Our Services: Bridges

A "bridge" can be used to replace a missing tooth or teeth.  There needs to be at least two teeth on each side of the missing tooth or teeth.  These two natural teeth are prepared for crowns or "caps".

A dental laboratory makes crowns for those two teeth and add a tooth or teeth in between to replace the missing one(s).  The bridge is permanently cemented to the retaining teeth.

An alternative to a conventional "bridge" is a tooth implant.  Implants have become more and more popular and in many cases, is the better treatment option for long-term health of the entire dentition.
