Dental Bridges Can Restore Your Smile With Confidence

Don't let missing teeth hinder your smile. At Valley Hills Dentistry, we offer natural-looking dental bridges to restore your smile and the functionality you've been missing.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are custom-made devices that bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Crowned teeth or implants on either side of the gap support them, with false teeth (pontics) filling the space between the two anchor teeth.

What Are Dental Bridges Made From?

The artificial teeth in dental bridges are designed to match the color, shape, and texture of your natural teeth. They’re are made from a variety of strong, durable materials, including:

  • Gold
  • Alloys, a combination of metals
  • Porcelain
  • A combination of these dental materials

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

  • Restore your smile’s natural appearance
  • Restore your ability to chew and speak comfortably
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Give your teeth the proper bite force
  • Keep remaining teeth from shifting out of place
  • Prevent further decay, infection, or damage to the tooth
  • Cover dental implants and anchor dental bridges

Dr. Shaw is very nice and his assistants are also very nice. They all seem like they know what they're doing. I can't wait to get my dentures. They're also very gentle. Dr. Shaw makes sure everything is right before you get your dentures. I would recommend him to everyone.
