Getting Your Smile Back with Dental Bridges

Benefits of Dental Bridges

If you have lost one or more teeth, you have likely noticed a negative effect on the function, appearance, and health of your smile. It may be more difficult to speak, chew, and eat as normal, and you may feel embarrassed about your smile because of the gaps left by missing teeth. To replace your missing teeth and restore your smile and self-confidence, our dentist may recommend a dental bridge. A bridge is used to replace one missing tooth or a couple of missing teeth in a row. When in place, a bridge can improve your smile by:

  • Restoring the natural shape and volume of your face
  • Improving your ability to properly chew, speak, and eat
  • Enhancing the beauty of your smile
  • Preventing the remaining teeth from moving into the space left by the missing teeth
  • Relieving uneven stress on the bite
  • Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture

Each dental bridge in Eagle, Idaho, is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically. A bridge is made up of one or more artificial teeth, called pontics, and two dental crowns. Dr. Shane S. Porter attaches the crowns to the neighboring teeth to anchor the pontics in place, ensuring that the bridge is secure and stable. To learn more about bridges and our other tooth replacement options, we welcome you to call or visit us today at Premier Dentistry of Eagle.
