All Ceramic Dental Bridges
When a tooth is missing or needs to be pulled, it’s important to preserve the space so that the neighboring teeth don’t start to tilt or drift inward. Dental bridges are a perfect solution.
Not only does a bridge replace the missing tooth, it also provides the opposing arch with a neighbor to bite against, so that they do not drift out of alignment either.
If you’re not a candidate for dental implants and prefer not to wear a removable partial denture, then a bridge may be your best choice. Michelle Eng, DDS will review all of your options with you, so that you can make an educated decision about your restorative treatment.
What is a Bridge?
Dental bridges are like three or four dental crowns fused side by side. However, only the crowns on each end are “functional.” That is, they can be bonded over healthy teeth or dental implants, suspending the pontic (artificial) crowns between them; thus, “bridging” the gap left behind when a tooth or teeth have been removed.
