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.
