Dental bridges are a tried-and-true solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring both function and aesthetics to your smile. Whether you have lost a tooth due to decay, injury or other factors, a dental bridge can seamlessly fill the gap, giving you back the confidence to eat, speak and smile with ease. Crafted from high-quality materials such as porcelain or ceramic, dental bridges are custom-made to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, ensuring a natural-looking result. By anchoring the bridge to the neighboring teeth or a dental implant, our dentist and team creates a stable foundation that mimics the strength and stability of your original teeth.

Beyond enhancing your smile’s appearance, dental bridges offer practical benefits as well. They help maintain the alignment of surrounding teeth, preventing them from shifting into the empty socket left by the missing tooth. This not only preserves the integrity of your bite but also reduces the risk of other dental issues such as misalignment or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Additionally, dental bridges provide support to the facial structures, preventing the sunken appearance that can occur when teeth are missing for an extended period. By filling the space left by the missing tooth, bridges help maintain the natural contours of your face, restoring a youthful appearance and enhancing your overall facial symmetry.

If a dental bridge is deemed the best solution for you, the process starts with the adjacent teeth being prepared to receive the bridge. We will take impressions of your teeth to make sure they fit precisely and comfortably. Once they are finished, our dentist will carefully check the fit and appearance of the bridge before permanently cementing it in place. With proper care and maintenance, a dental bridge can last for many years, providing you with a durable and functional solution for your missing tooth.
