Bridges

A bridge is a way to fill the space of a missing tooth. The teeth either side of the missing tooth are prepared for crowns, the bridge is made and cemented on to the teeth with the missing tooth joined to the crowns to ‘bridge the gap’

While restoring missing teeth bridges help to support remaining teeth and keep them in their proper position. Bridges are a long term solution which can help prevent the cycle of problems that occur when just one tooth is missing, such as shifting and drifting of remaining teeth, decay and periodontal bone loss. Unlike dentures, a bridge is not removable, giving increased support and stability within the mouth.

Emax is also the ideal choice for the short-span bridges for your anterior / front teeth.
