Bridges are useful as corrective measures after an accident or serious dental decay. These restorations, generally made of porcelain or a composite material, are used to replace missing teeth. Bridges are a method by which to restore your bite and create a pleasant smile.
Bridges are shaped like natural teeth to replicate the missing teeth. Bridges are cemented to the neighboring teeth, and span the site of the missing tooth or teeth. After a series of impressions, the bridge is placed, adjusted and finally cemented. Multiple visits are recommended for adjustments to the bite and fit of the appliance.
Care & Maintenance
Bridges require meticulous cleaning usually with a threading floss, in addition to your standard brushing and flossing.
