UNDERSTANDING FIXED BRIDGES
Missing teeth can negatively impact the appearance of your smile, and they can also affect your dental health and function. If you have missing teeth or require a tooth extraction, then your dentist in Belmont may ask you to consider treatment with a fixed bridge.

Bridges are a popular solution for missing teeth that can be fixed or removable. A fixed bridge consists of 2 crowns and 1 or more replacement teeth that sit in between the crowns. Dentists cement fixed bridges to the teeth that are next to the space left by a lost tooth, making the bridge a permanent fixture in the patient’s mouth.
