Dental bridgework is used to stabilize the bite if you are missing one or more teeth. This is no small task, considering teeth surrounding a missing tooth can drift out of alignment and change your bite – which can result in other problems, such as loss of additional teeth, tooth decay, gum disease, and even chronic headaches.

A bridge is essentially a band of connecting crowns bonded onto existing teeth. We offer several different configurations, including the traditional bridge, which consists of two crowns covering the teeth on either side of a gap with a false tooth in between. If a patient has teeth on only one side of a gap, we’ll use a cantilever bridge.
