Dental bridges are often used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite.
A bridge replaces missing teeth with porcelain crowns that are joined together to look and feel like natural teeth. A bridge does have limitations, however, due to the length of the bridge and that of the supporting teeth.
The success of any bridge depends on its foundation—the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it’s very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.
What’s new with crowns and bridges?
The materials that porcelain crowns are made of is ever-changing, and we at Skyline Dentistry are known for only using the latest.
The newest materials are as translucent as natural teeth and almost as strong. They can appear so lifelike that distinguishing them from other teeth can oftentimes be very difficult.
