If you are looking for a non-removable tooth replacement, our experienced dentist may recommend a bridge. A dental bridge is a fixed restoration, meaning that is non-removable. Dental bridges can be used to replace either one missing tooth or several teeth that are missing in a row. To anchor the bridge, Dr. James Rotilie, DDS will attach two dental crowns to the teeth adjacent to the gap. These crowns support the artificial replacement tooth, which is called a pontic. Dental bridges are very secure and stable. When in place, a bridge can improve your smile by:
- Preventing the remaining natural teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Improving your facial volume and shape
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
- Restoring your ability to chew, eat, and speak as usual
- Alleviating stress on the bite
Your dental bridge in Warren, Ohio will be custom made to fit your smile and to blend in with your natural teeth. Dental bridges can be made from porcelain to ensure that your restoration is natural looking and beautiful.
