What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges, also known as fixed partial dentures, literally bridge the gap between missing teeth. A bridge is created by placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap to “anchor” the new tooth/teeth.
Why replace missing teeth?
Missing teeth can cause problems in speaking and chewing and can even alter the shape of your face. Plus, you may not feel as confident showing your smile off with any noticeable gaps.
Dental bridges can:
- Restore your smile
- Restore the ability to chew and speak properly
- Return your bite back to alignment
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
