Dental bridges are an excellent option to replace missing teeth, providing you with a beautiful, natural looking restoration. Your bridge will consist of two dental crowns which go on the adjacent teeth, and a false tooth which will be placed in the gap.
Dental bridges are an effective alternative to dental implants and dentures. They offer you a more stable restoration than dentures, and the bridge will be bonded in place, providing a permanent restoration.
If you need to replace multiple missing teeth, Dr. Barone may recommend implant-supported bridges instead of traditional tooth-supported bridges. In this procedure, dental implants will be used instead of your natural teeth to support your dental bridge. An implant will be placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth, and a series of dental crowns will be connected together to form one cohesive bridge. In order to be a candidate for implant-supported bridges, you must have sufficient bone in your jaw to support the dental implants.
