bridges

Not only does a missing tooth mean an obvious gap in your smile, but also it can cause significant problems later as your teeth shift and try to fill the space. Your solution may be a porcelain bridge. A porcelain bridge utilizes the teeth on either side of the space to provide the supportive structure for a porcelain restoration that will look and feel just like a natural tooth. After a little tooth preparation, your doctor will place custom-fitted crowns over the adjacent teeth. Between these teeth, a porcelain tooth is permanently affixed to the crowns. The look and feel of the overall restoration will be completely natural, and you will regain both form and function in your smile.
