If you are missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Johnson, Dr. Nguyen, Dr. Smith, Dr. Dimond, and Dr. Spindle may recommend a dental bridge in Waco, Texas, to restore your smile. A dental bridge is made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown on either side. The crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap, which are called the abutment teeth, to anchor the dental bridge.

Dental bridges can do many things for you and your smile, including:

– Restore the appearance and functionality of your smile
– Maintain your face shape
– Restore your ability to eat and speak properly
– Properly distribute your bite
– Keep the remaining teeth from shifting out of place

Our dentist will prepare the teeth surrounding the missing tooth to allow room before placing a dental bridge. Impressions of the teeth are made so that your dental bridge can be constructed specifically for your smile. Once your bridge is ready, the fit and color will be checked and adjusted as needed. Then the bridge will be cemented into place.

We welcome you to contact Acre Wood Dental today to learn more and to schedule an appointment with our dentists. We look forward to restoring the beauty and functionality of your smile!
