Bridges

Dental bridges are appliances crafted from crowns to fill spaces from missing teeth. Bridges are permanent fixtures that can help you chew and speak normally.

If you are missing one or more teeth, one of the replacement options to consider is a dental bridge. Dental bridges, like their name suggests, bridge the gap created by missing teeth.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is an appliance that is composed of an artificial tooth and dental crowns. Dental crowns are bonded to your existing teeth on either side of the missing tooth. These crowns are connected to the artificial tooth. When placed, this appliance fills the gap created by the missing teeth.

What are the advantages of a dental bridge?

Dental bridges are used to replace your missing teeth. They look and function like your regular teeth and can make proper eating and speaking possible again. They also stop your existing teeth from moving and shifting. Dental bridges can help you maintain your facial structure and cut down on your risk of bone loss in your jaw. They are cemented in place and feel like natural teeth.

Will people be able to tell that I am wearing a dental bridge?

The dental crowns used to construct a dental bridge will be custom-made for you. This means that they will be color matched and shaped to look like your remaining teeth. Because of this customization, it will be almost impossible to tell that you have a dental bridge. You can rest easy and feel confident in your smile again knowing that your dental bridge looks and functions just like your natural teeth.

How do I care for a dental bridge?

Caring for your dental bridge is simple. All you have to do is maintain the diligent oral hygiene practices that you use to take care of your natural teeth. One of the biggest adversaries of dental bridges is tooth decay. Make sure that you are brushing, flossing, and coming to see us regularly to keep your mouth healthy and preserve your dental bridge for years to come.

Missing teeth can be inconvenient and annoying, causing you to lose confidence in your smile. If you are looking for a tooth replacement option, a dental bridge may be right for you.
