A dental bridge is a permanent dental appliance designed to fill the gaps in your smile. Our dentist may recommend a bridge to even the pressure on your bite, restore your ability to chew and speak, and improve your overall comfort. At Bull City Dental, Dr. Audrey Kemp can shape your bridge to match the color, tone, and size of your existing smile. If you are interested in a dental bridge in Durham, North Carolina, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our dentist today.
If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete the dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.
Our dentist may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:
Restoring your ability to speak, eat, and chew as normal
Alleviating excess stress on the bite
Improving the shape and volume of your face
Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
Enhancing the appearance of your smile
We will help you determine whether a custom dental bridge is the right choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss. For more information, please call or visit us today.
