Dental Crowns and Bridges (RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY CAN RETURN HEALTH AND FUNCTION TO YOUR SMILE)

Gaps caused by missing teeth can be eliminated by installing bridges in the mouth. Dental bridges combine crowns and implants to improve chewing function and create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

During treatment, the teeth surrounding the gap are lightly buffed and prepared for impressions. After a mold of those teeth has been made, crowns are created to fit the teeth perfectly. A replacement tooth is then bonded to the crowns, creating a single "bridge" that is placed into the patient's mouth. Dental bridges, once cemented to the teeth, provide durable, long-lasting support.

The tooth-colored materials used to make crowns give dental bridges a completely natural look. Thus, in addition to restoring function, dental bridges can improve the appearance of one's smile.
