What is a Dental Bridge?
If you have an unsightly gap in your mouth caused by one or more missing teeth, a bridge is used to literally “bridge” or close the gap caused by these missing teeth. A bridge is attached to the remaining natural teeth on either side of the gap and spans along the gab to improve the function and appearance of your smile.
Benefits of Bridges
- Restore the aesthetic appearance of your smile
- Restore the ability to chew
- Restore the ability to speak properly
- Maintain the shape of your face and facial muscles
- Prevent remaining natural teeth from shifting
