Missing teeth can cause more issues than simply an unappealing smile. The void left by missing teeth can hamper biting and chewing, create issues with talking, lead to displacement of adjacent teeth, and cause changes in the contour of the face. If you need a tooth removed or currently have missing teeth, a dental bridge can replace your missing tooth or teeth and restore your smile. With appropriate care, a dental bridge is exceptionally solid and sturdy.
A dental bridge is basically a false tooth bonded between two dental crowns. The dental crowns fit over the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, and afterward the bridge fills the hole. The bridge is made to look like your regular teeth as nearly as possible in shade, shape, and size.
