Building on Your Smile
Gaps in your smile are no laughing matter, as they can lead to the drifting of surrounding teeth. Dental bridges eliminate gaps by literally bridging the space between missing teeth. Most dental bridges are made of a false tooth that is held together by two crowns. The bridge is then attached to the teeth on each side of the gap. The finished result is a natural, beautiful smile.
Dental bridges are comfortable and durable, and can only be removed by a dentist. If implants are not an option and you’re missing one or more teeth, dental bridges may be the perfect option for you.
Benefits of Dental Bridging
Bridges don’t just improve the appearance of your smile — they also improve the health of your mouth. Missing teeth lead to shifting and the extra pressure on existing teeth can cause jaw problems.
