Importance of Crowns and Bridges

Tooth restorations such as dental crowns and bridges in Pasadena, CA, fix broken or damaged teeth. Your dentist, Dr. Jerry Johnson, can correct your dental issues with crowns and bridges.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth restorations that cover and strengthen your natural teeth. They are crafted using impressions of your teeth so they are the perfect fit. Getting dental crowns to support your teeth after damage means that your natural teeth are still salvageable. You must have sufficient tooth structure to support dental crowns.

If you have dental problems such as tooth decay, you'll need treatment first before proceeding with a dental restoration. A root canal treatment removes the damaged tooth pulp. A dental crown after your root canal treatment strengthens your tooth to prevent more damage.

Dental crowns are also a great restoration for dental issues such as:

  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Stained teeth

Dental Bridges

If your teeth have extensive damage requiring a tooth extraction, your dentist can offer you dental bridges. Dental bridges are false teeth that are supported by your natural teeth to fill the gap in your smile. Dental bridges have several benefits such as:

  • Completing your smile
  • Supporting your facial structure
  • Preventing tooth migration
  • Restoring chewing ability
  • Restoring proper speech

Dental Restoration Procedure

Depending on the degree of damage to your teeth, your dentist will recommend a dental restoration to improve your smile. This begins with a dental examination where your dentist determines the degree of damage and the appropriate dental restoration. Your dentist may offer you a local anesthetic so that you feel more comfortable during your procedure.

Your dentist will shave some of the enamel off your natural teeth to prepare them for your new dental crowns or bridges in Pasadena, CA. Your tooth impressions used in making your dental crowns and bridges ensure that your new teeth restorations look as natural as possible. After installing your tooth restoration, your dentist ensures that it's a perfect fit.

Restoring your damaged teeth with dental crowns and bridges in Pasadena, CA, is possible. Call your dentist, Dr. Johnson, at (626) 798-7896 to schedule a consultation today.

Dr. Jerry Johnson is amazing!   Love him. I have delta dental PPO and switched to him when I moved to the area. Highly recommend!

I'm so glad that I found this dentist! He and his staff are the nicest, kindest, and professional people! The main reasons are that they are honest and fair. I feel like I'm going to see family when I go there. Dr. Johnson and his team always treat you with care. They are very gentle, because I'm sure that they are cognizant of the fact that most people are very frightened to see a dentist and get their teeth cleaned or treated. Great people-highly recommended!

Dr. Johnson and his staff worked with me when I had a recent dental emergency. He was able to work me into his schedule and diagnose my cracked tooth and provide temporary relief from the pain. I am extremely happy with my new crown and feel that Dr. Johnson did an amazing job. 


I wouldn't go anywhere else! I have a phobia of dentists and had stayed away from any for 5-6 years until I found Doctor Johnson. He worked with me and seemed to understand my fear. With a genetic tendency for gum problems, he has done everything to help encourage me to improve my dental health. Even when I went to grad school and had access to the low-cost university dentist, I chose to have Dr Johnson do my dental work. 5 stars all the way.

Dr. Johnson is a high-quality dentist who takes the time to explain any procedure you need to have done, which greatly puts you at ease. I recently broke off a piece of one of my back molars while eating at a restaurant. I called his office and Dr. Johnson was able to see me right away and fit me in to his schedule. I ended up needing a crown and couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you, Dr. Johnson!     

I have been going to Dr. Johnson's office for a number of years and I cannot recommend them enough.  The staff is knowledgeable, courteous and always friendly - there is a caring, personal touch here that you do not find with all Dental Offices.  

From the moment you arrive you are greeted with a smile and a warm demeanor by Mary at the front desk, and that feeling continues through the rest of your visit.  Dr. Johnson always takes the time to explain any necessary procedures and offers advice & tips on ways that I can improve my teeth in advance of the next visit.

I know that often people don't usually enjoy going to the dentist, which is why I have told referred so many people to Dr. Johnson - here you really feel like you are part of the family.

Best Dentist In the World!!!!!! 

My wife has been going to Dr. Johnson for quite some time now and she introduced me to him about 12 years ago. I have never felt so comfortable with a dentist as I have with Dr. Johnson. I have had a lot of work done by Dr. Johnson and have never felt any pain... AT ALL! If you are afraid of going to the dentist because of the pain, you need not fear Dr. Johnson. He is easy going and patient and does not try to sell you anything you don't need. Another thing that makes his office great is, he is prompt. If your appointment is at 2, then you are in your chair and being worked on at 2. He doesn't over book, which speaks volumes about his care for his patients.

 Jerry Johnson is the best dentist I've ever been to. I used to go to Dental Plus in Pasadena, and although their dentists were very competent, they were always trying to get me to do what I thought were unnecessary procedures (like veneers I didn't want or need). Jerry is the exact opposite of this. He's very laid-back, knowledgeable, and never tries to rip you off. His staff are friendly, polite, and intelligent. I think he already has plenty of patients, but I'd strongly recommend him if you're looking for a dentist in the Pasadena area.
