Bridges can effectively prevent many problems that could arise due to missing teeth, while improving the appearance. We can prevent the shifting of teeth due to gaps from missing teeth, and eliminate the potential effects on normal speech, chewing abilities, and diseases due to exposed gums.
This process can generally be completed in two office visits - in the first visit an impression is taken, and teeth are prepped to fit the dental bridge. Then a temporary bridge is often placed while the permanent bridge is being crafted. Getting a dental bridge is one of many solutions for restoring missing teeth.

Traditional Dental Bridges: This is the most common type of dental bridge
Cantilever Dental Bridge: This is constructed the same way as traditional bridges, but it is only attached to one adjacent tooth instead of two, when only one existing tooth is next to the gap.
