A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate
stress on your bite. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally
bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from gold,
alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials, and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for
support. The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone
to which it is attached. Therefore, it's very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw
healthy and strong.
