What is a dental bridge?
A typical dental bridge is made up of two dental crowns that are anchored to your natural teeth or dental implants on either side of the gap left by the missing teeth. False teeth are attached between these crowns.
What are the advantages of a dental bridge?
When Dr. Glenn Edens examines your teeth, he may determine that a dental bridge is an excellent option for restoring your smile. Bridges offer the following benefits:
- Restore the attractiveness of your smile
- Restore your chewing and speaking ability
- Restore your facial structure
- Prevent your remaining teeth from shifting
- Restore the proper distribution of pressure on your bite
Dental bridges can usually be inserted in just two comfortable visits to our dental office. A beautiful smile is achievable in just a matter of weeks.
How long does a dental bridge last?
With proper care, it is not uncommon for dental bridges to last 15 years or longer. You should treat your dental bridge as you would normal teeth, brushing and flossing twice a day.
