|Crowns & Bridges|
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
One or more missing teeth can adversely affect the appearance and functionality of
your smile. Missing teeth can cause a change in occlusion (bite), shifting of the
teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech impediments, an increased
risk for periodontal disease and a greater chance of tooth decay.
A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap – these
two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth – and a false tooth/teeth in
between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys,
porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by
natural teeth or implants.
