Austin Dental Bridges

Replacing Missing Teeth in Austin

Whether you’re missing one tooth or several teeth, a dental bridge is another solution for restoring your entire smile to health, function and an attractive appearance.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is used to “bridge the gap” left by a missing tooth or teeth. It is made up of two or more dental crowns that are placed on the healthy remaining teeth on either side of the gap; as well as the false teeth (called pontics) held in place between the crowns.

What are the Benefits of a Dental Bridge?

It may surprise you, but even one missing tooth can have a tremendous impact on your smile. When a tooth is lost, and not replaced, the remaining teeth can shift and move. This moving can lead to, biting pain, crooked teeth, bone loss, decay, and TMJ pain.  A bridge can:

  • Restore the appearance of your smile
  • Restore your ability to bite and chew comfortably
  • Restore your ability to speak clearly
  • Keep healthy teeth in their natural positions, preventing them from shifting
  • Support your facial structure

I have gone to Dr. Worob for years. The dental care that he and his staff have given me is excellent. Not only do they take care of my teeth, they also explain everything to me. In addition, they enjoy working with each other. It is a pleasure to go there.
