Dental bridges and crowns are tooth prosthesis that is custom-fitted and used to replace or restore missing or damaged teeth. Bridges are used to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and are anchored in place by the natural teeth or crowns nearest the empty space. Crowns are fixed over the surfaces of natural tooth structures or dental implants. Both crowns and bridges are non-removable and must be cemented in place. Patients who get crown or bridges to restore their smiles achieve both the function and appearance of natural, healthy teeth.

A fixed bridge:

• Fill space of missing teeth.

• Maintain facial form and esthetics

• Prevent teeth adjacent to missing teeth from moving

• Improve eating and speaking ability


Post-treatment care guidelines for bridges and crowns:

Your teeth will need some time to heal following the bridge and crown placement process, so it is normal to experience some sensitivity – especially to hot and cold. Moreover, you may experience soreness in the gums surrounding your restorations, though this is usually manageable with ibuprofen and should subside within a few days.
