Permanent Bridges

Permanent bridges are fixed, non-removable appliances that eliminate the need to remove partial dentures and function the same as the teeth that are being replaced. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.  You can brush them, floss them and take care of them just like your natural teeth!

Reasons for a fixed bridge:

  • Restore your smile

  • Fill space of missing teeth

  • Maintain facial shape

  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
