Losing all or part of a tooth can make your whole mouth feel off. It can make chewing painful and cause your smile to look different. Replacing a missing or damaged tooth is important not just so your mouth feels right again but because a missing tooth could cause bone loss and shifting of other teeth. Getting a crown or bridge from a certified prosthodontist can make your mouth look and feel better for years to come.
Dental crowns and bridges are used to replace missing or damaged teeth. A crown is fitted over an existing damaged tooth to protect and strengthen the existing tooth structure. A crown is ideal for individuals who have lost part of a tooth due to cavity or injury and need to strengthen the weakened tooth. A bridge is two crowns and a false tooth used to “bridge” the gap for a missing tooth. A bridge is fitted over two existing teeth to fill the space where a tooth is missing. A bridge is used for individuals who have lost a tooth or teeth due to cavity or injury and need to replace the tooth completely in order to strengthen the mouth and avoid infection.
