Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth. Bridges are made from gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable. The bridge consists of two crowns on the teeth on either side of the missing tooth and a pontic, which is the new tooth that replaces your missing tooth.
We will fit you with a temporary bridge while we wait for the lab to craft your permanent bridge. This will protect the teeth and the exposed gum areas and look more appealing than having a missing tooth. When the permanent bridge has been created, you will have a follow up visit to insert the bridge.
The bridge may take a little while to get used to, but after a few days it should feel like you have your own teeth back again. If you are missing a tooth you should strongly consider having it replaced. Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of missing a tooth, it could also cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw, as well as making it difficult to eat or speak properly.
