A dental bridge is a type of restoration that is meant to replace a missing tooth. Bridges are durable, long-lasting restorations that can stay securely in place for decades with proper care. A bridge is ideal for patients who wouldn’t necessarily be eligible for a dental implant. Bridges can help to improve the look of your smile while improving overall oral functioning.
Our dentists in Chicago will start by performing an examination to determine if a bridge is needed. Most patients who require a bridge can have the restoration placed easily in our downtown Chicago dental office. Bridges are ideal for patients who wouldn’t be able to have surgery done for a dental implant. They may even be needed if you’ve already had implants placed and need a bridge to be made and placed on top.
