Crown & Bridge

What is a dental crown and bridge?

A dental crown & bridge is a permanent appliance that replaces a missing tooth or missing teeth. It’s made up of good metals like zirconia or ceramic that are fused together to fit into the open space where your tooth or teeth used to be. Dental bridges are an alternative to partial dentures. They serve both practical and aesthetic purposes, enabling you to eat and speak better as well as restoring your teeth’s appearance. The dental bridge acts as any other bridge by filling up the gap between two existing teeth. The teeth on either side are taken as support for the bridge. The bridge replaces the missing teeth region.
