What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental Bridge | River Harmony Dental | General & Family Dentist | Cochrane | Alberta

A dental bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is a dental restoration that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Using abutment teeth to anchor the bridge to, a bridge essentially “bridges” or fills in the gap left behind from the missing teeth. By placing an artificial tooth in the area where the gap is, a bridge can give you back the smile you desire. Coloured and shaped exactly like natural teeth and customized specifically to your teeth’s natural shade and shape, a bridge blends seamlessly in with the rest of your teeth. It is extremely durable, strong, and aesthetically pleasing. The teeth that are immediately beside the gap are crowned in order to keep the bridge in place and stabilize your overall bite. Not only does a bridge allow your bite to feel more balanced and healthier, it enhances your ability to speak and chew.
