Crown & Bridge in San Jose, Costa Rica
If you’re missing one or more teeth and are looking for a restorative option, at Prisma Dental, in San Jose, we know that a crown and bridge treatment may be the right choice for you.
What is a crown?
A prosthetic tooth that’s placed over a natural tooth, dental crowns protect a severely damaged tooth, restoring its size and shape and/or serving as an anchor for a dental bridge. These restorations are typically made from porcelain, ceramic, metal, or gold, are durable and natural-looking, and have the potential to last for 10 years or more with diligent care.
What is a bridge?
A prosthetic device that fills the space left by one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge is situated and anchored between two crowns, restoring a patient’s smile and redistributing the chewing workload more evenly amongst the surrounding teeth. As with crowns, with careful daily oral hygiene habits and regular visits to our office, dental bridges have the potential to last for 10 years or more.
Does a crown and bridge offer additional benefits?
When a tooth is extracted and not replaced, nearby teeth will begin to shift over time. This can cause a variety of oral health problems and increase a patient’s need for complex restorative procedures in the future. In addition, a tooth that’s removed and not replaced can cause facial sagging, wrinkles, and lines at the extraction site.
