A great way to replace missing teeth
Have you lost one or more teeth? You may be a great candidate for a dental bridge. A well-crafted porcelain bridge looks just like your natural teeth and restores your smile to its original health and function.
As the name suggests, this treatment “bridges” the gap left in your mouth by a missing tooth. With this procedure, the bridge is held in place by the healthy teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile.
Dental bridges are fixed in place and considered by many to be a better alternative to removable partial dentures. We’ll help you decide if this treatment is right for you.
