A dental bridge can be used to replace a missing tooth, giving you an attractive, functional smile. It consists of a filler tooth supported by dental crowns on teeth adjacent to the space. The dental bridge is made of durable aesthetic – ceramic that looks like your natural teeth, and can last for a decade or more.
Fitting a dental bridge depends on the skill and experience of the dentist. With over 25 years as a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kenneth Siegel has helped many people get great results with dental bridges in Blue Bell. And his training in neuromuscular dentistry means he knows how to place bridges that are comfortable and don’t interfere with the smooth function of your bite.
Why Dental Bridges?
If you have lost a tooth, it is important to replace that tooth to prevent damage to other teeth and future tooth loss. A missing tooth affects the balance of forces in your mouth and can cause:
Additional stress on other teeth, leading to fractures
Shifting of teeth that are not braced by adjacent teeth
