  • Prevent your teeth from shifting

  • Replace an old or unwanted partial denture

Dental bridges are comprised of two crowns that go over the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. These teeth are called “abutment” teeth. In between the crowns, the dentist will place an artificial tooth or “pontic.” This tooth looks and functions just like the rest of your natural teeth. The best part about having a dental bridge is that it looks completely natural: no one can tell you’re wearing it!  Please give us a call to learn about dental bridge treatments.
