Fill in Your Smile With a Dental Bridge
Dental Bridge Restorations in Anchorage
A dental bridge is used to fill in space create by missing teeth. This restoration method uses one or more artificial teeth that are cemented into place using the real teeth on either side for support. Bridges are both a functional and cosmetic solution to missing teeth and come in several different types and materials depending on your situation.
Benefits of Bridges for Your Smile
While implants are considered a more permanent solution for replacing missing teeth, dental bridges are another option used for achieving a full smile. Here are just a few of the benefits:
- Restoring Appearance and Functionality: We want you to love your smile and to bear it proudly. Missing teeth can make you feel unconfident and can make chewing and speaking difficult. Bridges help you achieve a full, natural-looking smile.
- Replacing Multiple Teeth: If lost teeth due to impact of gum disease, you may be missing two or more teeth in a row. Bridges are a cost-effective method for filling in these large gaps.
- Offering Several Material Options: Bridge materials come in several options, including gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all-ceramic. Your dentist can help you choose the best material depending on the location of the restoration. For example, you’ll likely want a ceramic, natural looking bridge on front teeth but metal provides additional strength for your molars.
What Our Patients Say
I’m 64 years old and I have never experienced anything like I did at South Anchorage. The most gentle dentists I have ever seen. I had bone grafts and implants on both my upper and lower arches. I did not have to take a single pain pill. The dentists and their entire staff are nothing short of amazing.Leon Higdon
