Missing teeth can sometimes be replaced by fixed bridges. A fixed bridge is a dental prosthesis that uses the tooth in front of the missing space and the tooth behind the missing space as anchors to hold the bridge. If these teeth already have large restorations, this may be a viable choice because the teeth already have had work on them. However, if these teeth are not filled, a dental implant may be the better choice because an implant allows us to restore the missing tooth without drilling otherwise healthy teeth.
Esthetics and Function
A dental bridge can very easily and reliably replace a missing tooth or teeth. And as is the case with single crowns, they are esthetic, long-lasting and functional restorations. You will be able to smile and eat as you would with natural teeth!
