That is what makes the dental industry so great, they just keep advancing!

If teeth aren’t replaced the person runs the risk of their other teeth shifting to fill in the gap, this can result in problems with the bite or crooked teeth.

Neither of which is appealing to the eye or easy to live with.  Many dentists are using dental bridges now to fill the space between teeth.

Basically what they do is bridge the gap between two existing teeth with an artificial bridge and tooth.  These bridges strengthen the teeth that they are attached to with the use of crowns.

Usually people can’t tell when someone gets a bridge, because it looks and behaves like a normal tooth most people just think that it looks like a nice smile.

The bridges are constructed at the dentists office using a mold of your existing teeth, and gap, and sent off to a lab where the actual bridge is constructed.

After it is sent back it is only one short dentist visit and then you are all good to go.

Dentists are able to identify the best procedures for filling in missing teeth.  There are always options out there for people that are just looking to live with a normal smile and function in everyday life.

Dental bridges are a fairly common procedure done by dentists to ensure that their patients experience a higher quality of life after a tooth replacement.
