If you have a missing tooth, a dental bridge may be a suitable option. Not only can a porcelain bridge be aesthetically pleasing, it can reduce the risk for periodontal disease, as well as return proper function to your bite. By having a bridge placed promptly after losing a tooth, you may be able to prevent other teeth from shifting out of position.

This type of restoration covers the place where one or more teeth are lost from the dental arch. Essentially, a dental bridge is a false tooth that is used to fill the area. Two porcelain crowns are created on either side of the false tooth to provide support. If the surrounding teeth already require crowns, a bridge may work well. And when a bridge is done by an expert cosmetic dentist like Dr. Jenny Miller, it will have a natural, translucent appearance. It will look just like your natural tooth.
