Dental Cement for Bridges and Crowns
Damaged or missing teeth can be restored through prosthetic devices that return your toothy smile. A crown is installed when the tooth structure is damaged, whereas bridging involves gapping the missing tooth or teeth. Visit Burkett’s dentistry to be assessed as a candidate for crowning or bridging.
Do Crown and Bridges Last?
Crowns and bridges can last a lifetime. However, you do need to maintain oral hygiene to ensure their longevity. The dental cement for bridges might fall off if the teeth or the bone holding it in place is damaged. Do clean your teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and floss them daily. Even if you do not have any dental issues, do make it a point to visit a doctor once a month. Having a professional checkup in a professional environment helps you maintain good oral health.
