If you are missing one or more teeth and are facing embarrassment and lifestyle complications, we may suggest a dental bridge. Dental bridges are permanent dental appliances that bridge the gap between a missing tooth and the natural teeth that remain. There are many types of dental bridges in Fairmont, North Carolina. Our skilled dentist, Dr. Samuel Evans Jr., will aid you in determining which kind is right for your smile after a complete examination and consultation. The three main dental bridges we offer are:
- Traditional Bridges: These bridges are made from two dental crowns and a false tooth called a pontic. The crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the pontic in place.
- Cantilever Bridges: A cantilever bridge is similar to a traditional bridge, but it is used when there are no teeth on one side of the gap created by a missing tooth.
- Resin-Bonded Bridges: Resin-bonded bridges are used when one of your front teeth is missing. It involves bonding the false tooth, supported by metal framework, to your smile.
Our office offers both porcelain and gold dental bridges. We want you to love your smile and to enjoy complete oral health, and we invite you to contact us today to learn more about bridges. Our team cannot wait to put a smile back on your face.
