A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. With this type of restoration, one or more neighboring teeth may be crowned and used to anchor the replacement.
Tooth replacement helps avoid shifting of surrounding teeth into gaps. If left untreated, structural changes to your mouth and jaw may occur. This can cause you difficulty with eating, speech, and other functions.
A dental bridge is custom-made to match your natural teeth in color, size, and shape. We use strong and durable materials for your restoration. Bridges are made from porcelain fused to zirconia to give incredible strength, yet realistic beauty. Other times, we use porcelain to gold bridges. These are the best materials. Other lesser materials include porcelain to silver and porcelain to non-precious metals. Although less expensive, the quality is severely limited.
With appropriate at home and professional care, your dental bridge may last for years.
