A dental bridge is a non-removable dental appliance used to replace a missing tooth or missing teeth. A bridge can be used to accomplish the following:
Fill gaps left my missing teeth
Prevent the shifting of teeth due to extra space
Restore a fully functioning bite
Retain your face’s natural shape
Replace a partial denture
Promote a natural, radiant smile
Dental bridges comprise two crowns which go over the teeth, adjacent to the gap. We call these abutment teeth. Between the dental crowns, we place an artificial tooth, known as a pontic. This tooth will look and function like a natural tooth. Best of all, when you smile, no one will know you have a dental appliance!
