Beacon Hill Dental

What is a dental bridge?

If you have one or more missing teeth, Beacon Hill Dental of Crown Point, IN, can provide you with several options for tooth replacements depending on your unique oral health. A dental bridge is one of those options. Our dentists recommend this appliance if you have one or two missing teeth in a row, where your natural teeth on either side of the gap are healthy.

For patients who fit this profile, we design a tooth replacement framework incorporating one or more artificial teeth. It derives its name from the fact that this replacement literally ‘bridges’ the gap. A dental bridge is a direct and economical way to restore your oral health and complete your smile.

How Dental Crowns Work with Dental Bridges in Crown Point, IN

One benefit of choosing a dental bridge from Beacon Hill Dental is how we supply the top portion that resembles your teeth. These restorations, commonly called dental crowns, are made from high-quality ceramic and designed to match your natural teeth. While some dentists need weeks to wait for an outside dental lab to build their crowns, we use a leading-edge process called CEREC same-day dental crowns.

The CEREC system allows us to design and mill dental crowns in our office, all during a single appointment. This option is advantageous because it uses digital scanning and design software for a more precise restoration compared to traditional crowns, where your tooth impressions are taken using a messy and less reliable material.
