Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges

Bridges are made up of one or more dental crowns that are joined together and fixed (cemented) to the teeth on the sides of the missing tooth for a secure and functional fit. Bridges involve placing crowns on the adjoining teeth as part of the structure for support of the bridge. X-rays, impressions and, in many cases, photographs are taken to assist in the design and fabrication of a bridge. Since a bridge does involve several teeth, great care is taken in the crafting and preparation of the bridge to ensure stability, a good fit and the desired functionality.
