Dental Bridges in Toronto
Riverdale Dental in Toronto offers dental bridges - a dental treatment for patients who might need durability, protection, and less invasive improvements to the appearance of their smile.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a dental restoration designed to replace one or more missing teeth. It extends across an area that has no teeth and is typically made up of an artificial tooth fused between 2 crowns. (A crown is a hollow, artificial tooth that fits over a natural tooth or a dental implant.)
The bridge is held in place by your own teeth on each side of the missing one(s) or by dental implants. It is cemented to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth. The bridge is fit to match in size, colour and shape of your natural teeth. Achieving a natural-looking and realistic smile after tooth loss can be possible with dental bridges!
The benefits of a fixed dental bridge include:
- the possible physical improvements in the appearance of your smile
- can improve mouth mobility for chewing and speaking
- can prevent teeth from shifting out of place
