Bridges are an alternative to implants or dentures for replacing missing teeth. A dental bridge most commonly replaces 1 or 2 teeth at a time and is anchored by the teeth on either side of the space, thus the name “bridge”. A bridge can fill a space between two teeth while giving your teeth greater structure and strength. Like crowns, bridges are custom made and are most commonly tooth coloured.
Leaving a space and not replacing missing teeth is an option, however this can lead to oral health issues including the other teeth shifting or tilting — thus affecting your bite, the way you chew, and your smile. Bridges, implants, and dentures are all great options to replace missing teeth. Dr Rzepka and Dr Parker will discuss the best options with you for your smile to replace your missing teeth!
