Regardless of the reason, a missing tooth can destroy your self-confidence and make it difficult to feel good about how you look. A smile is often your key to first impressions and if a missing tooth is holding you back, a dental bridge is the best solution.
While the aesthetics of a missing tooth can be detrimental, the oral health problems that can arise are equally concerning. Dr. Angela Berkovich’s team of dental professionals may recommend getting a dental bridge to replace missing teeth.
The false tooth is called a pontic; it is made from porcelain to blend in with your existing teeth and is an extremely durable addition to your smile.
The way that a common dental bridge works is by connecting the pontic(s) to the existing teeth on either side of the gap. Crowns are utilized as anchoring points and are placed over each natural tooth. The bridge is then inserted and cemented into place, thus completing the row of teeth that looks completely natural.
Not only do bridges look great, but they are fully functional as well, so you have no worries or restrictions on things you can eat or do. Whether trauma or another condition has caused you to lose a tooth, our team at the office of Dr. Angela Berkovich, DMD, can create a professional dental bridge that will restore your smile and confidence.
