If you reside in Orem, Lindon, or Vineyard and have a missing tooth, don’t worry. The dentists at Canyon Gate Dental have got you covered! Bridges restore both the function and beauty of your smile. If you have a missing tooth, a bridge can be installed to replace it. A bridge is an artificial tooth that is connected on either side to crowns on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth.
Bridges are Dentist Recommended
A missing tooth is no joking matter. It can affect your confidence and the functionality of your mouth, leading to chewing problems or issues with surrounding teeth. Dental bridges can restore chewing function, aid in clear speech, and prevent your remaining natural teeth from shifting.
Types of Bridges
Bridges can be made from a variety of materials. For back teeth, bridges are usually available in metal, such as gold, or porcelain-fused-to-metal varieties. These are ideal for the back molars because they are strong and can withstand high levels of biting force. For front teeth, there are more aesthetically pleasing options, such as porcelain materials without metal, as these teeth do not need to sustain chewing.
Traditional bridges are most commonly used; however at Canyon Gate Dental, we can customize and personalize each bridge as needed. Alternative bridges include implant bridges, Maryland bridges, and cantilever bridges.
