Missing teeth make it difficult to chew without pain or smile without embarrassment. If missing teeth are not promptly treated, they can cause your remaining teeth to shift, tilt and become crooked.
Dental bridges have been used for years to replace missing teeth.
In a dental bridge, your existing teeth are used as anchors. The dental bridge fills in the gap caused by missing teeth. Dental bridges can be composed of various materials, including gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain. If you would like your dental bridge to fit in seamlessly with the rest of your beautiful smile, a porcelain bridge is a good option for you. Porcelain is durable and stain-resistant. Best of all, porcelain imitates the color and reflective properties of natural teeth.
During the dental bridge process, teeth are prepared by recontouring them to accommodate the restorative material. Then impressions are created of the teeth and sent to the laboratory.
Once your final dental bridge is ready, you will return to our office for fit check and final cementation of the bridge.
