A complete and beautiful smile is a source of pride and helps you put your best foot forward in every interaction. On the other hand, missing teeth not only present several dental health issues, but it can also harm your confidence and self-esteem. Sopris Smiles has the answer you need if you have lost multiple teeth. Get in touch with our office today and ask about our high-quality dental bridges!
Dental bridges are restorative dental prosthetics that look and function like your natural teeth. They are called bridges because they are typically comprised of multiple prosthetic teeth and can be used in areas where there are one or more missing teeth – effectively “bridging” the gap in your smile.
You can think of bridges as small-scale dentures used in instances where there are healthy remaining teeth. The bridge itself is made out of crowns (false, hollow teeth that mimic natural teeth) and a pontic, which is the part of the bridge that will be covering the gap in your smile. The crowns work like anchors and are adjusted over existing healthy teeth or dental implants in instances in which there are no teeth to support the bridge.
Then it’s time to restore your smile! The experts at Sopris Smiles are excited to help you regain the joy of sharing your beautiful smile with the world. Call us today to get started!
