Dental bridge acts as a bridge where there is a gap in the teeth. Crowns are fixed on the teeth either side of the gap, these are then joined by a false tooth which bridges the gap. The dental bridge is permanent and will be matched in colour to your other teeth so the appearance of the new tooth is natural. The bridge stops the adjacent teeth from moving.
Missing or crooked teeth can affect your smile, confidence and facial appearance. Missing teeth increase the chance of food accumulating in the gap, which may cause gum disease and tooth decay. A missing tooth may have an impact on bone loss unless replaced. In addition, it can also be uncomfortable when eating. Adjacent teeth start to lean into the space of the missing tooth and alter the way upper and lower teeth bite.
