A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite as well as restoring your beautiful smile.
A bridge replaces missing teeth by literally "bridging the gap" where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from gold, porcelain, or a combination of these materials, and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Replacing missing teeth is important to improve chewing efficiency and esthetics.
The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — The supporting teeth, gums and bones should be free of infections or disease. Therefore, it's very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.
