A dental bridge is a restoration technique used to replace a missing tooth, by permanently joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth, or an already existing dental implant. Generally, a fake tooth is fused between two crowns in order to replace the missing tooth.
A bridge is a custom design to fit the empty space that used to be occupied by a tooth, and recreate the look of a full smile while preventing surrounding teeth from moving out of position. It's also vital to keep in mind that when spaces are created due to missing teeth will leave surrounding teeth and exposed gums more susceptible to infection and other oral health issues.
A dental bridge has the ability to reduce your risk of developing gum disease, correct bite issues, improve speech and improve your overall smile. If you follow all the guidelines to maintaining your oral health, it should last ten years as a minimum or longer.
