A dental crown is a fixed prosthetic used to restore teeth. Permanent crowns can be cemented over the structure of an existing tooth to cover, or “cap,” it. We make our dental crowns out of porcelain for a durable, natural-looking restoration.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is made from a series of crowns. Bridges are used to fill the space left behind by the loss of one or more teeth. We use bridges as an affordable alternative to dental implants. Our dentists recommend bridges to replace missing teeth and maintain the health of your bite.

Without a bridge, your surrounding teeth may drift out of place to fill the gap in your smile. This can increase your risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and TMJ. As to implant-supported bridge, A bridge supported by implants can be utilized to replace several lost teeth and restore your mouth’s aesthetics and function. It is a single restoration that utilizes adjacent dental implants for support.

Typically, numerous appointments are required to finish this process of dental restoration. By emulating the lost teeth’s root structure, dental implants provide a stable, permanent method to replace missing teeth. It also enables the replacement of several lost teeth when it would be impractical to install multiple implants to support individual restorations.

Your doctor will take a first impression of the affected area and the surrounding teeth, which will be utilized to plan your implant placements and create a temporary bridge. Then, the area is prepped for dental implant placement for your permanent bridge.

Implants and unique healing caps are then put into the bone. While you are healing, a temporary restoration can be placed over the affected area or damaged tooth; your doctor will discuss the best solutions for your circumstance with you. If you think that it is time for you to get dental bridges, the don’t hesitate to call us. We got all the help you can get; traditional dental bridge, resin-bonded bridge, we got it all!

How Long Do Tooth Crowns and Bridges Last?
