Are you bothered by a gap between your teeth? Has an injury or severe tooth decay caused major damage to one or more of your teeth? Well, if the answer is yes, then you might like to consider the option of getting a ‘bridge’.
WHAT ARE DENTAL BRIDGES?
A dental bridge offers the ideal solution for those who have missing teeth. These false teeth are designed for filling up the spaces left behind by one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is typically composed of two (or more) teeth crowns placed on both sides of the identified gap. The term ‘abutment teeth’ is used to refer to these anchoring teeth and between these support teeth is a fake tooth (or teeth). The false teeth may be called ‘pontics’. These are typically made of alloys, porcelain, gold or a mix of these different materials. Implants or natural teeth help in supporting dental bridges.
