Bridges
 

 

 A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces or spans the space where one or more teeth have been lost. We replace teeth for three reasons.

  • function - to ensure a complete chewing surface
  • Stability of adjacent teeth - when a tooth is lost the nearby teeth tilt into the empty space, or the teeth in  oppostie jaw may shift up or down towards the space
  • Aesthetics

A bridge consist of two crowns on either side of the missing space with the replacement "fake"  tooth in the middle where the space once was. The process takes several visits and a temporary bridge is made in the interim, before the final the bridge is inserted in place.
