If you are missing one or more teeth, the best solution may be to fill the gap with a dental bridge. Our experienced team at Westbrook Dental is able to provide the care you need when you are ready to repair a gap due to a missing tooth with dental bridges near Old Lyme, 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 can be a great way to restore your smile without having to undergo a more invasive procedure.
Sometimes referred to as a “fixed partial denture,” a dental bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges are made from gold, alloys, porcelain – or a combination of materials – to match your natural teeth. 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 moving out of position, which can cause other unwanted dental problems. In addition, a dental bridge will enhance your ability to speak and chew normally. If you have a missing tooth, our cosmetic dentist can replace the gap with a dental bridge.
