A dental bridge is a non-removable dental appliance used to replace a missing tooth (or missing teeth). A bridge can be used to accomplish the following:
Fill gaps left my missing teeth
Prevent the shifting of teeth due to extra space
Restore a fully functioning bite
Retain your face’s natural shape
Replace a partial denture
Promote a natural, radiant smile
Bridges comprise two crowns which go over the teeth, adjacent to the gap. We call these abutment teeth. Between the crowns, we place an artificial tooth, 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!
Please call us to schedule an appointment if you are interested in receiving a bridge treatment.
