If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, a bridge might be the right choice for restoring your smile. A dental bridge is a type of non-removable (fixed) restoration that can be used to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. A dental bridge is used to bridge the gap left by the missing teeth. To support the artificial replacement tooth (which is called a pontic), our skilled dentist will place two dental crowns on the teeth or dental implants adjacent to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns anchor the pontic so that your bridge is secure and strong. Dental bridges are natural looking and long lasting. Dr. Brandon R. Magill may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:
- Relieving stress on the bite
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Improving your ability to properly eat, speak, and chew
- Restoring the shape and volume of your face
- Preventing the remaining natural teeth from shifting in the mouth
