Do you have a gap in your smile caused by a missing tooth? Dr. Charles Peter in Clearwater, Florida may recommend a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a treatment that closes the gap in your smile by replacing the missing tooth and can even be used to replace multiple missing teeth. The bridge consists of dental crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a replacement tooth that is attached between the dental crowns to fill in the gap. Dr. Peter may recommend a bridge to:
- Restore the beauty and functionality of your smile
- Restore your ability to chew and speak properly
- Maintain your face shape
- Properly distribute your bite
- Keep your natural teeth from drifting
