Bridging The Gap

cosmetic dental Monkton

Hello, Monkton smiles! Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise nice teeth? Let Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS fill the gap for you and help you get your brilliant smile back! A dental bridge could be the perfect answer for your missing tooth and help you chew and speak properly.

A bridge consists of two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth allow a false tooth to be held in a place where the missing tooth should be. The false tooth that is placed in the gap is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you select a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be created using gold or an alloy.

Dr. Longenecker will work closely with you to make certain that your bridge has a precise fit. Then one of our proficient hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no tooth decay arises in the nooks and crannies.

Dr. Longenecker has been successfully restoring smiles since 1998. Thousands of patients have trusted Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS with their dental health.

Come see us at Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS and you can bridge the gap and love your smile again!
