Dental bridges can be used to renew a smile by replacing a lost tooth. Bridges are fixed, cemented restorations designed with a natural look and feel to seamlessly match your remaining teeth. A bridge is anchored to healthy teeth on either side of a gap, holding a false tooth or teeth in between. A bridge can prevent bite collapse and restore your ability to chew more naturally in the area of the missing teeth. To find out if a dental bridge in Maryville, Illinois, would be a good fit for your smile, call Dental Wellness Center of Maryville today at 618-288-1923 to plan your visit with our dentists, Dr. Pat Murphy, Dr. Patrick Heulsmann, or Dr. Mike Murphy.
