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.
Dental bridges are very quick, easy and painless to do. They can stop teeth from drifting into gaps. They will improve function, bite, chewing, cosmetics and help filling out the face where you have lost teeth.
Dental bridges are a safe option to replace missing teeth when you do not wish a partial denture or dental implant.
