A bridge is used to fill in spaces from lost teeth. A bridge can be removable or it can be cemented. Fixed or cemented bridges are more expensive, but they are more stable and life-like.
What is a Bridge?
A dental bridge is a false tooth, known as a pontic, which is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place that are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth. This is known as a fixed bridge. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures.
