Have you lost one or more teeth? Dr. David J. Harsant may recommend a dental bridge in Fayetteville, North Carolina, to close the gap. A dental bridge is a restoration made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown on either side. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the dental bridge.

A dental bridge can benefit your smile in many ways. A dental bridge can restore your smile’s appearance as well as restore your ability to speak and chew correctly and comfortably. Your face shape can be maintained by a dental bridge. Your dental bridge will properly distribute your bite. By filling the gap, your dental bridge can prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

Our dentist will first shape the teeth on either side of the gap to allow room for the bridge. Impressions are then made so that your dental bridge can be made specifically for your smile. Once your dental bridge is complete, the fit will be checked and any necessary adjustments will be made before it is permanently placed.

We encourage you to contact our dental office at 910.864.4646 to learn more and to schedule your next appointment.
