What is a dental bridge?

Dr. Timmons and Dr. Gangestad are happy to offer a dental bridge to those who are missing one or more teeth and have the desire to improve their smile. A dental bridge is made of two crowns and multiple false teeth and is anchored by the teeth that lie on both sides of the gap in your mouth. With this dental solution, our dentists are able to restore your smile, maintain the shape of your face, and prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of place. They are also able to provide the needed force in your bite and restore your ability to properly chew and speak.
