Q: What are dental bridges?
A: Dental bridges are restorations that are made of two dental crowns and one or more false teeth. The dental crowns are on both sides of the restoration while the false teeth lie in the middle. The bridge looks just like natural teeth.
Q: How do dental bridges stay in the mouth?
A: The dental crowns on both sides anchor to the remaining natural teeth in the smile. Your dentist will trim the surrounding teeth and the crowns will fit perfectly over them.
Q: What can dental bridges do for me?
A: Bridges can restore the smile, give you the ability to properly chew and speak, maintain the shape of your face, give you the force you need in your bite, beautify your smile and more.
