Hammond dental crowns and bridges

Missing teeth and the distressing gap affects an individual’s appearance and affects how they smile. Fortunately, Hammond dental crowns and bridges will restore that beautiful smile.

Dental bridges, as the name suggests, bridges the gap left by a missing tooth and teeth. It has two crowns on each tooth that placed on whichever side of the gap of the anchoring or abutment teeth and the false (pontics) teeth. The pontics are made of porcelain, alloy, gold or a blend of all materials. The natural teeth or dental implants support the dental bridges.

Dental bridge benefits include:

  • Prevent remaining teeth from falling out of position
  • Maintains the face of the shape
  • Restores ability to speak and chew properly
  • Helps distribute forces that help you bite appropriately through the existing teeth

Hammond dental crowns and bridges options

  • crowing teethCantilever bridges are ideal where there are teeth are adjacent to each other in one section of the missing tooth/teeth. They replace one tooth only.

  • Getting Hammond Dental Crowns and Bridges

During the first visit, the abutment is prepared for the crown which involves re-contouring the teeth to create room for the crown. Next is creating a tooth impression which serves as the crown, bridge, and false tooth model. The dentist will place a bridge that is temporary to protect the exposed teeth and gum.

The dentist will remove the semi-permanent bridge and put in a new and permanent bridge. You will need a few dental visits to assess the metal framework fit and bite. The bridge will permanently be cemented in place in a few weeks.

The dental bridges can last for 5-15 years or longer and will not affect how you speak or eat.
