Dental Bridges have been used for centuries to replace missing teeth. Today, they are still considered one of the most durable, conservative and cost-effective options for bridging the gap between a missing tooth and surrounding teeth. Comprised of two anchoring teeth and a replacement tooth, they help prevent surrounding teeth from drifting out of position, improve chewing and speaking, and help keep your natural face shape intact.
Dental bridges typically take 2-3 weeks to complete. If a bridge is contemplated always ask about the dental implant alternative. Usually the implant is the longest lasting, most natural replacement for a missing tooth. In the long run, it is often the most economical as well.
