A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A tooth or teeth neighboring the missing tooth or teeth may be crowned and used as anchoring teeth to support the replacement tooth. It is important to replace missing teeth to avoid shifting of surrounding teeth, which may lead to a misaligned bite, TMD, and other problems.

Dental bridges are custom-made to match your natural teeth in color and overall appearance. They are made from mixtures of gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable. With appropriate at-home and professional care, your dental bridges may last for years.

Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of missing a tooth, if left untreated, structural changes to your mouth and jaw may occur, making it difficult to eat, speak, and digest properly.
