A dental bridge is one way to replace one or more missing teeth. Another choice to replace missing teeth is dental implants—click here to learn more about Dr. Patel’s extensive experience with dental implants.
When created by a skilled cosmetic dentist like Dr. Patel, a well-done dental bridge can be virtually undetectable. As is so often the case, the key to success is in the details. A successful bridge will make it appear as if the false tooth is one of your natural teeth, and this is accomplished using a technique called “ovate pontic”. Ovate pontic is used to create the illusion that the false tooth in the bridge is actually growing out of your gum.
