Missing even one tooth impacts one’s entire oral health. Our dental clinic can help you reclaim your strongest, most attractive smile. A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to anchor the prosthetic (replacement) tooth firmly in place.

- Porcelain bridges blend flawlessly with the rest of your teeth
Crowns and bridges are most commonly prepared from high quality materials such as semi-precious or precious metals, porcelain or a fused combination of the two. Aesthetics, function and tissue compatibility are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you.
