If you have missing teeth, they can be replaced with a dental bridge or alternatively with dental implants or dentures.
A dental bridge can replace up to 3-4 teeth. They can be made out of metal and porcelain or all porcelain. They can help cosmetically and more importantly functionally, allowing you to eat what you want.
Dental bridges can be used to replace teeth at the back or in the front of your mouth. We use all porcelain bridges in the front of your mouth as they look more natural.
Missing teeth should be replaced for many reasons, such as cosmetic, functional and to prevent teeth from moving or over erupting, which will affect your bite and health in your jaw joints. Over erupted teeth can look unsightly and more importantly can affect your bite, or increase the risk of getting tooth decay and gum disease in the area.
Dental bridges normally take two appointments, one to make impression of your teeth to send to the dental lab and the second to fit the bridge. Bridges look aesthetically pleasing and look completely natural so your friends and family will never know. Talk to your dentist about a bridge today.
