A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. With this type of restoration, one or more neighbouring teeth may be crowned and used to anchor the replacement.
Tooth replacement helps avoid shifting of surrounding teeth into gaps. If left untreated, structural changes to your mouth and jaw may occur. This can cause you difficulty with eating, speech, and other functions.
A dental bridge is custom-made to match your natural teeth in colour, size, and shape. We use strong and durable materials for your restoration. With appropriate at home and professional care, your dental bridge may last for years.
If you have a missing tooth, our dentists can help you choose the best solution. One option is to use dental bridges, which are custom-fitted tooth prosthetics that function and look like natural, healthy teeth.
We may recommend dental bridges as opposed to implants to replace a missing tooth that has neighbouring teeth with decay and/or large fillings & crowns, or a tooth that has been missing for a long time (i.e., with severe gum recession or bone loss around the area).
A bridge is custom-fitted to your bite and is placed over your natural teeth or dental implants.
