If you have lost a tooth, you may find that your speech doesn’t sound so clear and chewing food is more difficult. If you want to restore both the structure, function, and appearance of your bite, then Dr. Todd Tibbs may recommend placing a dental bridge in your mouth. This tooth replacement will sit securely in your smile so you can once again experience the benefits of having a complete set of teeth. Contact our dentist at 704-633-1799 if you want to receive a dental bridge in Salisbury, North Carolina.
Bridges are non-removable appliances that are created to replace one or more missing teeth. Dr. Tibbs will prescribe a fixed bridge when there are healthy teeth surrounding the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth. At our dental practice, we can create a bridge using one of three materials:
- Solid Gold—Bridges made of solid gold are reliable and often last a very long time.
- Porcelain Fused to a Gold Base—Bridges made of these materials are often chosen because of their strength and aesthetic beauty.
- Metal-Free Porcelain—These types of bridges provide high-strength and optimal cosmetic results.
