Bridges are one of the more traditional ways of replacing a missing tooth or several missing teeth. In typical situation where a person is missing one tooth, we crown the teeth on either side of the missing tooth and actually attach a replacement tooth to these two crowns and it gets cemented in as one piece. It's non-removable. It's cemented into place. People can actually feel like it is their normal tooth. They can have good biting force and good chewing capacity with a bridge much more so than a removable appliance.

Crowns Are a Versatile Way to Rebuild Your Mouth
Dental crowns and bridges are two tools Dr. Hoop frequently uses to rebuild a patient’s mouth for both function and beauty. Our natural teeth are meant to last forever, but sometimes they need to be restored or even replaced. Dental crowns are the ideal way to keep the smile functional for years. A few reasons patients might benefit from crowns:
- Covering chips, cracks, breaks, or heavy stains
- Repairing teeth with dental decay
- Restoring teeth after a root canal procedure
- Improving the bite
- Relieving jaw problems or frequent headaches by correcting bite issues
Bridges Replace Missing Teeth
Dental bridges are restorations made from a series of crowns. They are used to replace single missing teeth or gaps in the smile left by several teeth in a row. Placing a dental bridge requires us to file down teeth to support the new appliance. Some patients don’t want to file down healthy teeth, so they instead use dental implants to secure a bridge.
Dr. Hoop has nearly 30 years of experience placing dental implants. He uses implants to replace single missing teeth, restored with crowns, or large gaps in teeth, using implant-supported bridges.
