A dental bridge is a permanent dental fitting used to replace an absent tooth/teeth.
A bridge can:
- Fill gaps/holes left by absent teeth
- Prevent the shifting of remaining teeth
- Restore the ability to bite, chew and speak properly
- Replace a partial denture
- Restore your smile
Dental bridges are made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. We call these abutment teeth. A pontic, an artificial tooth, is placed between the dental crowns. This tooth will look and function like a natural tooth. Please call us to schedule an appointment if you are interested in more information on dental bridges.
