Losing a tooth could lead to an embarrassing gap in your smile, and over time, major complications for the function and health of your smile. But don’t worry! At Plaza Family Dentistry, we know the value of a complete smile, and have a solution for minor tooth loss. With a crown and bridge, you will once again be able to eat your favorite foods, speak with confidence, and smile without worry!
Crowns and bridges could replace a single missing tooth, or up to three in a row, with a secure and lifelike prosthetic. The prosthetic contains new teeth, called pontics, and features crowns attached to each end. We place the crown onto the natural teeth, called abutment teeth, on either side of the gap in your smile. The crowns secure your bridge firmly in place, so you enjoy a balanced bite, proper smile alignment, and of course, a stunning smile.
Each crown and bridge is custom-made, and we take steps throughout the entire process to ensure your comfort. The materials employed in both the crown and bridge will be designed to absorb daily bite forces, and blend seamlessly with the smile. We will monitor your new prosthetic in follow-up visits, and recommend care to preserve your remaining natural teeth and keep your new prosthetic strong. You will once again smile with confidence, and avoid further issues due to one or more missing teeth!
