Bridging The Gap

Bridging The Gap

Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise pleasing smile? Let Harris Dental in Phoenix fill the gap for you with a dental bridge, to help you get your smile back!

A traditional bridge consists of one or more fake teeth (called pontics) that are held in place by dental crowns. Known as abutments, the crowns are cemented to the the teeth on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth or teeth.

The teeth on either side of the gap must be prepared before they can support the bridge. This is accomplished by removing the enamel so there is enough room for the crowns to be cemented into place. These teeth will always need to be covered with a crown moving forward, even if you change the bridge later on.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, dental bridges are one of our restorative dentistry services. Schedule an appointment with us today.
