DENTAL BRIDGES

At Dream Smile Dental, we believe that it is important to deliver restorations that restore both function and aesthetics.

A dental bridge is recommended for patients who are missing multiple teeth and do not like the idea of implants or a removable denture. In order to replace teeth with a dental bridge, a patient must have teeth on both sides of the missing area to serve as “anchors.” These anchors are called abutment teeth. The abutment teeth have to be strong enough to support the chewing forces of the teeth that will be replaced. A bridge is fabricated in a similar manner to a dental crown.
