Have you lost one or more permanent teeth because of severe decay, an injury, or another issue? Dr. Fahad Javed may recommend a dental bridge in Indianapolis, Indiana, to restore your smile. A dental bridge is made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown on either side. The crowns are attached to the teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the dental bridge.
Dental bridges can do many things for you and your smile, including:
– Restore the appearance and functionality of your smile
– Maintain your face shape
– Restore your ability to eat and speak correctly and comfortably
– Properly distribute your bite by replacing a lost tooth or teeth
– Keep the remaining teeth from shifting out of place
Before placing a bridge, our dentist will shape the teeth surrounding the missing tooth to allow room for your restoration. Impressions of the teeth are made so that your bridge can be constructed specifically for your smile. Once your dental bridge is ready, the fit and color will be checked and adjusted as needed. Then the dental bridge will be cemented into place.
