If you are missing one tooth or a couple of teeth in a row, Dr. Thomas M. Kiefer may recommend a dental bridge for you. A dental bridge is made up of at least one pontic, or an artificial tooth. A pontic can be made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth to provide you with the most natural-looking smile possible. Aside from completing your smile, some of the benefits of dental bridges include:
- An improved ability to speak
- An enhanced ability to chew and eat
- Stop existing teeth from shifting
- Prevent your mouth muscles from drooping, preserving the shape of your face
- Relieve excess stress on your teeth
A dental bridge can be attached to an implant or to a dental crown. After a consultation with our dentist, Dr. Thomas M. Kiefer, our team can help you determine how your bridge should be anchored. In only two visits, our team can improve the function and appearance of your smile. Dental bridges are designed to be stable and can last for more than a decade with proper care.
