FIXED DENTAL BRIDGES
To replace a missing tooth, or a few in a row, a dental bridge literally bridges the gap. We work with talented ceramists at reputable dental labs so that the materials and quality of the bridges we place are of high quality.

There, a ceramist will use the guide and Dr. Kennedy’s detailed notes to fabricate a custom dental bridge just for you. The bridge will consist of one or more replacement teeth set between two dental crowns. After we receive the bridge from the lab, you’ll return so that we can complete the procedure.
