Dental bridges are a great way to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth. The adjacent existing teeth are prepared and used to literally create a bridge with artificial teeth to cross the area where the tooth/teeth are missing. Bridges are made from gold, metal, alloys, porcelain, zirconia, or a combination of these materials to ensure strength and durability. Bridges are permanently bonded to the adjacent teeth with dental cement, making them esthetic, and non-removable. A missing tooth/teeth can cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw, as well as making it difficult to speak or eat properly. Dental bridges can maintain the shape of the face, as well as alleviate any stress that the missing tooth/teeth has had on the bite.
