Whether you have one or multiple missing teeth, dental bridges can help you. We want to help you improve the health, function and appearance of your smile. If you want to learn more about dental bridges in Ripley, Tennessee, please contact Elite Dental Care today at 731-635-5000 and we will get you scheduled for a consultation with Dr. Brien Polk.
Dental bridges can be designed to replace one tooth or multiple teeth in a row. This will help restore the appearance of your smile, along with improving your ability to chew and speak normally. Dental bridges are made of one or more prosthetic teeth anchored in place by two dental crowns on both sides of the prosthetic teeth. The crowns stabilize the prosthetic teeth and make sure the surrounding teeth do not shift or loosen. Bridges are most often recommended to:
- Improve your ability to speak and eat normally
- Eliminate the stress on your bite
- Replace partial dentures
- Keep your other teeth from shifting
Receiving a dental bridge typically takes two appointments. At your first visit, we will get impressions and prepare your teeth to receive the bridge. Once your bridge is created, we will schedule you for your second appointment. This is where our dentist will ensure that the bridge fits correctly and then bond it into place.
We are excited for you to achieve the smile of your dreams that you feel confident showing off. A dental bridge can make this possible! Call our office today if you have any questions.
