Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, our experienced dentists may recommend a bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a type of dental restoration that can replace one or more teeth. Because a dental bridge is a fixed restoration, it can only be removed by your dentist. The dental bridge is composed of one or more artificial teeth (depending on how many teeth are missing) and two dental crowns. Dr. Jelinek and Dr. Silva place the dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap in order to anchor the artificial teeth. A bridge is typically regarded as a more stable type of restoration than a partial denture. Dental bridges can replace your missing teeth and improve your smile by:
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Restoring your ability to properly eat, speak, and chew
- Preventing the remaining teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Improving facial volume and appearance
- Alleviating stress on the bite
