If you lose a tooth, a bridge may be needed to support one or more crowns and fill the gap left behind. A dental bridge can replace one missing tooth or a row of missing teeth, effectively “bridging the gap” in your smile.
Dental bridges are created based on the patients’ needs and usually consist of an artificial tooth that permanently fills a gap. This is then attached to crowns that are fitted over your adjacent healthy teeth effectively locking it into position.
Dental bridges particularly relevant for individuals who are susceptible to gum disease or those who wish to replace a front tooth for cosmetic purposes. Dental bridges offer a durable and tailored solution that seamlessly blends with your natural teeth to help restore a natural looking smile.
