At our Pearland, TX restorative dental practice, we utilize state-of-the-art techniques, biocompatible materials, and years of experience in restorative dentistry to create the best teeth replacements for you. One of our most popular restorative options is a dental crown and bridge. Tooth crowns and dental bridges are excellent for replacing a single missing tooth—or for replacing 2-3 missing teeth in a row.
Missing teeth are not only confidence killers, but they are also destroyers of your oral health. Your bite can get worse because your remaining teeth have an uneven distribution of work—less teeth are doing the work for all. If your bite shifts or changes, it can cause problems with chewing and speaking. Your jaw joints can be affected, too, which can lead to TMJ disorders. Patients who have missing teeth are more likely to get gum disease and have additional tooth loss.
A dental crown and bridge is an affordable teeth-replacement option that can restore order to your mouth and beauty to your smile. The dental bridge is a series of tooth crowns—the replacement tooth crowns and the crowns that will be bonded to the real teeth on either side of the gap. Once our Pearland dentists place your new dental crown and bridge, your smile will be complete—and look naturally gorgeous.
The best benefit is giving you back your smile! Your dental crown and bridge also restores your bite, allowing you to properly chew and speak. Replacing your missing teeth with a dental bridge also maintains the shape of your face and prevents other teeth from shifting out of position.
At our Pearland dental practice, we begin the process for placing your dental bridge by preparing your abutment teeth (the teeth on which the tooth crowns will cover, bonding the bridge into place) and making molds for your custom-made dental bridge. We’ll put in a temporary dental crown and bridge to cover the space and the teeth until your permanent bridge is ready. The process is completed when we place your tooth crowns and dental bridge, adjusting as needed, before bonding into place.
