If you are searching for a tooth replacement option that is stable and natural looking, our dentist may recommend a bridge. A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) tooth replacement that can be used if you have lost a single tooth or a couple of teeth in a row; in general, a bridge can be used to replace a maximum of three teeth in a row. The bridge includes two dental crowns and one or more artificial replacement teeth. The crowns are placed on the neighboring natural teeth or dental implants to support the artificial tooth, or pontic. The crowns and pontics are created from molds and impressions of your teeth to ensure your smile looks natural and beautiful. Your dental bridge in Newton and Andover, New Jersey, can be made from tooth-colored materials like porcelain for a restoration that blends in with your smile’s natural appearance. Dr. Marlayna Best may suggest this type of restoration in order to:
- Prevent the remaining teeth from moving out of position
- Enhance the appearance of your smile
- Improve your ability to chew, speak, and eat as usual
- Relieve uneven stress on the bite
