Bridges

A dental bridge is a non-removable dental appliance used to replace a missing tooth (or missing teeth). A bridge can be used to accomplish the following:

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Prevent the teeth from shifting
  • Restore the function of the bite
  • Retain your face’s natural shape
  • Replace a partial denture
  • Promote a natural, radiant smile

Dental bridges comprise two crowns which go over the teeth, adjacent to the gap. We call these abutment teeth. Between the dental crowns, we place an artificial tooth, known as a pontic. This tooth will look and function like a natural tooth. Best of all, when you smile, no one will know you have a dental appliance! Please call Leestown Dental Center to schedule a dental appointment if you are interested in receiving a dental bridge treatment.
