Bridges

Bridge the gap in your smile

If you’re living with a gap in your smile, you understand the difference that having a full set of healthy, functioning teeth can make – not just for your smile, but for your life. Missing teeth can make it difficult to speak normally, to enjoy your favorite foods, and to smile and laugh with confidence. At Coastal Cosmetic Family Dentistry, we believe that everyone deserves to have a smile they can be proud of. If you’re missing teeth, a bridge might be a good option to restore your smile in form and function.

What is a bridge?

A dental bridge is a restorative appliance that can replace a single or multiple missing teeth to bridge the gap and make your smile whole again. Just as every smile is unique, your bridge will be custom-made to fit your needs and help you get back your healthy, natural looking smile.

Bridges are made out of beautiful tooth-colored porcelain that mimics your natural teeth in form and function, and ensures a seamless fit. A bridge can be fixed to surrounding teeth with the help of dental crowns on either side for a secure, permanent solution. A bridge can also be removable and secured using small metal clasps for a more temporary restoration.

What are the benefits?

The benefits of restoring your smile with a bridge are many, and range from functional, to cosmetic, to health:

  • Preserve health of surrounding teeth and jawbone
  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Natural-looking tooth colored porcelain
  • Stable and secure
  • Enjoy your favorite foods
  • Brush and floss just like natural teeth
  • Restore your confidence in a complete smile
