What Is A Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are restorations used to seamlessly replace a missing tooth. A bridge uses two healthy adjacent teeth to support and hold in place a replacement tooth that fills the gap. Bridges can be used in all kinds of situations and both restore and improve the aesthetics of our patient's smiles.

This patient came in with a missing front tooth. We were unable to get a picture with the missing tooth so the before is showing her with a temporary bridge in place. We placed a
A permanent bridge in to fill the gap. This case was particularly challenging because the patient had a difficult shade to match. It took some time but we were thrilled with the result! We always take the time to make sure it looks great!
This patient wanted to regain the smile she had when she was younger. We used both dental crowns and bridges to help her achieve this. The two front teeth were deliberately left long because this is the way they were on the patient when she was younger. We used past photos of the patient to work with the lab a give here back her youthful smile again!
