Dental Bridges

colton dentist bridge

A bridge is a fixed permanent restoration used to replace a space of missing teeth. It involves preparing the teeth on either side of the space so that they can hold together the artificial tooth (can be multiple artifical teeth) that will fill the missing space. The bridge is designed so that the area between the artificial tooth and gums can be cleaned with dental flossers and proxy brushes.

When will your dentist recommend a bridge?

  • When you have a missing tooth or a span of multiple missing teeth
  • When the teeth next to the missing space already have crowns on them
  • When your replacement is not a good candidate for an implant
