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.
