Replace missing teeth.
A dental bridge may be used if you are missing one or more teeth. The bridge helps fill the space from the missing teeth and replaces them with artificial teeth. Bridges can also improve your smile if missing a front tooth.
The bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of materials. The bridge is bonded (i.e., cemented) to the neighboring teeth for support.
The stronger the foundation of the bridge, the less likely it is to break and require additional dental work. Therefore, it is important to keep your mouth healthy through a combination of good hygiene and frequent visits to your dental care team at Southdale Dental Associates.
