Spanning the Gap: The Facts on Bridges
For some people with a missing tooth, or a row of a few missing teeth, a bridge can be the perfect way to complete their smile.
A bridge consists of two or more dental crowns that are fused together to “bridge” the gap left by a missing tooth. The bridge fits securely over the adjacent teeth to create a seamless look. The entire bridge is placed at once and is made on the CEREC machine using advanced software and materials.
When a Bridge Is the Answer…
- You are missing one or more teeth in a row.
- You do not want to get a dental implant to replace your missing tooth.
- You need to stop your other teeth from moving due to missing teeth.
- You want to improve your smile and you have a missing tooth.
