Why Get a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges have several benefits. They aid in your ability to speak and chew, and help prevent the surrounding teeth from moving around. Plus, they can greatly improve a patient’s self-esteem and smile.

What Is the Dental Bridge Process?
During your initial visit, the two anchoring teeth will be prepped for their crowns and a mold will be made for your dental bridge. You will receive a temporary bridge to wear until the permanent one is available. When the dentist receives your permanent bridge, it will be properly adjusted and cemented to your teeth.
