A dental bridge is an artificial or prosthetic tooth that can be used to replace a single missing tooth or several teeth in a row.
Dental bridges can be made from various materials including porcelain and metal. The choice of material depends on your budget and the position of the bridge in your mouth.
A traditional dental bridge is supported on either side of the gap left by a missing tooth (or teeth) by dental crowns. These are fixed to the natural teeth to ‘anchor’ the bridge in place. There are many different types of bridge which your dentist can use to ‘bridge’ the gap. They will discuss which is the most appropriate one for you.
Dentists take Impressions of the natural remaining teeth so that the laboratory can create the exact size and shape of bridge you need. Once this is securely fixed in place, it can only be removed by a dental professional and provides a strong, resilient solution for lost teeth.
Dental bridges can last for many years if you maintain a good tooth care routine.
