Even a single missing tooth can cause problems for the appearance and health of your smile. At Robertson Dental, our dentist and team offer dental bridges in Silver Spring, Maryland, as reliable replacements for a single tooth or two or more teeth adjacent to one another. Our team loves placing dental implants, but they are just one restoration option, and for many people, a bridge is a great choice. If you would like to see if a bridge is right for your smile, call 301-588-3310 to speak with a member of our team and plan your visit with Dr. Alicia Robertson.
A dental bridge is one of the restoration options our dentist may recommend to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. As a fixed restoration, a dental bridge is non-removable, anchored into place between dental crowns. Whether they cap a dental implant or your original tooth, your dental crowns and bridge will be custom designed to fit your smile and to fill the space left by your missing teeth. Between your two crowns, your dental bridge holds an artificial tooth in place, restoring your smile to its original health, function and appearance, and ensuring your restoration cannot be easily loosened or shifted. The entire process takes only two visits to our office and is designed to last you for many years.
Our dentist may use a dental bridge to:
- Alleviate stress on your bite
- Enhance the appearance of your smile
- Improve the shape and volume of your face
- Replace a removable partial denture
- Restore your ability to eat, speak and chew normally
- Prevent your remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
