If you have missing teeth that need replacement, you may be thinking about getting a dental bridge. At our dental practice, Michael J Weiss & Associates, you can see either Dr. Michael Weiss or Dr. Beth B. Messinger, at our Woodside dental office.
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced at our Woodside dental office, dental bridges can be a great way to go. Dental bridges can be either fixed or removable. A fixed dental bridge is permanently attached to teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth. The bridge is permanently attached to adjacent teeth with dental crowns. Between the two dental crowns you will find a porcelain crown which is used to fill in the gap left by the missing tooth. These dental bridges will not only help to restore your proper facial contours, but they will also make your smile more beautiful, and make it easy for you to eat whatever food you want, in total comfort. A dental bridge will also keep adjacent teeth from trying to move over and fill in the gap left by the missing tooth. The dental bridge will also alleviate stress on your bite, helping to save teeth opposite the missing tooth. Our dentist will create the bridge so that it is perfectly comfortable for you to wear. And, the dental bridge will perfectly color-match the adjacent teeth so no one will ever know that you even have it in your mouth. Removable bridges are also known as partial or full dentures. They need to be removed from your mouth several times a day so that they can be cleaned, and so that your gums can rest. Removable bridges can be used to replace a full row of teeth, or a partial row of teeth. The partial bridge will work around remaining teeth, and help to keep these teeth safe from inadvertent movement and stress, as well.
