WHAT ARE THEY?
Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth or a section of missing teeth by using the adjacent teeth to hold it in place.
The adjacent teeth are prepared in a similar way to the crown procedure. The bridge is bonded on the prepared adjacent teeth, covering the adjacent teeth and replacing the missing teeth at the same time. In addition to removable bridges, which can be removed and cleaned, there are several types of fixed dental bridges (cannot be removed). The bridge is bonded in so you never have to take it out.
