If your smile is ready for a restoration this summer, a dental bridge might be an ideal choice for you. These dental restorations can effectively replace a lost tooth and give your mouth back its full functionality. A dental bridge is anchored to neighboring teeth to fill in for a missing one. Bridges are durable and long lasting while appearing natural as they are designed to blend in with your natural teeth.  Let’s take a brief look at the highlights a dental bridge can offer your smile:

— When teeth go missing, the lack of stimulation to the jaw normally provided by a tooth can cause jawbone loss and your smile to look sunken. A dental bridge is an effective treatment to prevent that from happening.

— When teeth are missing, your chewing and speaking abilities are altered. With a dental bridge, you will eat and speak normally again.

— Dental bridges look natural, so replacing missing teeth with them will cosmetically enhance your smile.

— With proper care, your dental bridge can last more than a decade.

— When the gaps in your smile are filled by a dental bridge, you will actively be lowering your risk for tooth decay and gum disease.

— Dental bridges effectively prevent surrounding teeth from shifting out of place, which occurs with missing teeth.

As you can see, a dental bridge is an effective restoration for your smile.
