When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth cause you to chew differently, may cause mouth pain, and as your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by your doctor at Northwood Dental, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are usually made of two or more supporting crowns, which are placed on your teeth on either side of the missing tooth. Between those teeth, Dr. Penfold affixes a prosthetic tooth, milled out of porcelain, to bridge the gap in your smile. The end result blends in perfectly with your natural teeth!
