Crowns & Bridges | Newport Beach, CA

Crowns and bridges are some of the most common dental restorations used in cosmetic and general dentistry procedures. They can be fabricated from many different materials depending on the needs and budget of the patient. We like to use gold in areas where the crown is not visible due to its durability, biocompatibility, and sealed margins. We recommend all ceramic eMax crowns in visible areas due to their aesthetics and durability.  We will always discuss options with patients in order to make the best decisions together.

  • I highly recommend Dr Spath to anyone looking for a great dentist in Orange County! I've been going to his office for about 3 years now and everyone is always very friendly and helpful. I'm doing Invisalign now during pregnancy and I am almost done! Dr. Spath has always been very nice and attentive helping me get the best possible results. My teeth look great! : )

Why choose

Dental Crowns

A crown is used when a large portion of the tooth has a failing existing filling, a large area of decay or a root canal treatment. Crowns are made from the same material as veneers, lithium disilicate(eMax) and are extremely esthetic.

A crown, also referred to as a cap, is a restorative piece bonded over a tooth where the structure has been compromised by disease, a large filling, or breakage. To place a crown, the patient is anesthetized while a portion of the enamel is removed before an impression is made. This is sent to a laboratory to create the crown, while in the meantime, a temporary is bonded into place. Once the final crown arrives back to the practice, patients return for the cementing of the crown over the tooth. Crowns can be made of gold, gold and ceramic, or even just ceramic.

Dental Bridges

A bridge is an option for someone missing one or several teeth. A bridge replaces missing teeth by connecting teeth adjacent to the missing area with artificial teeth in between.

Bridge Pros
• Faster than an implant

Bridge Cons
• Destruction of healthy adjacent teeth
• Additional forces placed on adjacent teeth and weakening them
• Aesthetics
• Lifespan

Implant Pros
• Longevity
• Aesthetics
• Function
• Conservative

  • Dr. Spath and his team are absolutely amazing! After having a terrible experience with a prior dentist, I looked up dentists. I was surprised and hopeful when I saw Dr. Spath had all 5 star reviews. When I went in today for a consultation to fix my teeth from the prior dentist, I was not disappointed! He definitely lived up to his 5 star reviews! I am so happy to have found such a wonderful and honest dentist and staff. Thank you Dr. Spath and team for truely caring about your patients! I will recommend your office to everyone!

  • “When I first met Dr. Spath he greeted me warmly with a big smile and I could tell right away that he was an extremely down to earth person which made the experience feel like a visit to a friend. During all the procedures I have had with Dr. Spath he showed to be very competent, knowledgeable, and genuinely concerned about my comfort and health of my teeth and gums. He asks if I have any concerns and provides me with preventative care materials if I need it. My crowns look Amazing and I can say that I really Love my smile now. I followed Dr. Spath from office to office and now he has his own practice. His office is charming and simple with a great staff. I will definitely be his lifelong client because of his integrity and refreshing honesty.  So Thank You Dr. Spath for inspiring to take better care of my teeth!!!”

  • Dr Spath, How does a Dentist and his team (and an incredible front office staff) consistently maintain a 5 star rating with so many reviews??? Come to this office, and you will see! Let’s face it, going to the dentist isn’t a pleasurable experience for many people; so when I needed to find a good dentist in my neighborhood, I turned to Yelp. After reading some really fantastic reviews, the choice was clear. From the moment I contacted the office, everyone I’ve dealt with has been extremely professional (which, of course is important for a Doctors office), but beyond that, they have all been so nice, welcoming and friendly to me, that it feels like I’ve known these people for ages, and have been coming to this office for years. They completely WOW’d me! Sincerely, Vance

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Spath’s for over 2 years and have had nothing but great experiences. When I had to get my wisdom teeth pulled a year ago, he walked me thought the process so that I was comfortable with the extraction. Everything went great and I healed quickly! I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a knowledgeable dentist.‎

  • Dear Andrew; I received your welcome letter and relative information in the mail and would like to take the opportunity to respond by saying that it was a very comforting experience I had at your office the other day. As a new patient referral, It was really nice meeting a professional that somehow you felt a connection with and an immediate trust with the personal care and attention you gave me. Since my prior Dentist retirement, It has been two years of trying to get a level of trust and comfort that was immediate on the first visit at your practice. It was not difficult for me to agree that very day to move forward with the work I needed done and I was extremely pleased that you were able to save an existing procedure that had been done several years back. I know at some time we will be addressing a more permanent solution, but in the interim, I am really pleased to be a patient at your clinic and would not hesitate to refer any of my friends or family to your practice. Thanks for the outstanding professional care and I look forward to seeing you on Friday the 6th.

  • Dr. Spath, Thank you so very much for the kind email. You are a dentist like no other. I applied my 2nd fluoride treatment yesterday and bought all my dental health necessities! ( Biotin is great!) This couldn’t happen at a worse time (right before the wedding) but with such kindness, understanding and concern you and your dental office have given me, I truly hope this will work out!
