Bridgework works like a series of connected dental crowns, replacing missing teeth by bridging the gap and using the surrounding teeth as abutments.
If you are missing one or more natural teeth, then you know how much this diminishes your chewing ability. What you may not realize is that missing teeth also affect your facial structure, increasing stress on remaining teeth and often giving your cheeks a sunken appearance. If there is sufficient tooth structure remaining on surrounding teeth, we can make a bridge on the back teeth to replace the missing tooth.
Replacing your missing teeth with crowns and bridgework can actually give you a more youthful appearance. Once permanently cemented in your mouth, bridgework will look, feel and function the same as your natural teeth, giving you years of comfort, stability and esthetics.
