Is a Dental Bridge the Right Choice for Me?
If you are missing one tooth or several proximal teeth (all in a row), a dental bridge is one of the the most popular ways to help restore your smile.
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable unlike dentures. The dental bridge is anchored in place with dental crowns, which are custom designed to fit your smile. They are placed either on the teeth themselves or on the dental implants which are next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place securely, and you can be sure that your restoration will not shift or come loose.
The procedure typically requires only two visits to our office to complete the fitting and the final restoration. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and will restore the function and appearance of your smile.
In summary, we recommend dental bridges to our patients with missing teeth because:
- They restore your ability to speak, eat, and chew as normal
- Alleviate excess stress on the bite
- Improve the shape and volume of your face
