What Is a Dental Bridge?

Similar to dental crowns, a dental bridge is an appliance that is used to replace a lost permanent tooth and preserve the spacing of the remaining healthy teeth. It consists of two crowns that anchor to the natural teeth with one or more free-standing replacement teeth in the middle to bridge the gap. Dental bridges are created in the same way as crowns. For dental bridges, two teeth are altered to accommodate the appliance, impressions are taken to include these teeth, and two temporary crowns are placed. When the bridge’s fabrication is completed, you return to our office to have this single strong piece restore your smile’s function and beauty.

Signs You May Need a Dental Bridge

Fortunately, you can prevent that from happening by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Hammond to discuss your tooth replacement options.
