Missing teeth can make your life more difficult – from chewing and speaking, and compounded issues over time. Missing teeth can lead to gum disease and an altered bite that can cause TMJ issues. But you don’t have to live with missing teeth. SmileCare Dental has many options for correcting your smile, including dental bridges.
Bridges are a great way to correct a gap caused by a missing tooth or teeth. Dr. Kay will recommend what she thinks is best to ensure you have the healthiest smile possible.
Bridges connect the gap where the missing tooth or teeth used to be. They are cemented to the teeth adjacent, using these teeth as anchors for the bridge. We will shape and prepare the adjacent teeth and cap them with a crown, and then attach the replacement tooth or teeth to form a bridge.
