Dentist in Wilmington, NC
A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. With this type of restoration, one or more neighboring teeth may be fixed with a dental crown and used to anchor the replacement.
Tooth replacement helps prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting into gaps and misaligning your bite. Structural changes to your mouth and jaw may take place if left untreated. This can cause you to struggle with eating, speaking, and other oral functions.
Your dental bridge will be custom-made to match your natural teeth in color, size, and shape. The strong and durable materials that we’ll use for your restoration will allow you to speak and eat as if the bridge was a real tooth or teeth. With appropriate at home and professional care, your dental bridge may last for years.
