Dental bridges are suitable for individuals with one or more missing teeth who have healthy adjacent teeth or dental implants to support the bridge.
With proper care and regular dental check-ups, dental bridges can last for many years, often ranging from 5 to 15 years or even longer.
Dental bridges are designed to closely mimic the look, feel, and function of natural teeth, providing a comfortable and seamless dental restoration.
Traditional dental bridges are fixed and not removable. However, there are removable dental bridges available, known as implant-supported overdentures, which provide stability and flexibility.
Yes, dental bridges restore your ability to eat a wide range of foods. However, it is advisable to avoid extremely hard or sticky foods that may damage the bridge.

Dental bridges are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance. They are designed to be discreet and blend in with your smile.
