Benefits of a Dental Bridge

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. These two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth, with a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.


Bridges and Crowns can:

  • Restore your smile,

  • restore your ability to properly chew and speak,

  • maintain the shape of your face,

  • distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth

  • and prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
