Dental Bridges in Wilmington, NC
We Can Replace the Gap & Restore Your Beautiful Smile
When a tooth can’t be saved with a filling or a crown, yet you still will want it to be fully functioning, our experienced cosmetic dentists may recommend dental bridges in Wilmington, NC. A bridge also prevents your remaining teeth from moving out of position, which can cause other unwanted dental problems. In addition, a dental bridge will enhance your ability to speak and chew normally. If you have a missing tooth, our expert dentists and our team at Atlantic Dental Group can replace the gap with a dental bridge.
What Is a Bridge?
Sometimes called a “fixed partial denture,” a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges are made from gold, alloys, porcelain – or a combination of materials – to match your natural teeth. A fixed bridge is attached to surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, a fixed bridge must be removed by a dentist.
A traditional dental bridge replaces one or more teeth with solid, stable dental crowns. If you replace one missing tooth with a dental bridge, your bridge will consist of two traditional hollow dental crowns flanking one replacement tooth (crown). We can even attach your dental bridge to dental implants!
Convenient In-House Lab
Additionally, you can look forward to cosmetic advantages such as custom shade matching and improved quality from our convenient in-house lab. Our experienced team of technicians will fabricate your customized crowns and bridges using the most advanced, state-of-the-art technology.
