A dental bridge, on the other hand, is a kind of prosthetic we can use to replace a single missing tooth or a few in a row. It consists of a prosthetic tooth or teeth that are supported by neighboring crowns.
To get one, two crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap in a patient’s smile, and the new teeth are bonded directly to them. This not only helps the appearance of the smile, but it also ensures that the bite is evenly distributed, plus it prevents the other teeth from shifting out of place (which happens often after tooth loss).
With crowns and bridges, we can turn back the clock and make it seem like nothing bad ever happened to your smile. To learn more about them or schedule an appointment, contact us today.
