Crowns, Bridges, and Dental Implants in Tempe

Crowns, Bridges and Dentures

After one or more teeth are lost it can become a challenge to eat, speak or smile the way you used to. Teeth are meant to work together, but when one or more teeth are lost the effects can be damaging or worsen over time. Whether tooth decay, aging or a dental injury has caused the loss of one or more teeth, replacing a decayed or missing tooth can be essential to preventing further dental problems and encouraging better dental and overall health.

Risks of Tooth Loss

After losing one or more teeth, remaining teeth are put at risk of developing further negative consequences. If you have lost one or more teeth consider the risks of leaving your smile untreated:

  • Remaining teeth may shift or move and change the form of the bite
  • Your natural face shape may drag, droop or appear aged after tooth loss
  • Risks increase for tooth decay, gum disease or infection
  • May interfere with abilities to eat, speak or smile without difficulty
  • A change in bite may result in TMJ-related jaw pain or TMD

What is a Dental Crown and Bridge?

A dental crown may be referred to as a false tooth or replacement tooth for its use in restoring missing teeth with a dental bridge or sealing a tooth in some cases of root canal therapy. Strong composite resin or porcelain dental crowns are colored-matched to your existing teeth and are carefully designed to support a natural looking smile with a bridge, dental implant or custom made dentures. Dental bridges include the use of one or more dental crowns to fill the gaps where one or more teeth have been lost by attaching or “bridging” dental crowns to adjacent remaining teeth. These prosthodontic devices can drastically improve the feel and function of your smile without requiring more involved dental processes.

Benefits of Dental Crowns and Bridges

When you come in for an appointment for a dental crown and bridge, your bite can be improved or restored back to its natural feel and function. After tooth replacement with a dental crown or bridge your smile is also realigned and your abilities to eat, speak and smile may benefit. Dental crowns and bridges can be fixed or removable and will last many years with proper care and practicing a good dental hygiene routine at home.
