When it comes to dental restoration options for multiple missing teeth, the most common choices are a dental bridge and dentures. We are happy to discuss the benefits of a dental bridge to replace several lost teeth when the majority of your smile is healthy.
When differentiating between dental bridges and dentures, it’s important to take note that severe tooth loss often requires dentures, while a large tooth gap may be sufficient for dental bridges if you have remaining healthy teeth. Dentures are designed to be removable, but a dental bridge is often attached to the neighboring teeth in your smile. To determine which restoration is best for your dental needs, our dentists and team can provide a professional recommendation.
Dental bridges can effectively restore lost and badly damaged teeth, offering effective tooth replacement by using dental materials that can mimic the shape, color and size of your other teeth. If you would like to once again be able to speak and chew comfortably, you can receive a dental bridge that only requires your daily oral care habits and routine dental checkups to keep it in good shape for many years to come.
