Dental bridges are a type of dental restoration used to replace missing teeth. A custom dental bridge can improve the function, health, and appearance of your smile if you are missing teeth. Your dentist, Dr. Szymczak, will place a dental crown on the two teeth or dental implants adjacent to the gap to support the artificial tooth. When you visit Szymczak Family Dentistry, Dr. Szymczak may recommend a fixed dental bridge for one or more of the following reasons:
- To replace a partial denture
- To prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth
- To improve your ability to chew and eat
- To restore lost facial volume
- To enhance the beauty of your smile
Your custom dental bridge will fit your mouth comfortably and securely, and it can be created from tooth-colored materials for natural-looking, aesthetic results. If you are missing one or more teeth, we invite you to call our dental offices in Broadalbin and Glenville, New York to learn more about dental bridges and our other tooth replacement options.
