Restore Your Confident Smile at Southpoint Dental Center
If you have a missing tooth or need to have a tooth pulled, our dentist near College Place, WA, can replace the gap with a dental bridge. A dental bridge is used when a tooth can’t be salvaged with a filling or crown, but it is still necessary to have a fully functioning tooth. A bridge also prevents your remaining teeth from moving out of position, which can cause further unwanted dental problems.
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials to match your other teeth. Unlike a removable bridge, a fixed bridge is attached to surrounding teeth for support, and can only be removed by a dentist.
Is a Dental Bridge Right for Me?
