Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth at Barry E. Malkiel, DDS. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. These teeth, called abutments, serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments. Dr. Barry Malkiel can match the porcelain or ceramic bridges to the color of your natural teeth.
