Correct Your Smile

Do you suffer from missing teeth? Dr. Schold and Dr. Smars use dental bridges to replace missing teeth and restore the function and appearance of your smile.

True to its name, a dental bridge is literally used to bridge a gap created by an absent tooth or teeth.

A dental bridge works by using natural teeth or implants on either side of a missing tooth. We use these teeth as anchors for your dental bridge. They serve as the support for the false tooth or teeth we place between them.

If you are missing teeth, a dental bridge could be a great solution.

Next, our staff will take impressions of your mouth to help our dental lab design your permanent bridge. Typically, we will give you a temporary bridge to wear while your permanent bridge is being made. This bridge will be removed during your final visit when we cement your permanent one in  placed.
