A Bridge to a Beautiful Smile
When one or more teeth are missing, an option for correcting the problem is to create a bridge consisting of dental crowns to join several teeth together. A dental bridge, also known as a fixed dental partial, not only fills the space, it also helps restore your smile.
Having a dental bridge to replace missing teeth feature many benefits, including:
- Help keep your remaining teeth from shifting out of position
- Restore your ability to chew your food properly
- Help you speak more correctly
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Help retain your natural bite
Dental bridges are secured in place by your natural teeth, a dental crown or dental implants. They can be made of entirely tooth-colored porcelain, gold, or a combination to provide the best results. Depending on where in the mouth the dental bridge will be located, Doctors DuPont and Wilkerson will select a material that is most appropriate for looks as well as durability.
With our skill and attention to detail, our dental bridges have a long history of success and, with proper care and maintenance, offer a solution that can last a lifetime.
