Are missing teeth leaving holes in your smile? Gaps in your smile can make you feel self-conscious and may even impact your speech and chewing function. If you want to restore your complete smile, dental bridges may be the right option. At Topsfield Smiles, we can design a beautiful dental bridge to replace missing teeth, giving you back your confidence and attractive smile.
Dental bridges are designed to use your existing teeth to support a prosthetic tooth or teeth. If you have one or more missing teeth, pontics (prosthetic teeth) can be attached to dental crowns that fit over the adjacent teeth. This is a dental bridge, comprised usually of two crowns and one or more pontics. The crowns and pontics are designed to match the color and alignment of your other teeth, creating a natural-looking appearance for your smile.
Replace Missing Teeth
Dental bridges are a great option for patients who want to restore one or more missing teeth but do not want a partial denture or dental implants. Dental bridges are fixed in place, which makes them more reliable than a removable denture. While dental bridges are not as strong as a dental implant, they are more cost-effective and may be an option for those who are not good candidates for tooth implants.
To perform a dental bridge procedure, our dentist will create a design for your restoration device. Your adjacent teeth will be prepared for the dental crowns – some tooth material is removed to make space for the crowns. The crowns and pontics are created in the dental lab, and the bridge is designed. Once complete, the bridge is bonded in place and attached with the dental crowns.
Dental bridges can give you back your complete smile, improving function and your appearance. If you want to explore options for replacing missing teeth, come see us at Topsfield Smiles.
