To replace a missing tooth or two or more teeth next to one another, talk to our dentists about getting a dental bridge. A bridge is a sturdy and permanent way to fill in the empty spaces in your smile and can last for many years if properly cared for. To see if dental bridges are right for you call (916) 774-1605 to plan your visit with Dr. John Hansen.
If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom-made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete a dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.
