Restore Your Smile With Help From Our Team
Our experienced cosmetic dentists may recommend a dental bridge in Fort Mill, SC, if your tooth can’t be salvaged with a filling or crown, yet you still want a fully functioning tooth. A bridge also prevents your remaining teeth from moving out of position, which can cause other unwanted dental problems. In addition, a dental bridge will enhance your ability to speak and chew normally. If you have a missing tooth, our cosmetic dentist can replace the gap with a dental bridge.
What Is a Bridge?
A bridge, also referred to as a “permanent partial denture,” “bridges” the space left by one or more missing teeth with prosthetic teeth. To match your natural teeth, bridges can be fashioned from porcelain, metal alloys, gold, or a combination of these materials. A fixed bridge is supported by the teeth on either side. A permanent bridge can only be taken out by a dentist, as opposed to a removable bridge.
With a typical dental bridge, one or more teeth are replaced with sturdy dental crowns. If you use a dental bridge to repair one lost tooth, your bridge will include two conventional hollow dental crowns on either side of the new tooth (crown). Even dental implants can be used to support your dental bridge!
How to Care for Your Dental Bridge
After your bridge is put in place, we advise you to take care of it the same way you would their natural teeth. Generally speaking, the only maintenance required is consistent brushing and flossing. Once your bridge is in place, please get in touch with our office if you experience any pain.
