What is a Dental Bridge?
When you think about a bridge when you are driving, it is used to connect two places when land is missing. The concept of a dental bridge is similar. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth structure that is used to fill in a gap where teeth are missing, have been extracted by a dentist, have experienced severe trauma, or are experiencing severe decay. A dental bridge is secured in place by connecting prosthetic teeth to natural teeth. In some cases, a dental bridge can also be used in conjunction with dental implants when there are no healthy, natural teeth present. You can see from the before and after pictures of our patient that a dental bridge can lead to a remarkable change in your smile.
What are the Benefits of a Dental Bridge?
One of the biggest benefits of choosing a dental bridge is that it helps restore the proper function and appearance of your teeth without the need for extensive dental treatments. For example, using a dental implant in each location a tooth may be missing can be extremely expensive and a very time-consuming process. A dental bridge is a minimally invasive and cost-effective way to restore your smile.
