If you are missing one or multiple teeth, your diet, self-confidence, speech, and bone health can be negatively impacted.
But what is a dental bridge?
Dr. Scott Bridges uses an artificial tooth known as a pontic to cover the space in your smile. We attach the pontic to two dental crowns placed on the neighboring teeth directly on either side of the missing tooth.
This dental treatment is an elegant solution for an incomplete smile.
Don't Be Afraid to Show Your Smile
A hole in your smile can be very embarrassing, not to mention how it can affect daily functions like speaking and eating.
When one or more teeth are gone, people tend to chew and bite down on the other side of the gap, which is never ideal. Many people may not realize that nearby teeth will shift towards the gap over time. This misaligns your bite and leads to additional tooth loss.
Restoring your tooth with custom-fabricated dental prosthetics allows you to enjoy your food without worry and to laugh without concern.
