When the replacement of one or two teeth is required a patient often wishes to have an option that is fixed in the mouth at all times, not removable. There are a couple of options for this in today’s modern dentistry. A dental implant is one treatment option. Another way to replace a missing tooth would be with a fixed bridge. This treatment utilizes the surrounding teeth around the missing tooth as a foundation and the natural teeth are covered by crowns onto which the entire unit is permanently cemented in place. The fixed bridge is usually covered by or made of entirely of natural esthetic porcelain. It is fabricated by a dental laboratory to match the shade and position of your natural teeth.

Benefits of a three unit bridge:
- Replace missing teeth.
- Stabilizes the teeth to prevent shifting.
- Protects the anchor teeth on both ends of the bridge.
- Functional and natural looking option.
