Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made by our dentist, Dr. Scott Steedman, from two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap – these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth, and the false tooth, or teeth, are between them. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. If you are missing teeth and looking for dental bridges in Lake Stevens, Washington, please give Smiles By Steedman at 425-334-4087 for more information.
