How does a dental bridge work?

A dental bridge is a type of restoration that we use to replace a missing tooth. It fills the empty space, restoring your appearance and the function of the tooth.dental bridge diagram or illustration

Just about anyone with a missing tooth is a good candidate for a dental bridge. Of course, you should keep in mind that everyone has unique needs, and Dr. Sanati and Dr. Shahram will help you decide if a bridge is the right choice for you.

A dental bridge is one unit that usually consists of three or more parts. The main part of the bridge is the artificial tooth that will fill the space left by the missing tooth. This is referred to as the pontic.

Since we must secure the pontic to your teeth, dental crowns are placed on either side to form one stable restoration. The dental crowns are then attached to neighboring teeth, leaving you with a functional, aesthetic replacement tooth.
