A More Affordable Option To Permanently Replace A Missing Tooth Compared To Implants Is a Tooth Bridge
A dental bridge is a false tooth, which is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth.
- The two crowns holding it in place are attached onto teeth on each side of the false tooth.
This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures, but are stuck down permanently.
After your mouth has been assessed, the appropriate diagnostic records and models taken, the required structure of the bridge is decided upon. Bridges are not removable and can be made from similar materials to crowns, metal or porcelain, or a combination of both.
Bridges offer a functional way to replace missing teeth and work hand in hand with crowns to achieve the best possible aesthetically pleasing effect.
