Build a Bridge to a Better Smile!

Missing teeth can be incredibly difficult. Even having lost a single tooth can completely change the way you live your life and, more importantly, how you feel about yourself. It can be really difficult for people to get their confidence back, particularly if that hole in their smile stays empty.

Why Choose Sunny Dental & Orthodontics For Dental Bridges? 

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices that span the gap left by missing teeth, comprising artificial teeth anchored to adjacent natural teeth or implants. They restore the appearance and function of the smile, making chewing and speaking easier. Good candidates for dental bridges are those with one or more missing teeth, provided they have healthy adjacent teeth or sufficient bone support for implants. Bridges are typically made from porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these materials.

This is also usually a stronger option than traditional bridges, and will tend to last longer before needing to be replaced.
