We do all we can at the office of Nicholas Tretter, DDS to provide our esteemed patients with the most beneficial and affordable dental services. So, for those with missing teeth, our dentist may recommend you consider getting dental bridges.
A dental bridge is a non-removable dental appliance used to replace a missing tooth (or missing teeth), and can be used to accomplish the following:
- Fill gaps left by missing teeth
- Prevent the shifting of teeth due to extra space
- Restore a fully functioning bite
- Retain your face’s natural shape
- Replace a partial denture
- Promote a natural, radiant smile
A bridge is comprised of at least two crowns, which go over the teeth adjacent to the gap. We call these abutment teeth. Between the crowns, we place an artificial tooth, known as a pontic. This tooth is designed to look and function like a natural tooth. Best of all, when you smile, no one will know you have a dental appliance!
Please call us at (508) 829-6665 to schedule an appointment with our team and learn if a dental bridge is the most appropriate service for your needs. We hope to see you soon and look forward to being able to improve your smile as needed.
