Missing teeth not only affect your smile but also your ability to eat and speak. If not replaced, you may even find that your remaining teeth shift out of place! Dr. Olivia Park offers dental bridges to replace missing teeth and help you regain your smile, oral health and oral function.

Bridges are typically recommended to replace a single missing tooth or several missing teeth in a row. They “bridge” the gap caused by missing teeth, allowing you to once again eat, speak and smile confidently. Our dentist may recommend a bridge to:

  • Restore your oral function
  • Alleviate stress on your bite
  • Support the shape and volume of your face
  • Replace removable partial dentures
  • Prevent your remaining natural teeth from moving out of their alignment
  • Improve your smile

Dental bridges are fixed, or nonremovable, restorations. They consist of one or more prosthetic teeth and are anchored in place through the use of dental crowns on either side of the bridge. These crowns may be attached to your natural teeth or to dental implants to help ensure that your bridge is stable. Bridges typically take two appointments to complete, and they are designed to last for many years.
