Exams, Cleaning, X-Rays, & Sealants
Bridges are used to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Sometimes when a tooth is lost a space is left which can be unsightly, can cause difficulty in chewing or can result in movement of the adjacent teeth. There are many options for filling spaces including implant, dentures and dental bridge. If you have lost one or two teeth but would rather not wear a denture, you may want to opt for a bridge. Bridges are a series of crowns joined together to cover or close a space left by the loss of a tooth. They are permanent and once bonded into place will look and feel similar to a natural tooth.
Bridges can be supported by natural teeth or by implants. At Cherry Tree Dental Care we will check the health of your gums and the remaining teeth to ensure that they are suitable for use in bridge treatment and, take appropriate measures if they are not. We will discuss all your options with you to ensure that you can keep your mouth healthy and your smile stunning with a well-fitting and natural looking bridge.
