A dental bridge can be used to restore your smile back to its optimal appearance and function. A dental bridge is a permanent, fixed structure that is used to restore one or more of your missing teeth. Dental bridges do not slide in your mouth, which allows for greater comfort when speaking or chewing. Our team may recommend a dental bridge for many reasons, including:
- To improve the appearance of your smile
- To prevent natural teeth from shifting
- To spread pressure on a bite
- To complete your smile by replacing missing teeth
- To enhance your ability to chew, eat, and speak properly
A dental bridge consists of at least two anchors. Depending on your situation, our dentists, Drs. Farmer and Farmer, may use an implant or a crown to act as your anchor. In between your anchors will also be at least one pontic. A pontic is a partial tooth that can be made to match the shape and color of your natural tooth.
