Riverdale Dental in Toronto offers dental bridges - a great dental treatment for patients who 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 firmly in place by your own teeth on each side of the missing one(s) or by dental implants. It is permanently 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 creating a beautiful smile. Achieving a natural looking and realistic smile after tooth loss is possible with dental bridges!
The benefits of a fixed dental bridge include:
- the physical improvements in the appearance of your smile
- improvements in mouth mobility for chewing and speaking
- preventing teeth from shifting out of place
