Dental bridges are prosthetics that are designed to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth. They literally bridge a gap by utilizing crowns as abutments and free-standing replacement teeth called pontics. The crowns are attached to your existing teeth to anchor the prosthetic in place and restore the complete function and feel of your smile. With the proper maintenance, your bridge can last for up to 15 years or longer.
In addition to offering traditional restorations, we can also restore missing teeth with dental implants in Santa Maria. This treatment involves anchoring small titanium posts called implants into the jawbone to replace your missing root structure. Due to their biocompatible abilities, they’re able to fuse with the bone through a natural process called osseointegration, keeping it from deteriorating. Finally, a customized crown, bridge, or denture is secured to the implants to restore the smile.
