For one or more missing teeth, dental bridges literally “bridge the gap” between remaining teeth, stabilizing the jaw by surrounding those teeth with attractive crowns. As the name suggests, dental bridge is typically made up of an artificial tooth that is fused between two crowns and extends across an area with missing teeth. The bridge is held firmly in place by your own teeth on each side of the missing one(s) or by dental implants.
A bridge is usually permanent and cannot be removed. The need and effect of the procedure depends on your oral health and hygiene.
How Can We Help?
A dental bridge is made up of two or more crowns that anchor onto the natural teeth to fill the gap between teeth. Implanting a dental bridge is an effective restoration procedure used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fillings or dental implants may be required to increase the abutment teeth.
During a consultation, our dentists at Castlemore Dental will determine the most appropriate procedure depending on your health and oral hygiene. We’ll assess your oral health to find out whether bridges will work for you or not.
