Porcelain Bridges

A bridge is one method to fill the space created by a missing tooth or missing teeth. A bridge is one or more artificial teeth that are cemented into place using the teeth on either side for support, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material made to match your natural tooth color. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics
