A dental bridge is used to replace multiple missing teeth. You can think of it as literally “bridging” the gap made by one or more missing teeth. We can make bridges out of gold, alloys, porcelain, or a mix of these materials.
A dental bridge also helps maintain your facial shape, as sagging can occur when you are missing teeth, and it can prevent uneven stress in your bite.
Because your bridge is bonded to the surrounding teeth, it’s important to maintain healthy teeth, gums, and bone. That way you can ensure the strong foundation and success of your bridge!
