Bridges support a healthier, happier smile. We are here to help your mouth function the way it should.
As the name implies, a tooth bridge is a dental appliance used when teeth are missing. It is made up of two or more crowns that are anchored onto the remaining natural teeth on either side of the gap. The artificial teeth are attached to the crowns and fill in the missing spaces.
A tooth bridge is a viable option for anyone who has one or more missing teeth. Whether the gap is from an injury, decay, or gum disease, a tooth bridge can restore the function and appearance of your teeth.
Here at Santa Clarita Dental Care we are committed to you. Our experienced team of dental professionals practices the latest techniques and applies advanced technology to ensure top-quality, personalized dental care. We understand no two dental bridges are the same, just like your smile.
We offer a range of tooth bridge solutions: traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bridges, to treat your specific needs.
