Bridges are prescribed for teeth that are decaying, broken or have damage. They are used when one or more teeth are missing AND there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open space. Preparation begins by eliminating the unhealthy tooth structure. Fabrication of the bridge is completed in our onsite lab and then cemented to the prepared teeth. The final product restores the teeth’s natural beauty and health. There are three types of materials used in bridges — solid gold for reliable long wear, porcelain fused to a gold base for strength and beauty, or a high-strength metal-free porcelain for optimum cosmetic results. With proper care, a new bridge will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.
