Some of us have gaps in our teeth that make it difficult to eat and to smile without getting embarrassed, whether that’s from tooth loss or an extraction. Dental bridges can help you achieve a more aesthetically pleasing smile, while also making it easier to effectively eat food. But, what is a dental bridge?
When teeth are missing and there are teeth on either side of the space, a bridge is the ideal way to replace the missing teeth. When there has been the loss of a tooth or teeth and there is a tooth on either side of the open space, replacement teeth can be attached to two crowns constructed for the two teeth on either side of the open space. This is called a bridge because it bridges open the space. In this video, a dental assistant explains dental bridges, while showing you what they would look like. Watch the full video to learn more about what bridges can do for your smile.
