If you have lost one or more teeth in a row, Dr. Glenn M. Wilson may recommend replacing them with a fixed dental bridge. Bridges are non-removable restorations, and are designed to provide a long-term solution for your smile by replacing missing teeth to restore your smile and oral function. At our office, we have chosen to provide only metal-free bridges. Bridges may be made from a variety of materials. However, metal-free bridges more closely mimic your natural teeth, giving you a more beautiful smile and providing a healthier long-term solution.
A dental bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth or teeth, which are anchored to the adjoining teeth through dental crowns. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to ensure that your smile will not shift and that the bridge will not come loose. These crowns may be placed on the teeth to either side of the gap or on dental implants.
Some benefits of dental bridges include:
- Giving you back your ability to chew, speak and eat normally
- Reliving stress on your bite
- Replacing or preventing the need for a partial denture
- Holding your remaining teeth in their proper positions
- Supporting the shape and volume of your face
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
It usually requires two appointments to our office to complete your dental bridge and finish restoring your smile.
