  • Leaving untreated gaps may result in gum disease and other dental hygiene issues.

How do Dental Bridges work?

Our patients will be given the opportunity to wear dental bridges in order to replace lost teeth without the need to wear dentures or even undergoing surgery. The fresh tooth will be held in place with the help of crowns. The bridges will be made out of ceramic or porcelain material to match the surrounding teeth. It is recommended that you whiten your teeth before the procedures as the restoratives used are stain and bleach resistant. If the bridges are created to match yellow teeth, it will remain yellow even if you try to whiten the teeth at a later stage.
