Permanent bridges are an excellent way to replace a missing tooth. The best explanation of a bridge is to think of it as three crowns. The tooth on either side of the missing area is trimmed just like a crown. Our laboratory fabricates the bridge by making a crown for the teeth on either side of the missing area with the fake tooth in the middle. The bridge is then cemented in the mouth.
This video shows you how a bridge replaces a missing tooth using CAD/CAM 3-D technology to create a custom-made restoration.
This video shows you what to expect after getting a bridge, as well as how to care for and protect it from damage.
