What is a dental bridge?

Dental bridges are restorations used to replace one or more missing teeth with artificial teeth. Bridges are considered non-removable dental restorations because they are permanently fixed in your mouth, most often held in place by crowns that are attached to existing teeth. The dental bridges Dr. Meltzer and Dr. Hsieh design are carefully constructed to match the color and shape of your existing teeth and to enhance the beauty of your smile. For the convenience of our patients, dental bridges can be completed in as few as two visits.


Is a dental bridge right for me?

There are many ways that a dental bridge can be used to improve the quality of your smile. If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can restore your smile by:


  • Adding shape and volume to your face
  • Preventing remaining existing teeth from shifting
  • Making chewing and speaking more natural
  • Relieving the stress on your bite
