If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge may be the best solution to fill the gap. Westbrook Dental is able to provide the care you need when you are ready repair a gap due to missing teeth with dental bridges near Guilford, CT. The two teeth on each side of the gap act as anchors, with dental crowns (aka caps) placed on each to hold your new artificial tooth or teeth in place. Dental bridges are the perfect option to complete your smile without having to undergo a more invasive treatment.
Also referred to as a “fixed partial denture,” a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges can be made from alloys, gold, and porcelain – or a combination of these materials – to match your natural teeth in color and shape. A fixed bridge is attached to surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, a fixed bridge must be removed by a dentist.
A bridge prevents your remaining teeth from shifting out of place, which can cause other dental problems. In addition, a dental bridge enhances your ability to speak and chew normally. If you have a missing tooth, our cosmetic dentist can replace the gap with a dental bridge.
