Dental bridges are an excellent way to replace missing teeth and restore your chewing and biting functions. So, if you have a few teeth missing next to each other, this treatment might be a great option for you.
A bridge is made up of two crowns, one on each tooth on either side of the gap — these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.
Dental bridges are supported by either natural teeth or dental implants.
