Dental Bridges Clawson, MI
Dental bridges are designed to eliminate gaps caused by missing teeth.
Tolerating from lost teeth can negatively affect the appearance and functionality of your smile. Missing teeth can result in a malformed occlusion (bite), misalignment of the teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech impediments, a higher chance of developing periodontal disease and an increased possibility of tooth decay.
A dental bridge is comprised of two crowns that are affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap, called abutment teeth, and a false tooth or teeth in between. These fake teeth are called pontics and can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, alloys, and porcelain. Dental bridges are bolstered by natural teeth or implants.implants.
Bridges are a great solution for:
- Restoring your smile.

- Maintaining the natural shape of your face.
- Distributing the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth.
- Preventing any remaining teeth from further drifting out of position.
