What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a restoration used to bridge the gap left by one or more missing teeth. If you are missing one tooth or several teeth in a row, our experienced dentist may suggest a dental bridge to restore your smile. Dental bridges are very secure restorations; the replacement tooth is anchored to the adjacent teeth or dental implants through the use of two dental crowns. Unlike removable dentures, dental bridges are fixed (non-removable) and will not come loose or shift in your mouth. When in place, a dental bridge can improve the appearance, function, and health of your smile. Your dental bridge in Whitehall, Montana will be custom made to perfectly fit your smile and bite. Because bridges are created to look just like your natural teeth and are often made from tooth-colored materials, like porcelain, you can feel certain that your bridge will look natural and beautiful.

How can a dental bridge benefit my smile?

Bridges have many benefits. Dr. Dennis Sacry may recommend a dental bridge to:

  • Alleviate stress on the bite
  • Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting
  • Improve the function of your smile in eating and speaking
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile and the shape of your face
