the most important reason for wearing a bridge, in addition to appearance and functionality. The loss of your teeth can result in your cheeks sinking, giving the appearance of being older than you are. Bridges support your lips and cheeks. The added risk of gum disease is another side effect of missing teeth and can be significantly decreased by wearing a bridge. The actual treatment takes two or three appointments to complete. At the first appointment to Little Family Dentistry, the doctor begins the process by preparing the teeth on both sides of the gap by removing part of the enamel and dentin. Because the bridge must be made to precisely to correct a bite and match the surrounding teeth, an impression is sent to our lab where using the specifications provided by the doctor, the bridge is created. The following visits will be used to fit, shape and check for comfort the bridge.

Our Happy Patients

"Highly Recommend Dr. Little - When Dr. Aurori retired, (He was my dentist since the early 90s) I figured it was time to find a dentist closer to home. I wasn't able to find a practice to trust, and I figured I would try Dr. Little. I am very happy that I did. Dr. Little and her staff have made visiting the office a warm and vibrant experience. I do not mind having to travel an hour to see her. It's well worth it. She is knowledgeable, gentle, and clearly, loves what she does. I Highly recommend her."
