Dental Bridges in Bakersfield, CA
Left untreated, missing teeth can lead to bone recession, misalignment, a prematurely aged appearance, and confidence issues.
To fill in gaps from tooth loss, we can provide a traditional or implant-supported dental bridge.
Bridges are a series of artificial crowns that are connected. Even though bridges consist of crowns, their purpose is different from that of a standard restoration. Instead of restoring a tooth after injury or decay, a bridge will replace missing or failing teeth by closing in the gaps of a smile. A bridge can replace up to four teeth in a row and is connected to biological teeth on each side. This custom series of prosthetics restores a patient’s ability to chew and speak comfortably and improve one’s appearance.
Like crowns, patients can choose which materials are used to fabricate a bridge.
A quality bridge can restore full dental function and also help you feel more confident about your appearance.
