Overland Park Dental Bridges – Bridging the Gaps Between Teeth
When a patient is only missing one or a few teeth, we use a bridge supported by two crowns to fill in the space. A bridge is a natural looking replacement tooth or set of teeth that literally bridges the gap between teeth, and is supported by crowns placed on both teeth surrounding the gap. Dental bridges offer a long-lasting solution to our patients because they are fixed permanently in the mouth, and are not removable by hand as dentures are. It is also possible to support bridges using dental implants on either side if more than one tooth is missing, or if the patient prefers this method. With proper maintenance, a dental bridge can facilitate speaking, chewing, and smiling with confidence for years to come. Please contact our staff if you have any questions at all about dental bridges or dentures.
