If you have lost a tooth or had one removed, replacing it is recommended to maintain the alignment of remaining teeth and restore smile aesthetics. For patients whose remaining teeth are healthy, dental bridges are a cost-effective and permanent solution. Dental bridges literally “bridge” the gap created by one or more missing teeth, without requiring the need for surgery! Aesthetic and affordable, dental bridges are a valuable restorative option for patients missing teeth. Our prominent dentists are highly experienced in replacing teeth and are leaders in cosmetic dentistry on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. This training and artistry in cosmetic restorations provides patients with the smile aesthetics they desire and the full functionality needed for everyday eating and speaking.
Made up of a series of custom dental crowns, dental bridges in Cambridge and Easton, MD, can return full function to the site of the missing tooth while improving the aesthetics of the area. Dental bridges require that the patient be in good oral health and that the adjacent teeth are free from decay or disease. These “abutment” teeth will need to be prepared by permanently removing a portion of the tooth enamel to accommodate the dental crowns that hold the artificial tooth in place. Achieving the correct fit and color of dental bridges is where the expertise of our cosmetic dentists comes into play. We utilize our advanced training and technology to ensure your restoration is personalized to your smile, restoring both aesthetics and function!
