A dental bridge is a restoration used to bridge the gap left by one or more missing teeth. A traditional bridge is composed of one or more prosthetic teeth (called pontics) and two dental crowns. The crowns are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the gap to ensure that your bridge is stable and secure. If needed, the neighboring teeth will be prepared to receive the crown to ensure that your smile looks natural and functions as normal. Dr. McConnell and Dr. Bui may suggest a dental bridge in Beavercreek, Ohio to improve your smile by:
- Preventing the remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Restoring the shape and volume of your face and jaw line
- Alleviating uneven stress on the bite
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Preventing the loss of more teeth
- Improving your ability to speak, eat, and chew as usual
