Missing teeth can have a significant impact on both your appearance and dental function. They can affect your ability to smile, speak and chew comfortably. Additionally, the absence of teeth can lead to the gradual shifting of adjacent teeth, altering your smile’s alignment and bite. Teeth in the opposing arch may also extrude, compromising your overall bite. Moreover, the misalignment caused by missing teeth can make it difficult to maintain proper oral hygiene, leading to cavities and gum disease.

Fortunately, modern dentistry offers effective solutions to restore your smile’s beauty and function. Dental bridges are a stable and fixed option for replacing missing teeth. Unlike removable partial dentures, dental bridges rely on the support of crowns attached to adjacent teeth or dental implants. They not only restore the appearance and function of natural teeth but also prevent neighboring teeth from shifting, preserving your bite’s alignment.

Dental bridges are crafted from high-quality materials like porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and zirconia, ensuring strength, durability and natural aesthetics. There are also different types of dental bridges, including traditional fixed bridges and implant-supported bridges. Traditional fixed bridges involve crowning teeth on either side of the gap to support the pontics, while implant-supported bridges use dental implants to provide support without involving adjacent natural teeth. Our dentists will discuss all your options with you to find the right type of bridge for your needs.
