At Starcare Dental, we offer dental bridge services to residents of West Chester, Pennslyvania, and surrounding communities.
Dental bridges are prosthetic teeth supported by dental crowns (traditional bridges) or implants (implant-supported bridges).
A traditional bridge is a viable option for replacing two or three consecutive missing teeth. Your new prosthetics are supported by dental crowns placed on healthy abutting teeth. The bridge is permanently attached to the crowns, so it remains firmly in place when eating, laughing, or talking. As traditional dental bridges are a non-invasive treatment, your new prosthetics can be created relatively quickly to avoid delays in replacing missing teeth.
