Losing a permanent tooth often affects the health and stability of your dental structure. Support and chewing movements are altered, which may lead to the shifting or loss of other teeth. You also have a much higher risk of gum disease.
A crown and bridge, otherwise known as a fixed bridge, is a custom-made dental appliance that permanently replaces one or more missing teeth. The bridge, which contains replacement porcelain teeth, is attached via crowns to the teeth on either side of the gap. A crown and bridge can restore your natural bite and prevent stress on other teeth.
To ensure that your new crown and bridge is exactly right for you, Dr. Capehart will make careful impressions of the bridge area and then prepare the necessary teeth for the crowns. With your new crown and bridge, your smile will be whole and beautiful!
