At Evans Street Dental, we can replace the teeth missing from your smile when you visit us for a dental bridge. Dr. Shane Ellsworth helps to create this restoration so it sits securely in your mouth, allowing you to confidently chew, speak, and smile. Call our dentist if you want to receive a dental bridge in McMinnville, 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 the shifting teeth due to extra space
- Restore a fully functioning bite
- Retain your face’s natural shape
- Replace a partial denture
- Unhinder 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! Please call our office to schedule an appointment if you are interested in receiving a bridge treatment.
