When you have a missing tooth, it can change the appearance of your smile. Many people hide their teeth and feel embarrassed when they lose a tooth. Dental bridges are an excellent cosmetic dentistry treatment to replace a missing tooth and restore your beautiful smile. Get back your confident smile with dental bridges from Taylor Dental & Implant Center in Oklahoma City.
Dental bridges span the gap of missing teeth. The “bridge” is a metal framework that attaches to the teeth on either side of a missing tooth. It is hidden behind the teeth and out of sight. To attach the bridgework, dental crowns can be placed on the teeth to support the artificial tooth, called a pontic. While it is possible to use your existing teeth to anchor a prosthetic tooth or teeth in place, our office is also equipped to use implant dentistry. This means that two or more dental implants can be used as a bridge to replace several missing teeth. In either case, your bridge is permanent and will stay in place, giving you optimal function and an aesthetically pleasing smile.
