Dental bridges are an alternative method to replacing missing teeth. A dental bridge is literally a set of crowns which ‘bridge’ the gap of the lost tooth. To construct a bridge, the two adjacent teeth are reduced in size to allow crowns to be fitted; the bridge span is then attached and cemented in place.
Dental bridges are a quick alternative to replacing a missing tooth completely and can improve your ability to bite, chew and can even improve speech.
Our expert team here at Cooper St Dental, Double Bay, can provide you with assistance in your decision to use dental crowns or bridges.
