Bridges replace missing teeth with natural-looking artificial teeth. They literally "bridge the gap" where one or more teeth may have been.
Dr. Kratz may recommend a bridge if you are missing one or more teeth. A bridge can alleviate stress on other teeth caused by the missing teeth, restore your ability to properly chew and speak, and most importantly, restore your smile.
At Edina Dental Care, we offer Lava™ Bridges, which are crafted from porcelain with a zirconia substructure. These bridges are the most aesthetically pleasing and may be an ideal alternative to porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations. We also offer porcelain bridges with metal and gold substructures. Metal and gold substructures have proven over time to be a strong, long-lasting option. Dr. Kratz will assess all aspects of your oral health in order to recommend the best bridge option for you.
