What is Dental Bridge?
The Dental Bridge is intended to replace missing teeth but still has adjacent teeth. Like a bridge with 2 poles, the bridge requires 2 healthy, non-moving teeth, between the spaces without the teeth.
If you have missing teeth, your dentist can close — or bridge — the gaps in your smile with dental bridges. A dental bridge is a false tooth (called a pontic) that is held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. Although pontics can be made from a variety of materials such as gold, typically they’re made from porcelain to aesthetically blend in with your natural teeth.
