Bridging the Gaps
A dental bridge is used to provide tooth replacement for one or more missing teeth.
Although the cosmetic effect of missing teeth is often of concern, the greater issue is what happens to the ability to chew food, maintain healthy gums and when teeth surrounding the gap start to shift.
Dental bridges provide the solution. A dental bridge procedure uses a crown, also known as a ‘pontic’ and fuses it between two porcelain crowns to fill the empty area.
The crowns holding the pontic’s in place are attached to the adjacent teeth, replacing the missing tooth/teeth and giving you back a smile with no gaps.
