Smile Extreme

The purpose of Crown and Bridgework is to restore the health and appearance of your smile after tooth loss.

This treatment will restore lost teeth, support remaining teeth and help keep our teeth in proper position and proper bite.

If you are faced with tooth loss or the destruction of tooth structure - Crown and Bridge treatment may be right for you. This long term solution can help prevent the cycle of problems that occur when just one tooth is missing, such as shifting and drifting of remaining teeth, decay and periodontal bone loss.

A Bridge is essentially a device anchored to surrounding teeth that replaces one or more existing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with cemented bridgework, the tooth on either side of the missing one must be prepared as crowns to serve as a support to hold the Bridge in place.

This procedure usually takes from two appointments to complete. Since the Bridge must be carefully constructed to match your natural teeth and ensure a correct bite, several impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to the lab, which will construct the Bridge. Temporary Crowns will be placed to protect the exposed teeth until the next appointment.
