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.

Fix Damaged Teeth or Fill Smile Gaps
A dental crown is a tooth-colored shell that completely caps the visible portion of a damaged tooth for improved protection, strength, and appearance. Placing a dental crown is one of the most common restorative dental treatments, and Dr. Hoop uses porcelain for its natural appearance and strength.
Whether we’re placing porcelain crowns or bridges, we’ll use high-strength local anesthesia and then conservatively remove tooth structure to create a perfect fit for the restoration.
Patients often need crowns for these reasons:
- To treat decay that cannot be repaired with a filling
- To protect a tooth after root canal therapy
- To restore a dental implant
We also offer partial crowns, called onlays and inlays, for less severe damage.
A dental bridge, which consists of a series of crowns, literally bridges the gaps in your smile left by missing teeth. To place a bridge, we’ll need to file down teeth to support the restoration. Some patients would rather not shave down healthy teeth and opt to replace single missing teeth with implants attached to crowns instead. Dr. Hoop and his staff ensure that every restoration fits perfectly and lasts for years with proper care.
Restore your mouth with the help of Dr. Hoop and our dental team. To learn more about the power of dental crowns and bridges in Naples, call us today at 239-734-7737.
