Bridges are fixed dental restorations used to replace one or more missing teeth. Composed of two dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth, dental bridges are supported by the teeth or dental implants adjacent to the gap. Your experienced dentists place the dental crowns on the neighboring teeth to anchor the artificial replacement teeth. A bridge can improve your smile by:
- Preventing other teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Improving your ability to speak, eat, and chew
- Restoring lost facial volume
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
Your custom dental bridge can be placed in just two painless, enjoyable visits to Durham Dentistry. We invite you to call or visit our dental office in Durham, North Carolina today to learn more about the benefits of dental bridges.
