If you have one or multiple teeth missing, a dental bridge also called a tooth bridge, can cover the gap to improve your appearance. Dental bridge cost is more affordable than other restoration options such as implants. Dr. Khabensky, DDS, is one of 2018 America’s best dentists who provide the best quality dental bridges such as traditional porcelain fused and implant-supported options for your missing teeth.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
If you have a gap in your teeth, a dental bridge may be right for you. This gap may be due to injury, decay, or disease. A dental bridge uses the teeth adjacent to the gap for support. These teeth are substantially reshaped and are covered with dental crowns.
The dental crowns are attached to the replacement tooth. If you have several side-by-side teeth missing, a dental bridge covers the gap. The bridge is permanently cemented onto the adjacent teeth (abutment), and the replacement tooth is shaped to look exactly like a real tooth, resting on the gums.
Dental tooth bridges cover the gap from a partial tooth loss of one or more natural teeth. Two or more crowns on either side of the gap hold the bridge in place. If the abutment teeth are already decayed or stained and would benefit from being covered up with dental crowns.
Dr. Khabensky, our cosmetic dentistry expert, uses this technique if the gap covers the entire side of your mouth. If your natural teeth aren’t strong enough to sustain a tooth bridge, implants may be used instead.
Why Should I Get a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge restores your ability to eat and speak. The result is a natural and younger-looking appearance. A tooth bridge restores the lost tooth structure. It eliminates the unsightly and uncomfortable movement of your other tooth. Advantages of dental bridges provided by the top-rated dentists:
