What is a Dental Bridge?
A “bridge” may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain facial shape and alleviate stress in your bite. A dental bridge is often an appropriate choice for filling in spaces when, in certain situations, a dental implant is not desirable.
A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth that look completely natural, literally “bridging the gap” where one or more teeth may have been. A bridge is permanently cemented in place, and therefore is not removable as a “denture” would be. Your bridge can be made of aesthetic porcelain, gold, or a blend of the two materials.
A well-designed and well-maintained bridge can offer natural looking aesthetics and superior function for long periods of time.
