Dental bridges offer a reliable and time-tested solution for individuals grappling with the challenge of missing teeth. This dental appliance not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of one’s smile but also plays a critical role in maintaining oral health and function. When teeth are lost, the gap left behind can lead to several issues, including shifting of the surrounding teeth, which might affect the bite and overall facial structure. Dental bridges elegantly bridge this gap, ensuring that the integrity of your smile and the efficiency of your bite are preserved.

Restoring Your Smile with Dental Bridges

Constructed from high-quality materials, dental bridges are composed of one or more prosthetic teeth, known as pontics, which are held firmly in place by crowns secured on the adjacent teeth or implants. This setup creates a seamless and sturdy replacement for missing teeth, blending flawlessly with your natural teeth. The process of getting a dental bridge typically involves a couple of visits to our office. During the first visit, our dentists will prepare the teeth adjacent to the gap by reshaping them to ensure a perfect fit for the crowns. Impressions of the teeth are then taken to customize the bridge, crowns and pontics to match the natural color and shape of your existing teeth.

The Benefits of Our Dental Bridges

The benefits of opting for a dental bridge extend beyond merely filling the gap left by missing teeth. They restore the ability to chew and speak properly, which might be compromised due to tooth loss. Furthermore, by distributing the forces in your bite more evenly, bridges help in preventing additional wear and tear on the remaining natural teeth. They also contribute to the maintenance of your face’s natural shape by preventing the sunken appearance that can occur with tooth loss. In addition to practical benefits, dental bridges significantly enhance the visual appeal of your smile, boosting your confidence and self-esteem. They serve as a long-term solution, with the potential to last for decades with proper care, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups.
