Dental bridges are a non-removable solution to many cosmetic and health problems that can occur in your mouth. Dr. Jayson C. Haws may recommend a dental bridge in Brigham City, Utah, to:
- Fill the spaces of missing teeth
- Maintain facial structure
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
- Restore your smile
- Upgrade a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance
There are a variety of different bridges. Consulting with our dentist is necessary for deciding which option fits your particular circumstance. The most commonly used dental bridge is the porcelain fixed bridge because it resembles your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of two different crowns that are placed on two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth). The crowns are attached to the pontics (artificial teeth), that fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Bridges are made durable and strong. They are expected to last many years and provide you with a complete and functioning mouth and smile.
