In the case that you have lost one or more teeth, you have several options at Country Club Dental for replacing your missing teeth and restoring your smile to its full potential. If you are interested in a natural-looking, secure tooth replacement, our dentists may suggest a bridge. A dental bridge is a restoration used to replace either a single missing tooth or a couple of teeth that are missing in a row. While there are three main types of dental bridges available, the most commonly used is known as a traditional bridge. This type of restoration includes two dental crowns and an artificial tooth (or multiple artificial teeth, if more than one tooth being replaced) called a pontic. The pontic is held in place by the crowns, which are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap. This ensures that your restoration is stable and will not easily come loose. Your dental bridge in Cameron Park, California, will be custom made for your smile to blend in with your appearance and fit comfortably.
Drs. Sonny and Fara Afshar may suggest a bridge if you are looking for a restoration to:
- Replace missing teeth
- Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting
- Enhance the beauty of your smile
- Restore your ability to speak and eat as usual
- Relieve uneven stress on the bite
