What is a bridge?

A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that ‘bridges the gap’ in areas of the mouth where one or more teeth are missing, helping to restore chewing function and aesthetic correction to the area. A bridge can also help prevent a bad bite, as well as gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, which can be caused by missing teeth.

Made from porcelain, porcelain-fused metals, silver, or gold materials, the bridge is anchored to dental crowns on one or both sides of the gap, with a replacement artificial tooth (also known as a pontic) filling the gap. Once your dentist has positioned and secured the bridge, it is then cemented in place.

How long do crowns & bridges last?

With focused, ongoing hygiene habits, these restorative devices can last a lifetime!
