A bridge is an essential restorative treatment that we use to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. It replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, literally bridging the gap where one or more teeth used to be.
Depending on what your dentist recommends, as well as your personal preference, budget, and the aesthetic you wish to achieve, your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Once it is bonded into place, your bridge will restore the structure and strength of your bite, so you can chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
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 jaw healthy and strong.
