Restore Your Smile and Confidence with Dental Bridges at Dental Smiles of Joliet

Missing teeth can create a gap in your smile, impacting not only your appearance but also your oral health. When teeth are missing, surrounding teeth can shift, leading to bite problems, difficulty chewing, and even jaw pain. Dental bridges offer a reliable and effective solution to replace missing teeth and restore function and confidence to your smile.

What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are fixed dental restorations that literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They consist of several parts:

  • Crowns: These are caps placed over the teeth on either side of the gap (abutment teeth).
  • Pontics: These are artificial teeth that fill the space of the missing teeth and are attached to the crowns.

Types of Dental Bridges:

  • Traditional Fixed Bridges: These are the most common type of bridge. They are permanently cemented in place, offering a strong and stable solution.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: For added support or to preserve healthy teeth, dental implants can be used to support the bridge instead of crowns on natural teeth. Implants offer several benefits, including preventing bone loss and mimicking the function of natural teeth.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Restores a natural appearance: Bridges close the gap left by missing teeth, improving your smile and facial aesthetics.
  • Improves oral health: Bridges prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, maintaining proper bite alignment and reducing the risk of further complications.
  • Enhances speech: Bridges can help improve speech clarity, especially when missing teeth are in the front of the mouth.
  • Increases chewing ability: Bridges allow you to chew food more effectively, contributing to better digestion and overall health.
