What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a restorative appliance that consists of one or more fabricated teeth made out of a natural looking tooth colored porcelain. Our bridges are fitted and crafted with high precision technology to ensure a perfect, seamless fit. There are several types of bridges – which is right for you will be determined in a consultation with your Cornelius dentist.
Your bridge can be permanent or fixed – secured to surrounding teeth using dental crowns. This is the most secure type of bridge.
Bridges can also be removable – secured to surrounding teeth using tiny metal clasps.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits to replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge. Benefits range from functional, to cosmetic, to health:
- Fill the gap for a beautiful, natural looking, complete smile
- Enjoy your favorite foods again
- Speak & smile with confidence
- Prevent surrounding teeth from shifting or rotating
- Preserve oral health & bite
- Secure, durable, & long-lasting
