What is a dental bridge
A dental bridge utilizes beautifully designed dental crowns to ‘bridge’ the gap that is left by the missing teeth. They remain an amazing restorative option for patients who wants a fixed (does not need to be removed like a denture) prosthetic treatment, providing there is suitable neighboring teeth to support the prosthesis and proper oral hygiene.

What to expect
Before the dental bridge is placed, the dentist will start by preparing the teeth adjacent to the gap. An impression is taken of the prepared teeth, and sent to the lab. In the meantime, a temporary prosthesis will be fabricated and inserted. Multiple, conjoined dental crowns (ie. bridge) are crafted at the lab to look and feel just like your natural teeth. At a second appointment, the finished bridge is then inserted over the adjacent teeth so that they can serve as support for the prosthesis. They are firmly bonded with the remaining adjacent teeth giving you a full and beautiful smile.
