If you have lost one or more teeth, we encourage you to contact our dentist at Artistry Dental to discuss your options for tooth replacement. We are pleased to offer several options for replacing missing teeth, including dental bridges. A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) restoration comprised of two dental crowns and an artificial replacement tooth. Our dentist places the crowns on the natural teeth or dental implants adjacent to the gap left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth, known as a pontic, in the place of the missing tooth. Because the dental bridge is anchored in place by the crowns, it is very secure and feels similar to your natural teeth. Dr. Francisco Kim may recommend a dental bridge in Anaheim, California, as a good option for your smile if you are interested in:
- Restoring your ability to properly chew, speak, and eat
- Preventing the remaining natural teeth from drifting out of their proper positions
- Enhancing the overall appearance of your smile
- Relieving excess stress on the bite
Your bridge can be created from natural-looking materials, like porcelain, to ensure your smile looks beautifully natural. For more information about bridges and how we can restore your smile after tooth loss, please contact us today.
