A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
Types of bridges may vary, depending upon how they are fabricated and the way they attach to the adjacent teeth.The materials used for the bridges include gold, porcelain fused to metal, or sometimes porcelain alone.
What is the procedure for attaching a Dental Bridge?
A bridge is fabricated by reducing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth by a preparation pattern determined by the location of the teeth and by the material from which the bridge is fabricated.
What are the benefits of a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges provide excellent chewing comfort, require no periodic removal for cleaning, have a long life-expectancy, and are aesthetically convincing as teeth.
