What is a bridge?
A dental bridge, quite literally, bridges the gap between teeth that are missing. It is made up of two or more crowns on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics.
A dental bridge:
- Restores your smile
- Restores the ability to properly chew and speak
- Maintains the shape of your face
- Distributes the forces in your bite properly by replacing the missing teeth
- Prevents remaining teeth from moving out of position
