A dental bridge replaces missing teeth, and improves the ability to eat and speak. Bridges were designed to allow the patient to reclaim their smile and appearance, along with functionality. It is also a great alternative to removable prosthetics such as partial dentures.
An array of materials can be used to fabricate a dental bridge. For posterior teeth, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) components are used to create durability and long-term function. For anterior dentition, porcelain jacket crowns and bridges may be implemented to ensure flawless appearance and a beautiful smile. The ultimate goal is to restore the patient’s ability to masticate (chew) and converse in a natural manner.
