Replace a Missing Tooth With a Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is one option for filling the space created by a missing tooth.

One or two replacement teeth (dental crowns) are attached to the adjacent teeth or dental implant on either side for support, creating a bridge. These crowns stabilize the artificial tooth that fills the gap left by the missing tooth. The bridge replaces missing teeth, both functionally and cosmetically. Dental bridges are custom made from molds and impressions of your teeth, so your restoration will look like your natural teeth and will aesthetically match and fit your smile. When in place, a bridge can improve your smile by:

  • Preventing the remaining teeth from shifting into the space left by the missing tooth
  • Relieving uneven, excess stress on the bite
  • Enhancing the natural beauty of your smile
  • Improving your ability to properly eat, chew and speak
  • Restoring the shape and volume of your face
  • Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
