A dental bridge is made up of two dental crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth in between. Natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of natural teeth and dental implants can be used to support the bridge.  What you choose will depend on the condition of your smile, your cost goals, and the cosmetic results you desire. Whether you are looking for a temporary or permanent tooth loss solution, there is a bridge ideally suited for your needs.  There are several different materials that they can be made out of.  In the early 1980’s, we used a combination of metal and porcelain.  With today’s newer dental materials we are making bridges all white, with no metal at all.  These newer style bridges are not only stronger, but more cosmetic.  Please give us a call to setup a consultation to discuss your different options.
