A dental bridge is an excellent option for patients who are missing teeth. They are also referred to as fixed bridges or fixed partial dentures. At Toronto Smile Centre, we offer bridges as treatment options for these patients.
A dental bridge restores the look and function of your mouth, by filling the gap left behind to make it easier to talk and chew. It also prevents the remaining teeth from shifting towards the gap, which leads to further oral health issues. Dental bridges can replace one or more teeth.
Dental bridges are very comfortable, and don't shift, unlike dentures, because they are cemented onto your teeth or dental implants. They also don't need to be removed to clean. You care for them the same way as regular teeth. They can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain or other tooth coloured materials, for a natural look.
