When Are Crowns & Bridges Recommended?
Dental crowns can be used to not only protect a tooth but also to replace a missing tooth. This is done using a dental bridge, which consists of two crowns on either side of an artificial tooth. The bridge is custom-made at our partner lab based upon impressions taken at our office. It is made using a strong, natural-looking material that is completely metal-free.
Bridges are required when one of your teeth is missing. For treatment with dental bridges, we take an impression of your teeth, discuss your preferences, and send this off to our partner lab. Once returned, the newly created bridge is placed. At the start of this process, your dentist prepares the two neighboring teeth and then places the crowns over these teeth. The crowns act as an anchor to hold your new tooth into place and thus give you back your complete smile.
The Benefits of Dental Crowns & Bridges
The use of dental crowns and bridges for restoration carries many benefits beyond just aesthetics, as there are additional health benefits that come from the prevention of:
- Teeth shifting
- Increased plaque buildup
- Pain while chewing
Dental bridges are also remarkably durable, and your dentist will even assess them to make sure everything is still in good condition during your regular check-ups and exams.
