Bridges

A bridge to a new you

If you’re living with a gap in your smile, it can have a serious impact – not only for the appearance of your smile and your self-esteem, but your oral health could take a toll as well. Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge allows patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again!

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
