We are pleased to provide dental bridges at Arbor Dental for our patients who have suffered from tooth loss. If you have lost just one tooth or a couple of teeth in a row, our dentists may recommend a bridge. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace the missing teeth and restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile. A traditional dental bridge is comprised of two dental crowns and a pontic, which is an artificial tooth. Our dentists attach the crowns to the teeth or dental implants that neighbor the gap left by the missing tooth. These crowns anchor the pontic in place and provide a stable restoration.
When in place, your bridge can improve your smile by:
- Enhancing your smile’s beauty
- Restoring the normal functionality of your smile, including your ability to properly chew, eat, and speak
- Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of place
- Relieving excess stress on the bite
Each dental bridge in Cedar City, Utah, is custom made to fit comfortably and to aesthetically restore your smile. If you believe a bridge may be the right choice for restoring your smile, we welcome you to call or visit Dr. Glazier at our office today. We look forward to restoring your smile!
