The development of tooth decay or oral trauma in your smile can result in the need for restorative dentistry to repair damage and improve the appearance of your smile. If you have lost a tooth or need to have a tooth removed, we invite you to consider a dental bridge. We offer the following information to help you learn more about dental bridges and their ability to replace missing teeth.
Bridges are tooth replacement appliances that look like single pieces of dental work. They fill a gap in the teeth resulting from a missing tooth. The bridge is made up of a false tooth that fills the gap and is fused to anchoring dental crowns on either side that fit over neighboring teeth. The crowns are designed to provide stability and strength for the replacement tooth so that it can feel more like a normal tooth and not slide around while you chew.
Benefits of dental bridges that make them an excellent solution for missing teeth is ability to improve smile appearance and support an even bite force. This prevents dental issues caused by a misaligned bite.
