Are you bothered by injured or missing teeth? Your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and maintaining proper alignment throughout the mouth. Despite preventative care and a vigilant at-home routine, your teeth may still fall victim to the needs of restoration. If you do lose teeth, they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss. Through Twin Dental’s crown and bridge procedures, your dull smile will soon be revived. We are committed to restoring your mouth to its attractive, properly functioning form.Most dental restorations are obvious and noticeable within the mouth. Our goal is to provide undetectable dentistry that both looks and feels like your original teeth. When damage to natural teeth is beyond repair, we can use porcelain crowns to restore a complete smile and functional bite. This is a reliable technique for repairing casual to serious dental problems. The crown will blend in seamlessly to the mouth, without utilizing hooks or clasps. Crowns offer totally normal function for a long period of time, typically remaining intact many years.
In conjunction with crowns, a bridge actually affixes the crown to the missing tooth’s neighboring teeth, allowing the correction become one with your natural smile. Bridges can be either permanently attached (fixed) or removable. Fixed bridges are installed by either placing crowns on the adjacent teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the adjacent teeth. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth with metal clasps. Removable bridges, as the name implies, can be taken out and cleaned.
Oral function and appearance are important reasons for wearing a bridge. A bridge supports your lips and cheeks. The loss of a back tooth may cause your cheeks to sink and your face to look older. In addition, increased risk of gum disease has proven to be one of the worst side effects of missing teeth and can be minimized with a bridge.
We are renowned for the quality of our work and are very proud of the positive changes we make for our patients. Please call our Cincinnati office to explore our crown and bridge options.
