What is a dental bridge?

When a patient has gaps and spaces in their smile as a result of missing teeth, Dr. Sonny Afshar and Dr. Fara Afshar may recommend a dental bridge in Roseville, California. A dental bridge is a device that is used to close gaps in your smile. They are made of a replacement tooth with a dental crown on each side. The crowns serve as an anchor and are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap, which are referred to as abutment teeth. Our dentists will make imprints of your teeth so that a porcelain dental bridge can be custom made to fit your smile. They will select a shade of porcelain that will closely match the shade of your natural teeth. When the bridge has been constructed, our dentists will check the fit and color, make any necessary adjustments, and cement the bridge permanently into place.
