While cosmetic effect of missing teeth is often a concern, the greater issue is the inability to chew food and maintain healthy gums. A dental bridge is used to provide tooth replacement for one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge procedure uses a crown, and fuses it between two porcelain crowns to fill the empty area. In no time, the missing tooth/teeth are replaced, giving you back a smile with no gaps. Along with good dental hygiene, preventative oral care and regular check-ups, dental bridges can last for a number of years.
