A bridge can be used when there is a gap left by missing tooth with teeth on either side of it. Like implants, bridges are one method of creating a natural looking smile. Bridges can help to redistribute the pressure of your bite to make chewing a more comfortable experience. Bridges can be made from multiple materials, with most people choosing porcelain or an alloy.
Once the bridge is made, it is then anchored to the jaw through by the surrounding teeth. For those who are missing multiple teeth, it is also possible to have an implant-supported dental bridge, but this will require multiple dental sessions to ensure healthy healing and comfort.
