If you are missing one or several teeth, our caring dentists will help you determine the best choice for tooth replacement. One tooth replacement option we offer at Sierra Vista Dental is a dental bridge. Bridges are used to replace either one missing tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. There are a few different types of dental bridges, which are used depending on the location of the missing tooth and on your personal needs. The most common type of dental bridge in Sierra Vista, Arizona is the traditional fixed bridge, which is composed of two dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth. The crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap in order to anchor and support the artificial replacement tooth. When in place, the bridge can restore your smile by:
- Preventing the remaining teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Relieving stress on the bite
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
- Restoring your ability to eat, speak, and chew as normal
- Improving the volume and shape of your face
Dental bridges are designed to look and function just like your natural teeth. For more information and to schedule your visit with Drs. Leavitt and Evans, we welcome you to contact us today.
