What is a bridge?
A bridge restores the natural smile by replacing missing teeth. A bridge of high-quality replacement teeth fills the space left by the missing teeth. Healthy, existing teeth anchor the bridge. As a result, a natural, beautiful smile is restored. Not only that, the bridge keeps the remaining anchor teeth in place. If an empty space is left, the bone structure can dissolve and change over time. Eventually, eating and speaking can become difficult.
What is the process for making a bridge?
First, we will build supports using the existing teeth to anchor the bridge. Then, a mold of the entire area is created. Once the mold is made, our lab will use it to create your custom-fitted bridge. Crowns will then be placed on your real teeth at each end of the bridge, keeping the replacement teeth in place. Each custom bridge is properly prepared and fabricated from high-quality materials to feel just as natural as your real teeth.
