If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Bogdan Bodroug may recommend a dental bridge in Vancouver, Washington. A dental bridge is a restoration made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown on either side. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap to hold the dental bridge in place.

A dental bridge can benefit your smile in many 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 lost tooth or teeth. Your dental bridge can prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place by filling the gap.

To place your dental bridge, our dentist will first shape the teeth on either side of the gap to allow room for the bridge. Impressions are then made so that your dental bridge can be made specifically for your smile. Once your dental bridge is finished, our dentist will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before it is permanently placed.
