Dental bridges are a convenient cosmetic solution for dealing with missing teeth. With dental bridges, we span the gap of a missing tooth by using the neighboring teeth as anchors. The dental bridge process is simple.
The existing teeth adjacent to the missing space are reshaped for crowns to fit over them. These teeth are considered “abutments,” since they serve as the base for the bridge. The bridge, which is made up of two crowns and a center replacement tooth, are then placed over the abutments with a strong adhesive.
Dental bridges restore your ability to eat and speak properly, as well as the aesthetic beauty of your smile. With proper maintenance and regular dental checkups, dental bridges can last for years.
