A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A tooth or teeth neighboring the missing tooth or teeth may be crowned and used as anchoring teeth to support the replacement tooth. It is important to replace missing teeth to avoid shifting surrounding teeth, which may lead to misaligned bite, TMJ, and other problems.
Dental bridges are custom-made to match your natural teeth’ color and appearance. They are made from gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain mixtures to ensure they are solid and durable. Your dental bridges may last for years with appropriate at-home and professional care.
Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of missing a tooth, structural changes to your mouth and jaw may occur if left untreated, making it difficult to eat and speak properly.
