A dental bridge is one of the tooth replacement options Dentist Michael D. Doty, D.D.S. offers to restore your smile following tooth loss. Dr. Doty has extensive experience in a number of restorative treatments, and he will ensure that your smile’s health, function, and beauty are restored. If you have lost one tooth or a few teeth in a row, a dental bridge might be the solution you need to replace your missing teeth and repair your smile.

The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial replacement tooth in place, ensuring that your restoration will not shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete the dental bridge treatment. Dr. Doty may recommend a dental bridge in Abingdon, Virginia, to improve your smile by:

• Restoring your ability to speak, eat, and chew as normal
• Alleviating excess stress on the bite
• Improving the shape and volume of your face
• Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
• Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
• Enhancing the appearance of your smile

If you have experienced tooth loss, we encourage you to contact us today to set up your visit with Dr. Doty. During your consultation, he will work together with you to make certain that you receive the care your smile needs.
