If you have missing teeth, a dental bridge may be used to replace them. Bridges help maintain the shape of your face and alleviate stress on your bite.
Using artificial teeth, a bridge will fill in the spaces of missing teeth, and they look great. Your bridge can be made out of gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials, and is bonded onto the surrounding teeth for support.
The success of any bridge depends on its foundation – the other teeth, gums, or bone it is attached to. Therefore, it is very important to keep your neighboring teeth, gums, and jaw bone healthy and strong.
