For a patient who is missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Robert Jackson may recommend a dental bridge in Carrollton, Texas, to restore the smile. A dental bridge is made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown on either side. The crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the dental bridge.
Dental bridges can do many things for an individual’s smile, including:
– Restore the appearance and functionality of the smile
– Maintain the face shape
– Restore the ability to eat and speak properly
– Properly distribute the bite by replacing a missing tooth or teeth
– Keep the remaining teeth from shifting out of place
Before placing a dental bridge, our dentist will shape the teeth surrounding the missing tooth to allow room for the restoration. Impressions of the teeth are made so that the dental bridge can be constructed specifically for the individual’s smile. Once the bridge is complete, the fit and color will be checked and adjusted as needed. Then the bridge will be cemented into place.
