A dental bridge is a non-removable dental appliance that is used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. A bridge can be used to accomplish the following:
- Fill gaps left by missing teeth
- Prevent teeth from shifting
- Restore a fully functioning bite
- Retain the natural shape of your face
- Replace a partial denture
- Unhinder and/or improve speech
- Promote a natural, radiant smile
Bridges comprise of two crowns, called abutments, that go over the teeth adjacent to the gap. Between the crowns, an artificial tooth will be placed, known as a pontic. This tooth will look and function like a natural tooth. Best of all, when you smile, no one will know you have a dental appliance!
With proper care and maintenance, bridges can last for many years. Please call to schedule an appointment to improve your smile today!
