A dental bridge is permanent dental appliance that is used to restore one or more missing teeth, especially if you are missing several teeth in a row. Typically made of porcelain fused to metal, traditional dental bridges utilize two dental crowns and a false tooth called a pontic. After your custom-made dental bridge is created at a dental laboratory, we will place the dental bridge to literally bridge the gap left by missing teeth. The dental crowns will be placed to anchor the pontic into place. When all final adjustments have been made, the dental bridge will be cemented in place.
Dr. Howe and Dr. Dugan, our caring dentists, may suggest a dental bridge in Salem, Oregon to:
- Replace one or more missing teeth
