If you have missing teeth, we can close (or bridge) the gaps in your smile with dental bridges. A dental bridge is a false tooth (called a pontic) held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. Bridge materials include gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material to blend in with your natural teeth aesthetically. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or aesthetics.
A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Creating a dental bridge is an art as much as an exact science.
