Missing teeth can cause your smile to undergo significant changes. Remaining teeth can drift out of place and your chewing and speech can suffer, as well. A bridge is used to fill in the gap created by a missing tooth or teeth, restoring your ability to eat, speak, chew, and smile with confidence.
A bridge consists of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap with a tooth-like restoration in the middle. Bridges are supported by natural teeth or by dental implants and are typically made of metals, alloys, or porcelain. Porcelain bridges closely mimic the shape and color of natural teeth.
A custom bridge designed by Dr. Gregg or Dr. Bradd Testerman, will keep your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are semi-permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by the dentist, and are a long-term, restorative solution for missing teeth.
