Much like dental crowns, bridges can be customized for any patient and can be made of a few different materials. Bridges are not seen as permanent as a cap because it is bonded to the surrounding teeth and only removable by your dentist.
Both crowns and bridges are specially formulated to match the shading, surface and general appearance of your teeth. Most crowns and bridges will last just about forever, eliminating the need to perform any maintenance unless they become loose or fall out.
You may extend the life of your crowns and bridges by practicing good oral hygiene habits and coming in to see Dr. Lloyd for your routine cleanings, as well.
