When injury or decay results in the loss of a tooth, your smile suffers. Having a gap in your smile can cause the neighboring teeth to shift and move into the open space, misaligning the rest of your smile over time. Plus, a gap looks unhealthy and can feel uncomfortable. A porcelain bridge “bridges the gap” in your smile. Our doctors will prepare the teeth on either side of the missing tooth for porcelain crowns. Then, a tooth milled from porcelain, an organic material, is suspended between the crowns, resulting in a newly-completed smile. All three pieces are shaped and shaded to match your other teeth flawlessly, looking and feeling completely natural!
