What are dental bridges?
A bridge is a non-removable dental restoration that can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth in a row. Most often, the dental bridge is fixed in place by attaching two dental crowns to the neighboring natural teeth. The pontic tooth, or artificial tooth, is attached to the two crowns that hold it in place. The dental bridges that Dr. Feldman creates are carefully constructed to match your existing teeth and give you a beautiful smile. For your convenience, dental bridges can be completed in as little as two visits to our office.
Do I need a dental bridge?
Dr. Feldman might suggest that a dental bridge is a good option for you if you are missing one or more teeth. A dental bridge can restore your smile by:
- Restoring your ability to talk and eat normally
- Alleviating stress on your bite
- Improving the shape and volume of your face
- Preventing the remaining teeth from shifting
- Improving the aesthetics of your smile
When you have a missing tooth, our knowledgeable dentist will help you determine if a dental bridge is a good option for you. Please contact or visit our office today for more information about dental bridges in Washington, District Of Columbia.
