For patients who are missing one or more of their original teeth, we also offer the option of dental bridges. Dental bridges restore the appearance and the health of the mouth, and return strength to the bite. They also prevent natural teeth from shifting into the gaps left by missing teeth. Bridges are pontics, or artificial teeth crafted from strong, durable porcelain, that are supported by crowns on either end. They are perfectly secure, so patients can eat, speak, and smile with absolute confidence. Dr. Gross takes special care in customizing dental bridges for his patients, ensuring that they fit comfortably and perfectly complement the surrounding natural teeth. With proper maintenance and a commitment to oral hygiene, this dental appliance can last for many years.
