Bridges

Bridges

Bridges are used to:

  •  Replace the need for a removable denture
  •  Prevent your existing natural teeth to shift out of their current position
  •  Restore your ability to speak and eat food back to normal
  •  Enhance the appearance and shape of your smile

If a patient is missing a tooth or even a series of non-consecutive teeth our dentists may suggest placing a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a series of crowns that span multiple teeth.

A dental bridge, unlike a denture, is a fixed dental restoration meaning that it is non-removable. At a minimum a dental bridge is fixed in place with the use of two abutment or anchor crowns either on existing natural teeth or on implants spanning over the space left by the missing tooth.

To complete a bridge restoration at our Shrewsbury, New Jersey location typically takes two to three visits depending on the complexity of the restoration. This dental procedure is designed to restore your natural smile and function.
