A dental bridge is an affordable, proven and common treatment for patients who have missing teeth. It is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed prosthesis) used to replace a missing tooth or several teeth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
Many different materials may be used to make replacement teeth including gold, silver or cobalt chrome. For aesthetic reasons, bridges are often made from porcelain.
The surrounding teeth are the foundation for a dental bridge, which means that these teeth must be free not be decaying or have structural problems.
At your initial consultation Dr Julia assesses your overall oral health and if a dental bridge is the right treatment for you.
