Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Although the cosmetic effect of missing teeth is often of concern, the greater issue is the ability to chew food, maintain healthy gums and when teeth surrounding the gap start to drift.
Dental bridges provide the solution. A dental bridge is a procedure that uses a crown, also known as a ‘pontic’ and fuses it between two porcelain crowns to fill the empty space. The crowns holding the pontic’s in place are attached to the teeth either side of the gap, replacing the missing tooth/teeth and giving you back a smile with no gaps.
