Crown and Bridge Therapy in Lakewood, CA
Complete your smile with crown and bridge therapy!
A bridge can be made to replace as many as three teeth in a row. A fixed bridge is a dental prosthetic that greatly resembles a partial denture, except that the bridge is sealed permanently into place with dental crowns. These attach the bridge to the teeth adjacent to the space in your smile. With today’s technology, bridges can be made to blend well into your row of teeth.
Bridges can help maintain the position of your bite, too! When teeth are lost, other teeth along your gum line will shift inward to fill the gap. This prevents complications from developing and fully enhances the appearance of your smile.
It is important to note that the licensed ceramist who will craft your bridge will make it match your existing shade of enamel. Therefore, if you would like to whiten your smile, ask us about our teeth whitening prior to your crown and bridge consultation. Bridges do not respond to teeth whitening like natural enamel does. This way, your crown and bridge will be made to match your brilliantly white teeth. Ask us about this treatment today by contacting our main office.
