The Purpose of Dental Bridges

Published on December 22, 2014 by

Many patients may be missing teeth because of dental problems they had in the past, or may be facing the prospect of losing teeth that cannot be saved to extraction. If you are in this situation, there are several restorative procedures we offer that may be able to fill the gap in your smile by providing a durable replacement. One of the treatments we offer is dental bridges, which, with the help of crowns, can replace several missing teeth in a row.

What is a Bridge?

A dental bridge can replace several teeth in a row. We can craft a bridge specifically for you that can fill the gap, so that you can avoid the dental health issues caused by missing teeth. In addition, we will create crowns for you, usually out of either porcelain or zirconia, which will be placed on the teeth surrounding the bridge. These abutment teeth will be reshaped so that the crowns will fit with the bridge snugly in the extra space.
