In cases where a tooth are teeth are missing, dental bridges can be a great means of treatment. Your existing teeth are used to literally create a bridge across the gap in your smile. Bridges can be made from metal, gold, alloy, or porcelain to ensure they are both durable and strong.
Bridges are created by your Bridgewater cosmetic dentist creating an abutment, or connecting element, via your natural teeth where the bridge will be attached. Your existing teeth will be contoured to serve as a base for the bridge. After the abutments are created, a mold will be taken and sent off to a lab. The lab will use the mold to create a dental bridge that looks and feels like your natural teeth.
