What Is A Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges aid in replacing missing teeth. A dental bridge treatment is a series of dental crowns fused together to bridge the gap between a missing tooth or a few missing teeth. Like a conventional auto or pedestrian bridge, there must be connecting teeth on each side of the missing tooth or gap. This allows the dental bridge(s) to be cemented or permanently placed in the mouth.
When Do You Need a Bridge?
Your dentist may recommend a bridge to do the following:
- Restore a damaged tooth.
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
- Replace a large filling when there’s isn’t enough tooth remaining.
- Cover a dental implant.
- Cover a discolored or poorly structured tooth.
