Bridges
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.

There are several types of bridges. You and your dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. This type of bridge consists to two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years, however they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.

Reasons for a bridge:

•  Fill space of missing teeth.
•  Maintain facial shape.
•  Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
•  Restore chewing and speaking ability.
•  Restore your smile.
•  Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
