Porcelain bridges are another option if you lose a tooth or teeth or are missing one or more teeth. Losing a tooth has an impact on your remaining teeth which tend to “drift” out of position. This leads to crooked teeth, a change in your bite, possible gum disease and tooth decay, and the possible loss of more teeth. Fixed bridges are non-removable restorations made up of one or more replacement teeth. They are anchored by one or more crowns on each side and are cemented to remaining teeth. Bridges can include up to four replacement teeth (with natural teeth on both sides of the gap to act as anchors) and look very natural.
In addition to dental bridges, our dentists offer implants and cosmetic dentures for tooth replacement. Which option is best for you can be determined during your consultation with Dr. Tjoa or Dr. Morency.
