A Cost-Effective Tooth Replacement Option
Dental bridges fill the gaps that remain following tooth loss. A bridge also helps prevent your surrounding teeth from shifting and causing further problems.
A fixed-option for tooth replacement
Your dental bridge is typically held in place by two dental crowns. This creates a solid, supportive new tooth structure.
Dental bridges can last five to 15 years and even longer. With good oral hygiene and regular checkups, it is not unusual for the life span of a fixed bridge to be over 10 years.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
Dental bridges restore your tooth function. They also improve your appearance when you’ve experienced tooth loss, tooth damage, or dental trauma.
Additionally, Bridges can:
- Restore your smile
- Improve your ability to properly chew and speak
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
- Support remaining teeth
