If you are missing a single tooth or several teeth in a row, our dentist may recommend replacing them with a dental bridge. Bridges are a fixed (non-removable) restoration that replace your missing teeth to give you back a healthy smile. They are typically anchored in place with dental crowns or implants on the teeth to either side of the bridge, and they are custom-made to provide a result that looks and functions like your original teeth.
Our experienced dentist may recommend a dental bridge to:
- Give you back the ability to speak and eat normally
- Relieve stress on your bite
- Restore your beautiful smile
- Keep your remaining natural teeth in their proper positions
- Replace a removable partial denture
- Support the shape and volume of your face
Dental bridges usually take two appointments to complete. During the first, your teeth will be prepared for the bridge, and an impression will be taken. When you return for your second appointment, our dentist will place the completed bridge in your mouth and check to ensure that it fits. The bridge will then be bonded into place to complete your treatment and provide you with a lasting restoration.
