Dental crowns and bridges are two of the ways that we repair and replace damaged and missing teeth at Dothan Dental Group. Crowns and bridges have some distinct advantages over other options. For example, unlike dentures or partials, crowns and bridges do not need to be removed and cleaned because they are attached to existing teeth (or implants!) and are cleaned in the same way as your own natural teeth.
If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be a great candidate for a dental bridge. When gaps exist between the teeth in your mouth, your bite can suffer. This situation can also lead to dental disease.
A dental bridge is normally used to replace one or more teeth by spanning the space where the teeth no longer exist. As is the case with crowns, patients have the option to choose which materials are used to create their dental bridge.
