A dental bridge is a fixed, or non-removable, restoration. Our dentist typically recommends dental bridges when you are missing a tooth, or several teeth in a row. Dental bridges are designed not only to replace your teeth and restore your smile, but also to help keep your remaining teeth in their correct positions so that you can maintain your tooth alignment and a proper bite. Other benefits of dental bridges include:
- A restored ability to speak, eat, and chew normally
- Alleviating stress on your bite
- Restoring the shape and volume of your face
- The ability to replace an removeable partial denture
- A renewed smile
Your dental bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth anchored to two dental crowns. These dental crowns are bonded into place on the teeth on either side of the gap or placed atop dental implants to hold your bridge in place and ensure that it does not shift or come loose. Your bridge is intended to provide you with a beautiful, long-lasting solution for your smile that you can enjoy for many years to come. Our dentist can usually design and place your dental bridge in just two appointments at our office.
