Missing teeth is more common than you think. In fact, 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth. Injury, gum disease, or even tooth decay can all be causes of tooth loss. Luckily, dental bridges are effective and long-term solutions for replacing missing teeth. Some of the many benefits of dental bridges include:
Repairs your smile
Easier to chew properly
Maintains your facial structure
Helps properly distribute the force of your bite
Prevents surrounding teeth from shifting
What is a Dental Bridge?
So what exactly is a dental bridge? On either side of the gap of your missing tooth are dental crowns that act as anchors. The false tooth is placed in-between the crowns and in the missing space. This false tooth is generally referred to as pontic and can be made of porcelain, alloys, gold, or a combination of all of the above. The results are a full and beautiful smile!
