A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your remaining teeth and bite.
A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from porcelain and gold alloy, or entirely from porcelain, and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. For more cosmetics situations, special porcelain is used, and color matching is done in the office with photos or at the lab for the highest aesthetic result.
The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it's very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and bone healthy and strong.
