Bridges help maintain the shape of your face as well as stabilizing your bite, by replacing missing teeth with artificial teeth. Essentially, it "bridges" the gap between an edentulous area and the adjacent teeth. It is bonded onto adjacent teeth for support, so it is extremely important that you keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong in order to maximize the support and strength of the bridge. A bridge is considered a permanent restoration, as it can only be removed by the dentist. A bridge can be fabricated in gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.

Please contact our office if you have any further questions, or to schedule your appointment for a comprehensive evaluation to see if a bridge is the right treatment option for you!
