We can use a dental bridge to replace one missing tooth or even two or three in a row. With a bridge, a dental crown is attached on top of each of the natural teeth on the ends of the gap. One to three artificial teeth are fused to these crowns, smoothly filling the space between them. Since the bridge is firmly supported by your natural teeth, you can count on it to always stay in place.
For a more versatile and permanent way to replace any number of lost teeth, consider dental implants. Instead of merely recreating the visible portions of the teeth above the gumline, these titanium posts are placed directly into the jawbone. After fusing with your own anatomy, the implants can potentially remain in place for life as they support dental crowns, bridges, or dentures that look and feel almost exactly like your old pearly whites.
