What are dental bridges?

A dental bridge is a permanent dental appliance used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are sometime called fixed bridges. A bridge gets its name from the way it works; a dental bridge literally bridges the space left by a lost tooth. There are different dental bridges available, depending on which teeth you have lost. Generally, dental bridges are most useful for replacing a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row. Dr. Saigh will determine what kind of dental bridge is best for your smile after a thorough examination and consultation.

How are dental bridges made?

Traditionally, a dental bridge uses two dental crowns to anchor a replacement tooth in place. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. Your custom-made dental bridge in Iron River, Michigan, will be checked and fitted to ensure quality and comfort. After we make any final adjustments, the dental bridge is cemented into place.
