A bridge is a non-removable, fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. Because they are fixed, dental bridges are a secure tooth replacement option, and they are more stable than partial dentures. A dental bridge consists of two dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth. Your gentle dentists, Drs. Dudley, Condon, and Golisano, will place the dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap to anchor the artificial teeth. Bridges can effectively replace just one missing tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. Each dental bridge is custom made to ensure that it fits your bite comfortably and effectively restores the health, function, and beauty of your smile. When in place, the dental bridge can improve your smile by:
- Preventing the remaining teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
- Alleviating stress on the bite
- Improving your ability to speak, eat, and chew as normal
- Restoring lost facial volume
