How does a dental bridge work?

At the dental office of the highly esteemed Dr. Helma Philips, we use only the finest materials to deliver the most ideal outcomes. Ultimately, we want you to enjoy a fully functional and attractive smile you love. 

Modern Dental Bridges of the Highest Quality

A dental bridge may be a viable solution for those who wish to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge fills in the gap between teeth with one or more realistic prosthetic teeth called pontics. 

To anchor the bridge in place, your dentist places two dental crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap. These supporting teeth can be your natural teeth or dental implants. The crowns are cemented into place using a safe and durable dental adhesive. 

Common Concerns a Dental Bridge Can Correct

Tooth loss can lead to numerous dental health concerns, and remaining teeth can shift into the empty spaces left behind. 

A dental bridge can restore the following dental concerns:

  • Difficulties chewing and biting food
  • Problems speaking clearly or comfortably
  • Extra stress and pressure on the teeth and jaws 

Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your smile and how you speak or interact with others. 

Dr. Philips creates beautiful and sturdy dental bridges that can revive your oral health and reestablish your bite. 

If you have one or several missing teeth, our knowledgeable and skilled team can help you find the best treatment for your needs.
