A dental bridge is a precision-made appliance that is glued over a tooth or implant to fully cover it and repair a gap. It is an artificial tooth that looks and functions much like a real one.
At Zen Dental, our dentists have the expertise and knowledge to provide the sophisticated dental methods required to construct bridges that assist teeth functioning correctly. If they are cared for and maintained properly, dental bridges can endure for many years.
Dental bridges help restore your ability to bite and chew properly, which can improve your overall nutrition and health.
Bridges can fill the gap left by missing teeth, enhancing your smile and overall appearance. They are designed to look natural and blend with your existing teeth.
Missing teeth can affect your speech. Bridges can help improve pronunciation and speech clarity.
When a tooth is lost, nearby teeth may shift or tilt into the empty space, leading to misalignment. Bridges prevent this by filling the gap and maintaining proper tooth alignment.
A bridge can help distribute bite forces evenly across your remaining natural teeth, reducing the risk of excessive wear and tear on adjacent teeth.
Bridges are custom-made to fit your mouth comfortably, allowing you to speak and eat without discomfort.
With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can be a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth.
It’s important to note that while dental bridges offer these benefits, they may not be suitable for everyone.
Our dentists will assess your specific oral health needs and discuss the most appropriate tooth replacement options for your situation, which could include bridges, implants, or removable dentures.
There are, in fact, many distinct kinds of bridges, each of which is secured uniquely. Your dentist will choose the safest and most reliable bridge option for your unique circumstances based on their findings.
