A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials, and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.
The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it's very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong. Memorial Park Dental provides fixed dental bridges as well as a full range of cosmetic dental procedures to the residents of Houston, TX, and the surrounding areas. We are a comprehensive dental practice that is committed to restoring and enhancing the beauty and health of your smile.
Bridges are considered to be a cosmetic procedure because they are used as a replacement for missing or damaged teeth. They literally hide the gap caused by a missing tooth (or teeth), improve the appearance of the smile, and they also promote the health of the entire mouth by preventing decay and the demineralization of the jaw bone where the tooth is missing. Cosmetic bridges consist of a framework onto which a replacement tooth is attached. This framework is held in place by two dental crowns on either side. Bridges offer advantages to the entire mouth because they reduce the risk of future damage to neighboring teeth.
