Have you lost one or more teeth? To bridge the gap, Dr. Ho, Dr. Chi, and Dr. Sorito may recommend a dental bridge in Portland, Connecticut. A dental bridge is a restoration made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown attached on either side. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the dental bridge.

A dental bridge can benefit your smile in several ways. A dental bridge can restore your smile’s appearance as well as restore your ability to eat and talk properly. Having a dental bridge placed can maintain the shape of your face. Your dental bridge will properly distribute your bite by replacing the missing tooth or teeth. By filling the gap, your dental bridge can prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

To place your dental bridge, our dentists will first alter the teeth on either side of the space to allow room for the bridge. Impressions are then made so that your dental bridge can be made for your individual smile. Once your dental bridge is complete, the fit will be checked and any necessary adjustments will be made before it is placed permanently.
