A dental bridge is a restoration that helps to replace one or more missing natural teeth. The bridge attaches permanently to surrounding teeth, so it won't need to be removed and cleaned like a prosthetic appliance. Bridge work is specifically made for each patient, providing a natural and realistic appearance. Most fixed bridges can last for many years before they'll need to be replaced completely.
We can examine your teeth to determine if a fixed bridge is right for you. In order for the bridge to fit properly and securely, it'll need to be placed over two surrounding teeth. In general, the larger the bridge, the less secure it will be. We may recommend implants to hold a bridge if we feel it wouldn't be secure enough on its own.
