Losing any of your teeth is hard, but losing a front tooth poses extra challenges. When you’re missing your front teeth, you usually feel particularly self-conscious and unsure about the way you look due to obvious gaps in the most prominent part of your smile.

If you’re missing a front tooth in Midland Park, NJ, our dentists can replace your missing tooth with an oral appliance called a dental bridge

How can a dental bridge help me?

When you lose a tooth, you need to replace that tooth so that you aren’t dealing with severe oral health challenges like additional tooth loss and bone deterioration. Your smile requires a dental restoration that can fill the space while also supporting your bite and your neighboring teeth. 

Replacing a missing front tooth is vital from both a cosmetic and a functional standpoint, and a dental bridge in Midland Park can help you in both areas.

To replace your missing front tooth, our dentists would place a dental bridge to cover the empty area left behind. This bridge connects your remaining teeth on either side of the missing tooth and restores your smile using an attractive and durable replacement. 

Will people know I have a dental bridge?

No, other people should not be able to tell that you have a dental bridge by merely looking at your smile. Your false tooth, known as a “pontic,” rests securely in the space where your natural tooth used to be. We can color this artificial tooth to match your mouth’s natural shade of white so that it blends in nicely with your other teeth. 

Once you receive your dental bridge, no one will ever know you had a missing front tooth! You’ll leave your bridge in your mouth permanently, and it will help you eat and chew your food.
