Dental Bridges are use to help people improve their cosmetic smile and dental health by replacing missing teeth and alleviating stress on the bite. The Dental Bridge replaces the teeth that are missing with artificial teeth and bridges the gap between one or more broken teeth. The dental bridge is made from gold, alloys, porcelain–or a combination of those materials–and, for support, is bonded to the surrounding teeth. Dental Bridges can help both men and women of various ages find their smile again and smile in confidence.
As with other dental procedures, the success of the dental bridge rests on the quality of the foundation (or the teeth, gums, and bone the bridge is attached to). It is important that the patient’s existing teeth, gums and jaw are healthy and vital. Sometimes there may be a combination of dental bridge with other procedures to achieve the desired results.
