A dental bridge is an excellent way to replace a single or multiple missing teeth. It is permanently cemented in the mouth and functions just like your original teeth. The bridge sits on existing teeth in front and behind the missing tooth space. The bridge can be made of a metal or zirconia substructure with porcelain on top to be both functional and highly aesthetic.
The bridge is made in 2 appointments. The first appointment involves preparing the teeth that the bridge sits on and a temporary made after impression or scan has been taken. The second appointment the bridge is fitted and checked before permanently cemented into the mouth.
Dental bridges can also be sitting on dental implants restoring multiple teeth at the same time.
