What is a dental bridge?
If you're missing one or more teeth, you may notice a significant difference in chewing and speaking
A bridge can help maintain the shape of your face, as well as correcting your bite by replacing missing teeth. Sometimes called a fixed partial, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and bridges the gap where one or more teeth are missing. Unlike a removable partial, which you can take out, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist. The foundational teeth under the bridge are important anchors that determine the success and longevity of the bridge.
It is very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.
A dental bridge can improve your smile by:
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Restoring lost facial volume
- Improving your ability to properly chew, eat and speak
- Preventing the other teeth from shifting in the mouth
In most cases, a dental bridge can be completed in just two visits to our dental office. Please call or visit us today to learn more about how a dental bridge can restore your smile.
