Having a missing tooth or several missing teeth together not only makes it difficult to chew properly, but it can also be embarrassing. Dr. Dipika Shah believes in giving you a smile that makes you feel confident. Dental bridges allow us to do that by filling in the gaps with an artificial tooth that looks natural with the rest of your teeth.

The dental bridge lets you fill in missing spaces in your mouth with artificial teeth, as an alternative to getting an implant. The bridge created a crown for the two adjacent teeth and has an artificial tooth where you are missing one. It creates a bridge that doesn’t look obvious to anyone else and offers you a beautiful smile.

Types of Bridges:

  • Traditional bridge – The most common type of bridge includes an artificial tooth in between two adjacent teeth, covered in crowns.

  • Cantilever bridge – This type of bridge has an artificial tooth next to the adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth.

There are many benefits to getting bridges, including being able to speak and chew properly, improving the shape of your face, preventing your teeth from shifting as a result of the missing tooth or teeth, and filling in gaps.
