Porcelain Bridges

A bridge is a device used to fill the space where a tooth has fallen out or been removed. We offer a number of different porcelain bridges at our office in Michigan. A typical bridge consists of a pontic (filler tooth) that is attached to two surrounding crowns (abutments). Once complete, this bridge structure is bonded into the mouth. Without the use of a bridge, gaps in the mouth where natural teeth are missing can cause multiple teeth to shift, lead to occlusion (biting) and / or jaw problems, and spur periodontal disease. Bridges safeguard the integrity of existing teeth and help maintain a healthy, vibrant smile.
