A bridge is a dental device that fills a space that a tooth previously occupied. After a tooth has been extracted, some patients prefer a bridge to replace the missing tooth because a bridge is a fixed replacement. Unlike other types of replacements, a bridge is not removable and can provide a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles. A bridge may be necessary to prevent shifting of the teeth that can lead to bite problems (occlusion) and/or jaw problems and resultant periodontal disease.
Bridges safeguard the integrity of existing teeth and help maintain a healthy, vibrant smile. There are several options that a patient has when considering what type of bridge is best suited to heir needs. Our dentists and their teams will work with every patient to help them determine which will best for their needs. Veneers
