Do you have a hard time talking or eating because you have missing teeth? Do you ever wonder what you might be able to do about it? There are a number of things you can consider doing to restore your teeth and smile, including a dental bridge.

Typically, a dental bridge is made up of at least three teeth: an artificial tooth positioned between two crowns. These artificial teeth—which are known as pontics—are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. Once you’ve had a bridge placed, you could improve the appearance of your smile and your ability to chew, speak, and eat. Furthermore, a bridge can stop your natural teeth from shifting.

While bridge restorations can provide you with a number of cosmetic and functional benefits, they are also comfortable. Still, if you’re interested in this restoration, please note that you may need to visit our team twice. During your first visit, we’ll create a crown to base your bridge off. However, if a second visit is necessary, we’ll also place a temporary bridge, which will offer you a number of the same benefits.

If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of dental bridges, or would like to learn more about your other restoration options, please feel free to contact Snowy River Dental at 208-788-2006. Dr. Danton Bradshaw and our team will be happy to discuss your restoration options with you. We’re eager to hear from you.
