Serving McMinnville and Surrounding Areas of Oregon
A dental bridge is a non-removable dental appliance used to replace a missing tooth (or missing teeth). A bridge can be used to accomplish the following:
- Fill gaps left by missing teeth
- Prevent shifting of teeth due to extra space
- Restore a fully functioning bite
- Retain your face’s natural shape
- Replace a partial denture
- Improve speech
- Promote a natural, radiant smile
Bridges comprise two crowns that go over the teeth adjacent to the gap. We call these teeth the abutment teeth. Between the crowns, we place an artificial tooth, known as a pontic. This tooth will look and function like a natural tooth. Best of all, when you smile, no one will know you have a dental appliance in your mouth!
At Evans Street Dental Center, we can replace the teeth missing from your smile when you visit us for a dental bridge. Dr. Natalya Ramsay creates this restoration so that it sits securely in your mouth, allowing you to confidently chew, speak and smile.
