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

Dr. Worob has been my dentist for a few years now and my 5 year-old son has seen Dr. Cronin for the last two years. We love everyone there. They are so friendly and accommodating. My son loves brushing Allie the Alligator's teeth and the toy at the end. I appreciate that they are innovative and keep up with technology, and that they show you photos of your teeth and where flossing would help versus just saying, "You really should floss, you know?" 12 Oaks Dental is a wonderful find and our family highly recommends them.
