A fixed dental bridge is a non-removable appliance that is custom-made to replace one or more of your missing teeth. Not only can our dentist, Dr. Justin Bauer, use a bridge to fill the gaps between your teeth, but he can also restore function to the bite and give you a complete and beautiful smile once again. If you are interested in receiving a fixed dental bridge in Brigham City, Utah, or in learning more about our general and family dentistry, we invite you to call Bear River Family Dental at 435-723-6120.
If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete a dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.
Our dentist may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:
- Restoring your ability to speak, eat, and chew normally
- Alleviating excess stress on the bite
- Improving the shape and volume of your face
- Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
- Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
We will help you determine whether a custom dental bridge is the right choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss. For more information, please call or visit us today.
