If you break a tooth, have a filling, or a root canal treatment this can have consequences for the relative strength of your teeth. The larger the filling, the weaker the tooth will be afterwards. Sometimes, to prevent a tooth or wisdom tooth breaking, and therefore needing to be removed entirely, a dental crown and bridge may be necessary.

What are crowns?
Crowns, sometimes known as dental caps, are added on to or around weak teeth to prevent them from breaking. Nowadays crowns are white and you will not often come across a crown with a dark edge. However, in rare cases a metal edged crown is still needed.
What are bridges?
Imagine you lost a tooth. If it is impossible to replace the tooth with an implant, you may decide to fill the gap in the dental arch with a bridge. Your teeth on both sides of the bridge will be crowned and between the crowns a bridge will replace the lost tooth.
How your Amsterdam dentist prepares a dental crown and bridge
The dentists at Tandarts Jordaan have all completed extensive post graduate courses to produce high quality and professional crowns and bridges, using the latest Cerec techniques.
These days, it´s no longer necessary to make imprints of, e.g., a broken wisdom tooth and then wait for weeks until your crown is ready. At the start of treatment, the broken tooth will be ground away to create a strong base for the new crown, after which a tiny camera is used to make a scan of your teeth. On the basis of the scan, a computer program calculates the ideal shape of your new crown or bridge. The new crown or bridge is therefore designed to fit perfectly with the rest of your teeth, giving it even better functionality than the old tooth.
Our in-house dental technician makes the crown, using a special baking and glazing process, and does so on the spot. They take care to ensure it matches the colour of the surrounding teeth too. The crown is then placed and you can go go home with a strong and complete smile.
A good dentist is not only good with teeth, but also with people. At Tandarts Jordaan we always take the time to explain properly what we will be doing, and just as importantly, why we´re doing it.

Very knowledgeable dentist in a beautiful practice. They work with the latest equipment, you will always be helped quickly and friendly. It is clear to see that there is a good atmosphere between the different employees.
Truly a fantastic practice. Been a patient here for years. Normally I always finish the check-ups very quickly, but today during lunch at work I bit a tooth in half. Called Tandartsjordaan, and was able to go straight after work tonight. Treatment was painless and quick. They managed to save my tooth, which had really broken down. Thank you Tandartsjordaan!
Very nice and well served. Nice practice with friendly and above all knowledgeable employees. Fortunately I switched!
More than satisfied !! I have been coming here for a few years now and am extremely satisfied. Pleasant practice with the most advanced equipment! A crown placed within 1 day! Awesome
I was able to go to work in the short term. My front tooth has been repaired very professionally. The dentist and assistant were very involved and the result is fantastic. Thanks again.
Great dentist. It's not only spring in the eyes of the dental assistant.
Top dental practice. Recommended! I am very satisfied! Great team, from the receptionists to the dental hygienists, the assistants and the highly skilled dentists with excellent service with the patient at the center. They think along with you, put you at ease, are also great with children and it is a practice where everything is under one roof. Fast and painless. I am very happy that I came here 4 years ago. I dare to smile again and many of my acquaintances and friends have also enjoyed going to this dental practice for years. Tandartspraktijk Jordaan also has super service, even on Sundays and evenings until 10 pm! to be open! They are exactly the average in North Holland in terms of prices. (Have requested multiple quotes). Not cheap, but logical! Most prices are determined by the government, so no discussion. If you are going for quality, durability and service, then you have come to the right place at Tandarts Jordaan.
Fortunately, after an accident, I was immediately able to visit my own dentist on a Sunday. I have never had such a fine dentist before and can recommend everyone to go here. They are incredibly knowledgeable, but also sweet, especially if you are afraid of the dentist like me. They take their time and reassure you. So hereby a big Thank you!
An extremely professional dental practice, unlike anything I have encountered before in Amsterdam and The Hague. Very knowledgeable dentists, who clearly explain exactly what they perform during a treatment and they know how to put patients at ease.
Wat een fantastische praktijk! Het was noodzakelijk drie kronen te plaatsen, boven middenvoor. Echter, als de bestaande kroon als uitgangspunt gebruikt zou worden, zou het rijtje niet het mooist mogelijke resultaat geven. De oude kroon is daarom door tandarts Bakker kosteloos vervangen. Dit stijgt mi ver uit boven klantvriendelijkheid of betrokkenheid en heeft ook te maken met passie voor het vak.
De behandeling was geruststellend, duidelijk, plezierig en professioneel. De vier kronen werden voor het afbakken door de tandtechnicus aangepast aan mijn wensen, weer zonder extra kosten. Het resultaat is een plaatje. Allen die hieraan bijdroegen: dank jullie wel!
