Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. A dental bridge is a type of dental restoration that can improve the function, health, and appearance of your smile. Bridges are designed to look and function like natural teeth; a dental crown is attached to either side of the artificial teeth in order to support the replacement teeth. Dental bridges are stable and non-removable; they are generally considered a more secure tooth replacement than a partial denture. Dr. Charles Boettcher, your talented dentist, may recommend a dental bridge in order to:
- Enhance the beauty of your smile
- Improve facial volume and shape
- Alleviate stress on the bite
- Restore your ability to chew, speak, and eat as usual
- Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting in the mouth
