Dental bridges are one of the options to replace missing teeth.
Dental bridges are very successful provided that the abutment teeth holding the bridge are of good health and remain so.
Dental bridges are fixed to specially prepared teeth. These teeth are usually the teeth either end of a gap. They are made from the same materials as dental crowns. A dental bridge is used to bridge a gap (missing teeth) between healthy teeth. Teeth on either side of the gap are reshaped and reduced in size. These then act as anchors, or abutments. The dental bridge is attached to these anchor teeth - filling the missing tooth or teeth space.
Now that I have no gaps I can smile and eat with confidence.
