Dental Bridges in Coquitlam
If you are missing a tooth, but a dental implant is not suited for your situation, your dentist may recommend a dental bridge as a cost-effective alternative to restore your beautiful smile. A dental bridge consists of an artificial tooth that is bonded to a crown on each side that is placed over teeth on either side of the empty tooth socket for a functional and appealing finish.
How Dental Bridges Work
A dental bridge can replace a damaged or decayed tooth that has been extracted for your dental health. At Greenline Dental, our team uses impressions of your mouth to custom-craft a bridge that will fit the contours of your natural smile. To place the bridge, your dentist will shave down the adjacent teeth and attach crowns to them so the bridge can stay in place for years to come.
When to Consider a Dental Bridge
Your dentist might recommend a dental bridge as a cost-effective and long-lasting restorative treatment to fill an empty tooth socket following a full tooth extraction. A dental bridge can effectively restore the function, look, and feel of your smile, just like a full dental implant but without a surgical component. Your dentist will review your case and recommend the most suitable option for your oral health and lifestyle.
