Dental bridges are excellent solutions to the common problems associated with tooth loss.
If you have lost teeth, no matter the cause, you may be looking for a solution that restores your smile while improving the functionality of your mouth. One option is a dental bridge, which is a device used to close gaps between teeth and fill in spaces. A dental bridge is also known as a false tooth or a pontic, which is typically held in place in your mouth by a crown that is cemented to the teeth on either side of the space. Bridges can be made of a wide range of materials, although porcelain is the most natural looking and blends in with the other teeth in your mouth.
At the office of Paul D. Nifong, Jr., DDS, we offer dental bridges to patients throughout Clemmons, North Carolina. Before we place a dental bridge, our team will consult with you and assess the current condition of your teeth. We want to ensure that a bridge is the proper treatment approach that will give you the best results. During this consultation, we’ll visually inspect your teeth and gums, as well as discuss your oral health history to determine what may have caused the loss of the tooth.
