A dental bridge can be a wonderful option for replacing single or even multiple teeth. Dental bridges permanently replace your missing teeth by joining to the natural adjacent teeth to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
What is a dental bridge? A bridge is made by preparing the anchor teeth for crowns in order to create space for the chosen restorative material to restore the size and shape of the original teeth and to enable the gap to be bridged by a pontic or false tooth. To learn how a bridge is prepared, check out our 3D video on bridge preparation below:
Similar to tooth crowns, dental bridges can be constructed from cast metal materials, such as gold or high-grade porcelain, which is the preferred choice for cosmetic treatments. Dental bridges are sealed or bonded into place using a dental cement and fixed permanently in the mouth.
