See Why Crowns and Bridges Are So Popular
With crowns and bridges, you know, a bridge is going to fill in a missing space. And so you’ll have a lot of patients, they’re trying to chew, and they have a big gap in one side. They’ll notice the food just kind of always wants to slip up in there. So this just kind of helps rebuild that surface area, gives you an even area for chewing. And it’s just a lot better, you know, to have a crown than a really large filling that we’re always worried about breaking. Because at some point, a really large filling is going to break. So it kind of gives you an ease of mind that you have this nice strong crown that you can just treat as a regular tooth, do your chewing. You don’t have to worry about it breaking off. You brush and floss just like normal. And so it’s just really kind of a nice replacement for a natural tooth.
