Permanent Bridges Offer an Additional Option For Tooth Replacement



If you have lost a tooth, we may recommend a permanent bridge to replace it. Today's bridges provide the look and function of natural teeth. Bridges work best when there's a single missing tooth surrounded by healthy teeth. Teeth on either side of the missing tooth are prepared for a crown. We will take an impression of the teeth to create your new bridge. Crowns are designed to cover the two teeth that have been prepared by the dentist. A third crown is designed to fill in the space vacated by the missing tooth—this crown is permanently attached to the crowns on either side forming a bridge over the space where the tooth was lost.

The bridge is designed in a laboratory to fit your bite and match the color of the surrounding teeth. Your smile will look like you've never had a cavity or a missing tooth! We will adjust the color of the porcelain crowns to match surrounding teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile. The result is a beautiful replacement tooth that increases the youthful quality of your smile!
