Correct your smile with dental bridges today


shutterstock_25133572Let’s face it; there’s nothing worse than tooth loss. But, with corrective dental bridges, you can restore your smile and your confidence.

When tooth loss occurs, the surrounding teeth can often shift out of alignment which may cause a change in your bite, loss of additional teeth, decay, or gum disease. Fortunately, the placement of a dental bridge can help you avoid these situations.

How Do Dental Bridges Work?

A dental bridge is one or more replacement teeth anchored by crowns on either side. These teeth are permanently cemented to your existing teeth and look just like real teeth.

When a dental bridge is needed, your dentist will prepare the surrounding teeth by reshaping them to receive a dental crown. After a complete impression is made of the entire area, a temporary bridge is put in place while your permanent bridge is created.
