What Are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are oral appliances consisting of one or more artificial teeth. They are supported by the adjacent teeth and fill in the gap left by one or several missing teeth.
Dental bridges can be permanently attached (fixed bridges) or removable, and are manufactured from metal, porcelain, or a mix of the two.
Fixed dental bridges are supported by crowns on either side (placed on top of the adjacent teeth) or bonded to the neighboring teeth.
Removable dental bridges are attached to the adjacent teeth with metal clasps.
At Edgewater Dental, our professional dental experts will walk you through your options and recommend the most suitable one.

- Restore your ability to chew food and speak properly
- Fill the space left by missing teeth restoring your smile
- Prevent facial sagging by supporting your facial structure
- Keep teeth from shifting into the empty space left by the missing teeth
- Prevent bite problems
