Good options to replace missing teeth
Dental Crowns and Bridges
The presence of a severely damaged tooth or empty space in the smile affects its appearance and functionality. That's why it's imperative to have a dental restoration or replacement done in these situations. Your dentist at General Dentist Solutions in Ottawa offers high-quality crowns and bridges for this purpose. With these, your teeth will be restored to their full functional and aesthetic qualities.
What is a dental bridge?
A bridge is designed to replace a tooth (sometimes two) located between two healthy teeth. Made of a mixture of ceramic and metal that ensures its strength and aesthetics, it has two main sections:
- The pontic: this is the name given to the replacement tooth that is suspended between two crowns;
- Abutments: These are the neighboring teeth on which the crowns are placed to support the bridge. These support teeth must be trimmed before the crowns are attached. This preparation allows the bridge to remain firmly and permanently in place.
