If you are missing one or more teeth, our dentists may recommend a restoration called a dental bridge. Dental bridges are used to close gaps in your smile left by either a single missing tooth or a couple of missing teeth in a row (usually a maximum of three). A bridge is made of two crowns for the teeth adjacent to the gap and a false tooth in between. Using CEREC® same-day restoration technology, our dentists may be able to construct and place a dental bridge in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, in one visit. Each restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and to match the appearance of your natural teeth. We may recommend a bridge made of high-quality porcelain, which can be matched to the original shade of your teeth for a natural-looking restoration. Dental bridges can improve your smile by:
- Restoring your smile’s appearance
- Restoring your ability to eat and speak properly
- Maintaining the shape of your face
- Properly distributing the forces of your bite
- Preventing your remaining teeth from drifting out of position
