A bridge is a type of tooth replacement that can be used to replace one tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. Dental bridges are made up of two dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth. The artificial teeth are used to replace the missing teeth, while the dental crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap to support the artificial teeth. Because they are anchored to the natural teeth with dental crowns, dental bridges are fixed (non-removable) dental restorations. Our talented dentist, Dr. David Romisher, may recommend a dental bridge in order to:
- Alleviate stress on the bite
- Enhance the appearance of your smile
- Improve your ability to chew, eat, and speak as normal
- Restore lost facial volume
- Prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth
Bridges are designed to look and function just like natural teeth, so you can rest assured that your bridge will be natural looking and will effectively restore your smile. In Merchantville, New Jersey, bridges are usually completed in only two visits to our comfortable dental office.
