Do you have gaps and spaces in your mouth caused by missing teeth? If you wish to restore the beauty and functionality of your smile, Dr. Gregory J. Brandau may recommend a dental bridge in Sarasota, Florida. A dental bridge is placed to close the spaces in your smile by replacing missing teeth. A dental bridge consists of dental crowns with a replacement tooth attached in between them. The dental crowns are placed on the abutment teeth, which are the teeth on either side of the gap. Our dentist may suggest a dental crown to:
- Restore the beauty and functionality of your smile
- Restore the ability to talk and chew properly
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Properly distribute your bite by replacing missing teeth
- Prevent your natural teeth from shifting
When placing a dental bridge, our dentist will begin by preparing the abutment teeth. This is done to allow room for the dental bridge in your mouth. Impressions of your teeth are taken so that the dental bridge can be constructed. When the dental bridge is ready, our dentist places it in your mouth to examine the color and fit. Adjustments are made as needed, and then our dentist cements the dental bridge in place.
