Dental Bridges replace one or more missing teeth with support from the neighbouring teeth.
A bridge is a tooth replacement option where a false tooth is firmly attached to crowns made to fit the natural teeth next to the gap.
A bridge is usually made of a porcelain and gold alloy. The porcelain enables the laboratory to make it appear like a natural tooth whilst the gold underlay gives the bridge the strength required to eat and chew. It is a fixed restoration and is bonded or cemented into place.
If you lose a tooth due to decay or trauma a bridge is an option to replace the missing tooth. There are other options to replace a missing tooth. Speak to our dentists to find out which option is best for you.
