If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth in a row, Dr. Jutric may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile to full health and beauty.
Making Great Smiles Come True
Whether your missing teeth are a result of an accident, injury, or gum disease, so many aspects of your life may be affected. We have found patients with this issue are much more likely to experience future tooth loss as the jawbone is likely to shrink and weaken over time. A dental bridge may be the best solution to restore your healthy smile.
Dr. Damjan Jutric has the experience and skill with fixed and removable dental bridges to offer you a long-term smile improvement.

A bridge can be either a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable or a removable appliance.
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 tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete a dental bridge.
Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty and health of your smile.
Dr. "J" may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:
Restoring your ability to speak, eat and chew normally
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
Dr. Jutric will examine your mouth and discuss your goals, determining if a custom dental bridge is the right choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss.
