Repairing a Lost Tooth with a Dental Bridge

Posted .

If you have suffered a case of tooth decay or need to receive cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile, then you may benefit from receiving a dental bridge. We offer an overview of the nature of dental bridges and how they work to meet your cosmetic dentistry needs.

What are dental bridges?
Bridges are very simple and straightforward, serving to bridge the empty space left behind by a missing tooth. The bridge acts to support tooth replacement for the tooth by attaching dental crowns on either side to the teeth that surround the gap. The crowns perform the service of anchoring the replacement tooth or teeth so that we can fill the gap and provide your smile with stability and strength. The natural teeth that attach to the bridge prevent the replacement tooth from slipping or falling out.

What do the dental bridges fix?
Dental bridges are an excellent way to solve issues created by missing teeth. Additionally, their placement can help enhance the appearance of your teeth and improve your bite force, preventing a misaligned bite from resulting in significant oral health problems.
