Are you missing teeth? Are you embarrassed to smile? Are you unable to eat or speak properly because of lost teeth? Then a dental bridge may be the right option for you. A dental bridge is a fixed dental appliance that is used to replace missing teeth by bridging the gap between a lost tooth and the teeth that remain. Our expert dentist, Dr. Marvin Herschfus, may suggest a dental bridge to:
- Replace one or more missing teeth
- Enhance the beauty of your smile
- Restore lost facial shape and volume
- Improve your ability to chew, speak, and swallow
The type of dental bridge we use for your smile will depend on which teeth are missing. We will perform a thorough examination before moving forward with your dental bridge. A traditional dental bridge, and the most common type offer in our dental office, is made of two crowns and a high-quality replacement tooth called a pontic. We place the dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the empty gap to anchor the pontic in place. Dental bridges in Berkley, Michigan are created to be long lasting and beautiful. If you would like more information about the benefits of dental bridges, please call or visit our dental office. Our dental team is excited to help restore your beautiful smile!
