Missing teeth? A bridge might just be the solution for you!
A bridge is one or more artificial teeth that are cemented into place using the real teeth on either side for support—hence the name. A bridge is a great option for filling the space created by a missing tooth because it replaces the missing tooth both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge materials include gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all-ceramic material made to match your natural tooth color. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear and/or esthetics.
