Bridging The Gap

cosmetic dental Decatur

Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise attractive teeth? Let Decatur Smiles fill the gap for you and help you get your smile back! A dental bridge may be the perfect solution for your missing tooth.

A dental bridge consists of two or more crowns affixed to the tooth on each side of the gap created by the missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth permit a false tooth to “bridge” the gap.

The false tooth  is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. Its color can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you choose a porcelain material. A pontic can also be made using gold or an alloy.

Dental bridges are a staple of dentistry, and among the restorations we offer at Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
