Missing teeth can lead to problems with your appearance and self-confidence, but they can also leave extra places for plaque to accumulate and allow your remaining teeth to drift out of their proper positions slowly. If you need to replace a single tooth, or two or more teeth adjacent to one another, Dr. Kelly Halle-Brown can fill in that space in your smile with a dental bridge in Quakertown, PA. Dental bridges restore the smile’s look and function with false, tooth-colored replacement teeth.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?
If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom-made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth.
We may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:
- Restoring your ability to speak, eat and chew normally
- Alleviating excess stress on the bite
- Improving the shape and volume of your face
- Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
- Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
We will help you determine whether a custom dental bridge is the right choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss.
Dental Bridge Treatment in Quakertown, PA
We provide in-office milling to provide crowns for dental bridges. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete a dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.
Many patients benefit from implant-supported dental bridges. Instead of dental crowns, Dr. Halle-Brown will place dental implants to secure a dental bridge. She will ensure that you are in good oral health and have enough jaw bone tissue to support implants before treatment. While dental implants require a longer treatment time, implants provide permanent stability and strength to false teeth.
