Our experienced dentist may recommend dental bridges if you are missing teeth.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are an alternative tooth replacement option for dental implants and dentures. Bridges are typically recommended to replace single teeth or several missing teeth in a row and are permanently fixed in the mouth using dental crowns or implants on either side of the gap.
Bridges are recommended to:
- Fill gaps in your mouth left by missing teeth
- Reduce the chance of surrounding teeth moving out of place
- Restore the functionality of your teeth for proper chewing and speaking
- Improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile
Dental bridges usually only require two appointments at our dental office. Our dentist will clean and prep your mouth during the first appointment and take an impression of your mouth to create the model for your bridge. The second appointment is the adjustment stage, where your bridge is checked for comfort and fitted into place.
