If you have lost one tooth or a couple of teeth in a row, our dentist may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed (non-removable) tooth replacement option that is composed of two dental crowns and one or more prosthetic teeth, which are called pontics. The pontics are supported by the crowns, which are placed on the neighboring natural teeth (referred to as abutment teeth). Because the bridge is anchored in place by the abutment teeth, you can rest assured that your restoration will be very stable and will not easily shift or come loose in your mouth. Dental bridges are also natural-looking restorations because they are created from molds and impressions of your natural teeth. A bridge is a great choice for a natural-looking, secure tooth replacement.
Dr. Lois Lee may suggest a dental bridge in Lynnwood, Washington, to improve your smile by:
• Alleviating uneven stress and pressure on the bite
• Preventing the natural teeth from shifting
• Restoring the volume and shape of your face
• Improving the appearance of your smile
• Restoring your ability to speak and eat as normal
