Reclaim your smile’s appearance and functionality with crown and bridgework at Peery Family Dentistry
Missing teeth can lead to a variety of potentially serious issues, ranging from a diminished sense of self-confidence and trouble eating to periodontal disease and further tooth loss. While dentures and partials may prove an adequate solution for some patients, many men and women find that they prefer a more permanent, structurally sound solution to gaps in their smiles. If you are missing one or more teeth and you’re ready to enjoy the many benefits of complete dentition once again, talk with Drs. Peery and Peery about crown and bridge therapy.
Unlike dental prosthetics that are removed for regular cleaning and while you sleep, crown and bridgework prosthetics are permanently affixed to your existing teeth. First, the two teeth that will support your bridge will be prepared to accept brand new crowns. These crowns, customized to fit your natural teeth, will serve as stable anchors for a bridge that spans the gap where you are missing teeth. Between the crowned teeth, an artificial tooth (or group of teeth) will be placed. This replacement tooth is called a pontic. When the entire crown and bridge prosthetic is placed and cemented, the restorative process is complete. The result is a seamlessly beautiful smile that affords freedom as well as aesthetic appeal.
Because our office is equipped with Sirona CEREC technology, we are able to design, create, and place beautifully crafted crowns and bridges in a single visit. There is no need for a temporary restoration or multiple appointments. You simply come in for your procedure in need of a crown or bridge, and leave happily with your beautiful restoration in place.
When you have missing teeth that aren’t replaced in a timely manner, the remaining teeth in the area begin to shift out of their proper places. This can affect your ability to chew and speak as efficiently and comfortably as you’d like. A crown and bridge fixture helps keep your existing teeth in place, allowing you to smile and eat the foods you love with confidence. Because this type of dental prosthetic is cemented to the abutments (or the crowned teeth that support the bridge), you don’t have to concern yourself with the possibility of it coming loose while you’re enjoying a meal or a conversation. All of the crown and bridgework that we perform at Peery Family Dentistry is meticulously customized to precisely match your original dentition, promoting a flawlessly natural appearance and exceptionally comfortable fit.
