What are dental bridges?

Bridges are non-removable (fixed) dental restorations used to replace missing teeth. Most often used to replace either one missing tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row, a dental bridge can restore the health, function, and appearance of your smile. Our dental bridges in Kimball, Michigan, are designed to look and function just like natural teeth in order to effectively restore your smile. Each dental bridge is composed of one or more artificial teeth and two dental crowns. Your skilled dentists will place the dental crowns on the teeth or dental implants adjacent to the gap; this anchors the bridge and ensures that it is stable. Your dental bridge can only be removed by your dentist.

Do I need a dental bridge?

If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Batra may recommend a dental bridge. Bridges are often considered a superior tooth replacement choice to partial dentures because, unlike partial dentures, dental bridges are not removable and are more stable. In addition to restoring your smile’s beauty and function, a bridge can alleviate stress on the bite and prevent the remaining natural teeth from shifting in the mouth.
