Do you have missing teeth that are causing you to have to adjust your life in a way you would rather not? Are you avoiding going out in public or only wanting to be with people you are close to because you have missing teeth? Are some of your teeth getting worn down because you are chewing with that side of your mouth more to compensate for missing teeth?

There are several options for you to restore your smile, replace your missing teeth, and get functionality back, so you can do the things you love. One of those solutions is dental bridges.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is a device that is attached on each side to dental crowns. They bridge over the missing teeth in your smile.

Placing A Dental Bridge

Your cosmetic dentist will attach dental bridges to the teeth on either side of a missing tooth or teeth. The teeth that surround the gap are capped with dental crowns in order to secure the dental bridge.

The space where the missing teeth are that the dental bridge spans is filled with natural-looking replacement teeth. A bridge can be made of a combination of gold, alloys, and porcelain for strength and natural appearance.

The success of any dental bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth to which it is attached. Therefore, it’s very important to maintain good dental health by keeping your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.
