Crowns and Bridges
If you have lost teeth due to accident, injury or disease, we can help you create a permanent bridge to restore your smile. A bridge fills the gap caused by your missing tooth and can also prevent repositioning of remaining teeth. Other benefits include…
- Aligning your bite
- Improving chewing and speech
- Giving you a more youthful appearance
There are two types of dental bridges — fixed and implant supported.
In both types, a prosthetic tooth “bridges the gap” left by a missing tooth and attaches on one or both sides of the surrounding teeth.
A fixed bridge is permanently joined onto the neighboring crowned teeth. An implant supported bridge uses an implant to help maintain the stability of the bridge.
