Recognize When a Dental Bridge Is Needed
If you have gaps in your smile due to missing teeth, our dentist in Laguna Hills can close that gap with a dental bridge. Also known as a false tooth, or pontic, a dental bridge is made out of materials such as porcelain so that it will appear natural and match the rest of your teeth. There are four primary types of dental bridges including traditional, cantilever, Maryland, and implant-supported.
If you are interested in getting a dental bridge, our dentist can help you determine the best kind for you. A dental bridge may be necessary if you want to restore your ability to chew food, you want to prevent your other teeth from moving out of place, or you want to prevent complications from arising due to a missing tooth. One more reason a dental bridge may be right for you is that you simply want to improve your smile.
