Are you missing teeth? If so, chances are you may be a great candidate for restorative dentistry. There are many advanced tooth replacement solutions available for patients looking to fill in the gaps in their smile. Dental bridges are a state-of-the-art treatment that can give you back a complete, natural-looking smile once more!

What Are Dental Bridges?

Bridges are dental prostheses that consist of dental crowns on either end with false teeth (pontics) in the middle. The crowns attach to natural teeth or dental implants to secure the bridge in place. Depending on the patient’s needs, bridges can replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. Dental bridges can typically be completed in two to three appointments from the consultation to the molding of your replacement teeth to final placement!
