Fixed Dental Bridges: A Great Solution for Tooth Restoration
Smile restoration with the Kelley Family Dental Center team is easy, thanks to restorative dentistry solutions available at our office. For those in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area with tooth loss, solutions such as fixed dental bridges may be considered by our team of professionals. Drs. Jonathan and Gretchen Kelley work alongside patients to determine the most appropriate options for a patient’s unique dental situation. This may include dental bridges, which are readily available at our office.
What is a fixed dental bridge?
Our doctors describe the fixed dental bridge as a restoration designed to replace one or several teeth in a row. False teeth called pontics are created to match the color, size, and shape of one’s existing teeth, and they are bonded to dental crowns on each side that are used over the adjacent teeth for support. When patients have a dental bridge bonded onto the surrounding teeth, the false teeth “bridge the gap” and restore the smile’s function and appearance.
Why consider a fixed dental bridge?
Fixed dental bridges are a wonderful solution for patients who:
- Want a restoration that does not need to be removed and replaced each day
- Want a natural-looking option to restore the smile
- Want a restoration that may be covered in part or in whole by their dental insurance plans
