How Dental Bridges Replace Missing Teeth With A Fixed Restoration

If you need to replace a missing tooth or even several teeth, you may be unsure about the options available at Gentle Dentistry of Columbus. Drs. Devon Paris, Laura Watterson, and Brett Page work routinely with patients in the Columbus, Georgia, area who need restorations to fix their smile’s function, health, and beauty. Dental bridges are one of several solutions available for tooth replacement and continue to be an affordable and reliable fixed option for patients with and without dental insurance. Let’s look at dental bridges and what makes them a desirable choice for many of our patients.

How does a dental bridge replace missing teeth?

If you are considering fixed dental bridges, you may have questions about how they work. This particular tooth replacement option is designed to replace one or more natural teeth in a row. The bridge itself is a combination of dental crowns on each side fused to politics, or false teeth, in between that restore the appearance and function of the smile. The dental bridge is bonded over the adjacent teeth to create a final restoration that blends in with the patient’s smile while allowing them to speak clearly and eat efficiently.

What are the advantages of dental bridges?

As with many tooth replacement options, there are always pros and cons to consider when making the right choice for your smile and current situation. Patients who choose dental bridges often choose them because they are a fixed restoration that is easy to care for. They are also fabricated to match the existing teeth, so they appear natural and blend in with the natural teeth. Dental bridges are reliable, affordable, and effective at allowing patients to speak, eat, and smile confidently.
