Dental bridges are like mini miracles for toothless smiles. Although hope may seem lost when you lose a single tooth or more, it is actually just a minor setback. The last of your permanent teeth grow in when you are in your mid-teens, but thanks to modern technology, artificial replacements that look and function nearly identical to natural teeth can now be implemented.
If you do suffer an oral accident that has left you with the need for an artificial replacement, our wonderful team can help. With dental bridges, we can restore your smile to a level of satisfaction that can boost your self-esteem and return your oral health to normal.
Dental bridges work by directly connecting to nearby and neighboring teeth in your mouth. The bridge can be adjusted, fitted, and designed to fit comfortably in the void left behind by a missing tooth, or in some cases, missing teeth. Unlike dental implants, dental bridges do not need to be drilled into your jaw. With an optimum amount of care, dental bridges can last anywhere from a decade up to an entire lifetime. If damaged, they can be easily repaired or replaced.
