Restorative Dentistry From Your Dentist in Arlington, TX
Filling the space a missing tooth leaves behind, a dental crown and bridge is a device that restores optimal function and aesthetics to your mouth. Permanently set in place, a bridge is anchored by crowns on one or more adjacent natural teeth (or dental implants), and at Golden Rule Dental Care in Arlington, TX, we know that these restorations restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence!
What is a dental crown?
Used to cap and strengthen a damaged tooth, crowns are made from porcelain or ceramic materials and are also used to help anchor a bridge by serving as anchors on either end of the device. Crowns are also used on top of a dental implant to recreate the look and function of a natural tooth.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that fills in areas where one or more teeth are missing, helping to prevent issues with shifting. Bridges are cemented onto natural teeth – or crown-topped implants – that have been fitted with crowns on one or both sides. A prosthetic tooth is positioned in the open space and attached to the adjacent tooth/teeth.
How long will a crown & bridge last?
With diligent and daily dental care, along with regular visits to our office, these devices have the potential to last 15 years or more!
