A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth held in place by attachment to the teeth next to it. Dental bridges are used to fill the space where a tooth has been removed or has fallen out.
Dental bridges help restore the look of your smile and your ability to chew comfortably. Dental bridges preserve the integrity or your existing teeth by preventing them from shifting to fill the space of the missing tooth. The two anchoring teeth must be prepared by removing a portion of the enamel to allow for a crown. Next a mold is made, so the bridge fits perfectly in between your teeth. A temporary bridge may also be made to hold the space open until your permanent bridge can be made and implanted.
