Dental Bridges in Naperville, IL

A dental bridge replaces missing teeth and keeps your natural teeth in their proper position, making it easier to talk, eat, smile and laugh. Since missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to loosen and be lost, a dental bridge also helps you keep your natural teeth. If you think a dental bridge might be right for you, Derrick L. Williamson, D.D.S., M.S., P.C., is a leading provider of dental bridges in Naperville, IL. Dr. Williamson recommends the best bridge options for you, and the team at our prosthodontic and cosmetic dentistry practice is beside you every step of the way.

Why Are Teeth Bridges Important?

A missing tooth is a serious matter. Teeth are made to exist together. When you have a missing tooth, the adjoining teeth tend to tilt or shift into the empty space. This can affect your bite and cause pain in your teeth or jaws. Teeth that have tilted or drifted are also harder to keep clean, putting you at higher risk for tooth decay and tooth loss. A missing tooth also increases the potential for the jawbone to shrink. Bone loss changes the way the jawbone supports the cheek and lips and can make your face look older.

Teeth bridges prevent all of these issues by providing structure to keep your teeth in their proper place. If you have missing teeth, don't wait for the negative consequences. Trust Dr. Williamson to provide you with a bridge that looks good, makes eating easier, and ensures your long-term dental health.

How Do Tooth Bridges Replace a Missing Tooth?

Tooth bridges use your natural teeth as an anchor to position replacement teeth in the gap left by one or more missing teeth. Your dental bridge is comprised of two porcelain crowns that fit over your anchor teeth, with the replacement teeth between them. The replacement teeth are bonded to the crowns, and the crowns are bonded to your natural teeth, creating a strong, natural-looking result.

If you are using a partial denture to replace missing teeth, you will be thrilled with the improvement you experience with a bridge. Our dental bridges are sturdier and more stable than your partial denture. A dental bridge feels and looks like your own teeth. Also, teeth bridges are easier to clean-just brush and floss the same way you take care of your natural teeth. Wouldn't it be a relief to trade in your removable partial denture for a strong, stable dental bridge? Dr. Williamson gives you the feeling of having permanent teeth once again.
