If you are missing one or more teeth, dental bridges could be one of the options for you. They consist of porcelain or gold crowns supported by the teeth or implants on either side of the missing tooth or teeth. The procedure of a dental bridge is very similar to that of the dental crown. Gap between teeth that is left by missing teeth can cause the teeth on either side to shift thus causing compromised bite. Restoring the gap with a dental bridge is a very effective way to improve your smile and also improve the function of teeth such as eating and speech.
