Dr. Ambreen Lakhani offers dental bridges to patients missing one or more teeth. Bridges close the gaps between your teeth to restore your smile and your bite, and are often a beautiful, long-lasting solution for restoring your smile. We welcome you to call us at 770-622-5909 to learn more about dental bridges in Duluth, Georgia, and make your appointment with our dentist at Meadowbrook Family Dentistry.
Dental bridges are natural-looking, permanent dental appliances that are used to replace one or more teeth. They are custom-made to match the natural color and contours of your teeth, and restore not only your smile, but a proper bite relationship between your upper and lower teeth, allowing you to chew and speak with ease and preventing your remaining teeth from shifting out of position and marring your smile.
There are several types of fixed (non-removable) dental bridges, including conventional bridges, cantilever bridges, and resin-bonded bridges. There are also some bridges that are removable and can be cleaned and cared for by the wearer, while other bridges need to be removed by a dentist. Dental bridges are typically made of porcelain, gold alloys, or combinations of these and other materials.
Dental bridges may be placed using crowns attached to other teeth, or may serve as a restoration atop a dental implant.
