Bridge is a fixed replacement for a missing tooth or teeth and literally “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be.
A bridge consists of false teeth rigidly attached between two crowns. The teeth on either side of the gap are prepared for these crowns and the bridge is cemented into place. Bridge is usually created from precious metal and porcelain or a combination of these materials and are attached to surrounding teeth for support. It's made by taking an impression of the surrounding teeth, which will eventually support the bridge.
The bridge restores your bite and helps keep the natural shape of your face.
