What Is a Dental Bridge and How Do I Know If I Need One?

A dental bridge “bridges” the space that is left by a missing tooth (or teeth). 

A dental bridge utilizes two dental crowns that cap the neighboring teeth to the gap—these are known as abutment teeth—and an artificial tooth is cemented in between them. A dental bridge can either be held up by natural teeth or dental implants. 

How You Can Benefit from Dental Bridges

When you are missing one or multiple teeth, you may find that it impacts many aspects of your life. Saint Paul patients appreciate the many benefits dental bridges have to offer, including:

  • Enhancing and restoring your smile
  • Restoring chewing and biting ability
  • Allows for precise and list-free speech
  • Prevents facial sagging from missing teeth
  • Distributes your bite evenly 
  • Prevents teeth from shifting

Our highly skilled dentist will ensure that your bridge looks completely natural and blends in with the rest of your existing teeth. No one will ever suspect that you’re wearing a dental prosthetic. 

How Do I Know I Need a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges help restore one or more missing teeth. If you have had a tooth extracted or suffer from tooth loss, you may be a candidate for dental bridges. The best way to determine if you need a dental bridge is by talking to your Saint Paul dentist at Highgrove Dental Care. With proper care, you can enjoy your dental investment for years. 

If you are ready to restore your smile and ability to eat your favorite foods, then please give our dental office a call today to talk about your options. Don’t live with missing teeth; you can have the smile you want. Dental bridges are a popular option to enhance your smile and completed in two dental office visits.
