Dental bridges literally bridge the gap between missing teeth.

They’re composed of a replacement tooth supported by a porcelain crown.

Gaps left from missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, rotate, and cause a lot of spacing issues. That’s why replacing missing or lost teeth is so important, and why we’re here to help.

Image of Gap Filling using Bridges - Dental Services in King of PrussiaA bridge is a way to fill in the missing gap by using abutment teeth – the teeth right next to the gap – to hold the “pontic”, or false tooth, in place. Bridges these days are usually made entirely of zirconia porcelain (however, they can be gold, porcelain/ metal alloys), these false teeth will help prevent your surrounding teeth from drifinting, putting all of your teeth out of alignment and causing issues down the road.

When it comes to a traditional bridge, the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth will need to be reshaped to accommodate the crowns. Impressions will then be taken so that the lab can create your custom-made bridge. You will have a temporary prosthetic bridge to wear while the permanent new bridge is being fabricated. The dentist will discuss with you the various material options that you have to complete the case.

At the insert appointment we will make sure the prosthesis fits well and the color is correct. When you are comfortable with the result, the bridge gets cemented in place creating a strong and natural looking replacement.

Congratulations! You’ll now have a brand-new looking set of teeth with no pain, sores, or missing gaps to worry about.
