If you are missing a tooth it may lead to the following:
- A feeling of self-consciousness about your appearance
- Limitations in your ability to chew
- Shifting and tilting of teeth
- A loss of support for the lips and cheeks
A fixed bridge utilizes the natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth to hold in place an artificial tooth. Bridges may be made from metal, ceramics, or a combination of both. We will discuss with you the options best suited to meet your needs and preferences.
