Dental Bridges

A Bridge to Confidence

Dental bridges are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. These devices can literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. As a result, they can help restore the look and function of your smile. Dental bridges have two main components: the pontic and the abutments.

The pontic is a replacement tooth, and the abutments are supporting teeth on either side of the bridge. With dental bridges, the abutment teeth may be natural teeth or dental implants. Of course, this depends on your specific needs. 

Why Choose Dental Bridges?

There are many different options for missing teeth. So, why should you choose dental bridges?

Restore Your Smile: Dental bridges provide a natural-looking solution to fill the gaps from missing teeth. As a result, bridges can enhance the beauty and symmetry of your smile. 

Maintain Facial Structure: Missing teeth can lead to a sunken appearance and changes in your facial structure. Additionally, this change to your face can lead to looking older. Dental bridges help maintain the natural shape of your face. 

Enhance Speech: Gaps in your teeth can affect your speech. This is because your teeth are vital parts to produce certain sounds. Once they are gone, it can be hard to say certain words properly. So, bridges can improve your ability to pronounce words correctly and communicate with confidence. 

Improve Chewing Function: Missing teeth can make chewing difficult. The chewing function is an important part of your digestive process. When you have missing teeth, it can impact your diet and overall health. Luckily, dental bridges restore your ability to eat a variety of foods comfortably. 

Prevent Teeth Shifting: When a tooth is missing, adjacent teeth may shift over time. Unfortunately, this can cause alignment issues. With dental bridges, you can prevent this unwanted movement, helping maintain the proper alignment of your teeth.
