Bridges

A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to serve as abutments to hold the replacement tooth in place.

Crowns and bridges are most commonly prepared from high quality materials such as semiprecious or precious metals, porcelain or a fused combination of the two.

When you are missing a tooth, the surrounding teeth can shift out of position and can change your bite (the way your teeth fit together). A bridge consists of two crowns, which are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth in between. The bridge will prevent your remaining teeth from shifting, preserving your bite and the shape of your face. Bridges also restore your ability to chew and speak normally.

Aesthetics, function and tissue compatibility are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you.
