A dental bridge is a durable dental appliance made of two or more artificial teeth that fill the space where teeth are missing. Dental bridges connect to your existing teeth on either side of the area or to dental implants. Dental implants are an option if you want a more secure dental bridge. Bridges for teeth are customized to blend in with your natural teeth’s shape, size, and shade.
Since dental bridges and dental crowns can restore teeth, you may consider both options. However, dental bridges and crowns serve different purposes. If you have one or more teeth missing due to trauma or extraction, a bridge is a great option to replace teeth and restore your full ability to speak, bite, and eat comfortably. If you have a single damaged tooth that does not need to be extracted, a dental crown may be more fitting. Dr. Keys and our team at Artistic Dentistry can help you figure out which is the best option for you!
Dental bridges can be crafted out of metals and porcelain or ceramics. On average, bridges for teeth last up to ten years. While these materials can create durable dental appliances, dental bridges still require good oral care. Care for dental bridges includes brushing and flossing daily and attending routine dental exams and cleanings. During your appointment, you’ll receive all the information you need to care for your new smile!
