Bridges Fixed Or Cemented
Dentist in Wheaton
A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A tooth or teeth neighboring the missing tooth or teeth may be crowned, and used as anchoring teeth to support the replacement tooth.
It is important to replace missing teeth to avoid shifting of surrounding teeth, which may lead to misaligned bite, TMD or Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction and other problems. If left untreated, structural changes to your mouth and jaw may occur, making it difficult to eat and speak properly.
Dental bridges are custom-made to match your natural teeth in color and overall appearance. They are made from porcelain, metal, a combination of porcelain and metal which ensure that they are strong and durable. With appropriate at home and professional care, your dental bridges may last for years.
